Kate Winslet “couldn’t stop crying” when she recently reunited with Leonardo DiCaprio after three years apart.
The ‘Titanic’ stars have known each other since they shot the film in their early 20s, but they hadn’t crossed paths for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Kate admits it was an emotional moment. for meeting the 47-year-old actor again in Los Angeles.
She said: “I couldn’t stop crying. I’ve known him for half of my life.
“It’s not like I’m in New York or he’s in London and there’s been a chance to have dinner or have a coffee and catch up.
“We have not been able to leave our countries.
“Like so many friendships around the world, we missed each other because of COVID.
“He is my friend, my very close friend. We are bound for life.”
Earlier this year, the 46-year-old actress played Detective Sergeant Mare Sheehan in the crime drama “Mare of Easttown,” and the star is not sure if the series will return for a second series.
But if she were to reprise her role, Kate believes some of the content for the second season should draw inspiration from some of the recent police “atrocities” in the UK and US.
She added to The Guardian newspaper: “I don’t know if I’m going to play Mare again.
“But if we were to do a second season, then for sure those atrocities that have existed in law enforcement here and in America will end up in the stories we tell.
“You can’t pretend these things didn’t happen. It’s horrible, isn’t it? This moment in time. It’s horrible.
“You can hear me, I can’t seem to find the words because we all feel so betrayed and helpless.
“We need to turn this moment into something meaningful. We need to use our voices on behalf of the people who don’t have them.
“It matters to me now in a way that hadn’t even crossed my mind when I was 20.”
In October, Kate admitted that she had had “conversations” about a potential second season of “Mare of Easttown”.
She said, “Honestly, I don’t have a clear answer. I mean, there have been conversations about it, of course, because the show’s success has really surprised us.
The seven-episode series followed small-town Pennsylvania Police Detective Mare, investigating reports of several young women missing as she battles her own personal issues.
