  • Kate Winslet has some wise words for Miley Cyrus, as she talks opening about fame and family life.

    Kate Winslet has shared some words of wisdom for Miley Cyrus, as she opens up about fame in a new interview.

    The Titanic star, who gave birth to a baby boy last month, said she worries young stars like Miley had ‘lost their way’.

    Kate told Psychologies magazine: ‘You hear horror stories where you think, ‘God, who’s looking after these people and why does it seem like they’re losing their way?’.

    ‘I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus, and I said to my daughter the other day, ‘I’m this close to opening my mouth about what’s going on with that girl’,’ she continued. ‘Who is actually saying, ‘Stop for a second, what do you want, who are you?’

    ‘I’ve just been very lucky that I’ve always been quite comfortable with who I am. Sometimes people ask, ‘What do you wish for your children?’ and all I say is, ‘I want them to be happy being them.’

    Turning the blame over to the industry, she said: ‘It’s really rough now. I think, for young actors, actresses and pop stars, it’s a nightmare. They can’t do anything. I’m so not going near that whole world – I don’t need it. I do feel incredibly lucky.”

    The Oscar-winning actress went on to talk about her marriage to Richard Brandon’s nephew, Ned Rocknroll, revealing: ‘People say to me, ‘You cook?’ and I’m like, ‘Who else is going to f****** cook?’

    ‘It’s funny, this notion that when you become a famous person, you stop doing normal things,’ admitted the mum-of-three, who lives in West Sussex with her family. ‘Maybe some people do, but I think I’d be so unhappy if I didn’t do it.

    ‘Ned is absolutely incredible and he looks after us all.’
