We already know Kate Winslet is adept at surviving fiery situations, but can she outlast Mother Nature under the tutelage of Bear Grylls? We’ll all find out come July when season 2 of NBC’s surprisingly entertaining survival reality series “Running Wild” kicks off.

The show, which last summer featured stars like Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum and Tom Arnold, will once feature Bear Grylls dragging some big name out to a remote part of the world to rough it for a few days. In addition to Academy Award-winner Winslet, we’ll also get time with Ed Helms, James Marsden, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Hudson, Michelle Rodriguez, and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. Locations revealed so far include the jungles of Panama, the Italian Alps and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Kate Winslet has been exploring the possibility of making her stage debut.

The Oscar—winning actress has spoken several times with David Hare, with a view to him directing her in his play “Skylight”.
The plan, at least on paper, is for Bill Nighy to star as Tom Sargeant (a role he played back in 1997), a famous restaurateur who meets a former mistress with whom he’d had an affair while his wife was still alive.

Kyra Hollis, the ex-lover who lives in self-exile in a garret studio, to atone for the illicit liaison, is the role Kate would take if the play goes ahead.
It’s a terrific drama. The original production, featuring Michael Gambon and Lia Williams, ran at the National and in the West End. It won an Olivier for best play, and later a stack of Tony awards on Broadway.

Kate has been contemplating doing the play for the past three or four months and has been attempting to clear her schedule at the end of this year and into next, in order to do it.
“She’s in love with the play and would very much like to do it,” a source connected to the production told me.

But I understand there are some obstacles of a private nature that would need to be sorted out before she can sign on the dotted line and officially commit. Also to be determined is whether the play would be produced here in London’s West End or on Broadway.
If Kate can sort her schedule out, then the play will happen. If she can’t, she won’t be treading the boards any time soon — which would be a great shame.
“It may change, and the way is clear for her to do ‘Skylight’, but there’s no 100 per cent guarantee,” a theater executive told me.
Kate has never made a secret of her desire to appear on the stage. Many years ago, she was going to work with Sam Mendes, back when he was artistic director of the Donmar.

After they married, there was more, tentative talk of him directing her on stage, but for various reasons it never happened.
At the moment, in between looking after her two children, Mia and Joe, Kate is preparing for the launch of the 3D version of her epic film Titanic on April 6.

Then she will shoot Jason Reitman’s film Labor Day, alongside Josh Brolin. The movie Guernsey (based on the bestseller “The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society”) — in which she had been due to star — has been put back for further development.

Kate Winslet will have a new forum to ignite our imagination — our ears! As a part of Audible.com’s series The A-List Collection, Winslet will lend her voice to Émile Zola’s “Thérèse Raquin”, a novel favorite by Kate in her teens. Winslet gives a sneak preview by explaining how she jumped at the challenge of narrating Zola’s “extraordinary love affair,” as the medium of sound allows her to tell a story that “sink[s] into your soul.”

Following her modeling gigs for beauty brand Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge lipstick and Trésor fragrance, Hollywood actress Kate Winslet is putting her relationship with Lancôme to a charitable use.

In aid of her charity, the Golden Hat Foundation, which helps improve the lives of autistic children, Winslet has released a small beauty collection, including the face-illuminating Poudre Lumière, a L’Absolu Rouge lipstick, and Mini Le Vernis, a range of smaller-sized nail polishes in red and pink. Prices range from $15 to $40.

Lancôme has said it will be donating at least 150,000 euros from the collection’s sales to the Golden Hat Foundation, whose logo is embossed in gold onto the products and packaging.

Some of the biggest stars in Hollywood are now finding a way to update some of their own favorite literature, and it simply has to do with lending their voices.

For their new line of upcoming audiobooks, Audible.com has announced that some of the following celebrities have offered up their voices to bring new life to some books that many mainstream audiences have abandoned over the years. For example, Nicole Kidman (who played Virginia Woolf in The Hours) will be reading the Woolf classic To The Lighthouse, while Kim Basinger is set to tackle the Kate Chopin classic The Awakening.

The first one of these new audiobooks will be released by the site early next year, and some of the other celebrities who are taking part include the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Kate Winslet, Meg Ryan, Naomi Watts, Colin Firth, and Dustin Hoffman. There are a number of Oscar nominations and trophies within this list, and the ultimate goal here is that it leads to an increased awareness in classic literature beyond just adaptations for the big screen.

As for what some of these stars are up to when it comes to their acting work, you can see Kate Winslet in Contagion, which is currently in theaters. Meanwhile, Hathaway has been busy shooting The Dark Knight Rises for much of the past several months.
