Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet Lost Creativity After Award Win

Kate Winslet didn't feel creative after her Oscar win.

The British actress - who won the Best Actress Academy Award for her role in 'Revolutionary Road' in 2009 - took her time before picking her forthcoming project 'Mildred Pierce' because she didn't feel productive but think she has put in a better performance for waiting.

She said: "I just waited until the dust had settled and I was ready to engage with - it sounds so w**ky - my creative side again. In the last few years I've allowed myself to acknowledge the fact that I do really need my job. I need that outlet.

"And so, not only did I feel good and ready, I felt good and ready to be destroyed by a role again."

Despite now returning to work, 35-year-old Kate - who split with husband Sam Mendes last year - believes she is happier than ever, something she is "surprised" at.

She told Vogue magazine: "I actually keep saying it out loud. Last night, I went out for a drink with two friends, and as we were talking I said, 'God, you know, I feel so good.' Not in a, 'Wow! I feel so good!' way, but just in that quiet centred way.

"I'm almost surprised by it. I feel well. I feel healthy. I feel clear. I feel centred."
