When English actress Kate Winslet welcomed her new son Bear last month, she was the subject of much public scrutiny. The 38-year-old faced backlash over her decision to have her son take her last name as opposed to husband Ned Rocknroll’s surname. She has been slammed in the press for having three children by three different men. But in an interview with Glamour UK, Winslet gave a backhanded apology to those who question her decisions.
“I’m really sorry to the nation’s press that I fell in love and got pregnant; I do apologize if you deem that irresponsible,” Winslet said according to People.
“No one has a right to comment on anyone’s life or the choices I do or don’t make. It’s very easy to be judgmental until you know someone’s truth. People have no idea at all,” Winslet said. “It baffles me, truly, that you can publicly treat a person like that. It’s not very nice.”
The mother of three, including daughter Mia, 13, and son Joe, 10, calls her family her “core” in the interview. Her new film Labor Day will be out in theaters Jan. 31.
