How Eternal Sunshine changed Kate Winslet's career

This is a bit of a fluff piece, really, but Kate's fans might be interested in The Things' write-up on how Eternal Sunshine opened people's minds to the kinds of roles she could play.

“[Kate] got the part because I’d interviewed all the most famous actresses of the time – because Charlie Kaufman’s script was very good – and she was the only one to give any negative comments on it. Basically, she was the only one not licking my ---,” Gondry said in an interview with The Daily Beast on the 10th anniversary of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Gondry went ahead to explain the elements that didn’t sit well with Winslet in the script, saying: “She said that it was a little bit repetitive in some places, and we shouldn’t shy away from being more sentimental.”

[...] “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was the biggest turning point for me because that was when people stopped seeing me as the ‘English rose in a corset’ from an industry perspective. People saw that I was capable of other dimensions,” said Winslet. (Source)
