Kate Winslet refused to let Mare of Easttown director edit 'belly' in sex scene

Kate Winslet refused to let the Mare of Easttown director edit a ‘bulgy bit of belly’ from one of the sex scenes.

The HBO and Sky drama wrapped up on Sunday night, with Erin McMenamin’s unlikely killer finally being revealed in a heartbreaking ending.

Kate, 45, starred as detective sergeant Mare Sheehan and has now revealed she was determined to make sure her character looked like a real middle-aged woman, and wouldn’t allow any photoshopping either on screen or in the promotional shots.

‘Listen, I hope that in playing Mare [Sheehan] as a middle-aged woman — I will be 46 in October — I guess that’s why people have connected with this character in the way that they have done because there are clearly no filters.’ she told New York Times.

‘She’s a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age and her life and where she comes from.

‘I think we’re starved of that a bit.’

Subsequently, when director Craig Zebel said he was going to edit her belly area, she hit back: ‘Don’t you dare!’

But the Titanic actress explained that her days of going nude on screen ‘are getting a little bit numbered’.

‘I’m just not that comfortable doing it anymore,’ she said. ‘It’s not even really an age thing, actually. There comes a point where people are going to go, “Oh, here she goes again.”’

Mare of Easttown ended after seven episodes on Sunday but seems unlikely to return for a season two.

Mare of Easttown Is available to stream on NOW.
