Kate Winslet, who is nominated for an Oscar for best actress in ”The Reader,” has been happy to take her clothes off for the sake of her art.
But those days may be over.
“I think I won’t do it again: a) I can’t keep getting away with it, and b) I don’t want to become ‘that actress who always gets her kit off,’” Winslet told Time magazine, in a profile that ran on its website on Thursday.
The comment comes the same day the Los Angeles Times ran an article looking at Winslet and fellow Oscar nominee Marisa Tomei, who plays a stripper in “The Wrestler” and who has also not been shy about shedding her clothes.
The LA Times wrote that, “Winslet would appear to have no equal among A-list actresses in her fearlessness about displaying her body.”
“Stretching from her career-making role in “Titanic” to “Iris” to 2006’s steamy “Little Children” — for each of which she received an Oscar nomination — Winslet has bared at least some skin in service to the film’s story,” the article said.
It appears to work for Winslet, 33, who has won six Oscar nominations in her career. On the set, Winslet appears to know exactly how to handle an awkward sex scene. She told Reuters that for “The Reader,” where she appeared nude with 18-year-old actor David Kross, she always knew where their bathrobes were and was quick to grab them after each film take.
With her acting ability, Winslet’s career will do just fine without nudity. But what will her fans think?

LOXAHATCHEE, FL (WFLX) - It's the 21st year the Mid-Winter Festival is underway at Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resorts in Loxahatchee. Hundreds of naturists from around the county have descended on the resort.
"I don't want to be forced to buy a new swim suit every year. I hate having to spend lots of money to buy fashionable clothes," said Claudia Kellersch who is visiting from San Diego.
The festival offers more than 260 workshops from arts and crafts to relationships, and it's all done in the nude.
"I'm feeling the air now all over my body; I can feel the sun all over," said Morley Schloss who owns Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort and developed the festival many years ago.
The festival is open to the public. You do not have to be a nudist to attend.

Today is World Nude Day (02/06/09), a day when the “birthday suit” is the only suit (too bad it’s raining in LA). Nudity for some can be scary, liberating, bold, embarrassing, and highly gratifying depending on who you are and the environment where you find yourself in “the buff”.
However, most would pass on the opportunity to prance around in the nude in a public place. Why so, we were all born with our clothes off and underneath it all we are all the same (sure some are a little more firm) but what’s the big deal?
No, I’m not a Nudist but I think the free spirited nature of the Nudist is quite admirable. To walk around in the nude is a testament toward your ability to be comfortable in your own skin and to love your body inside and out. Loving your body inside and out requires that you take care of it:
1. Eat Well – give your body only the best balance of protein, carbs and fats
2. Get Active – commit to a fitness routine that shapes, tones and defines
3. Get Sweaty – keep the heart healthy by incorporating cardio into your fitness regime
4. Appreciate Your Individuality – nude bodies come in all shapes and sizes but the nude body you should strive for is the one that is healthy. Healthy is always attractive.
Happy World Nude Day!
Take the time to enjoy a few moments in your birthday suit even if you take that moment in your shower.
