Actress Kate Winslet “inspired” Xavier Dolan to become an actor. “I’ve been a fan from the first hour. Kate Winslet has inspired me to become an actor, a director, a costume designer ... she’s helped me to grow as an artist and as a human being in a way that she will never know. When I saw her in Titanic, I was eight years old.
“I saw the film and I was like, ‘Oooh, look at that.’ Big ideas, ambition, greater than life. It showed me that there were no limits to the things you could dream. I couldn’t believe the production design,” Dolan told Vulture.
And the Elephant Song star has credited Winslet as the “spokesperson of my teenage-hood” years, which has helped him to “define” who he is.
“But from the age of eight to 16, Kate Winslet was the spokesperson of my teenage-hood without ever knowing it. She’s been the face of my wildest artistic dreams. The way she walked, the way she talked ... she’s defined the person that I am in so many aspects. And I know that it’s extremely weird to be talking about this. Some artists do that to you. For me, it was her,” he said. n
