It seems like everyone has thrown in their two cents about Miley Cyrus these days, and now Kate Winslet is adding hers to the pile.
The Oscar-winning actress discussed the racy antics of the young pop star in a recent interview, telling Psychologies magazine that many of the fears she has in raising her own 13-year-old daughter have been brought out by Cyrus.
“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?’” Winslet told the magazine. “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.’ Who is actually saying [to Miley], ‘Stop for a second, what do you want, who are you?’”
Winslet blames much of young stars’ bad behavior these days on social media and the constant spotlight it provides (“It’s a nightmare,” she said), something the actress said she was lucky she didn’t have to worry about when she was at the height of her fame after starring in 1997 blockbuster “Titantic.” She credits having a good support system and a clear head on her shoulders with getting her through the craziness that fame brought to her life.
“I’ve just been very lucky that I’ve always been quite comfortable with who I am,” Winslet told Psychologies. “Sometimes people ask, ‘What do you wish for your children?’ and all I say is, ‘I want them to be happy being them.’”
