Kate Winslet - Jason Reitman: Winslet is 'one of the greatest actresses'

Jason Reitman has praised Kate Winslet as ''one of the greatest actresses living today''.

The 'Labor Day' director decided to wait until the Oscar-winning British actress was ready to make their new drama rather than re-cast the part when Winslet decided she wanted a break from Hollywood.

Instead, the director shot 'Young Adult', which earned star Charlize Theron an Oscar nomination, while co-star Josh Brolin filmed 'Men in Black 3'.

Reitman recalled: ''Kate Winslet is one of the greatest actresses living today, and that there will ever be. If I've got a script that Kate Winslet is willing to say yes to, I will wait a year, I will wait five years.

''If Kate had said, 'Fuck this s**t', I would have found someone else. But, for the rest of my life, I get to say I directed Kate Winslet. It's huge.''

The drama features a salacious kitchen-based sex scene and Reitman has likened it to the infamous scene between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in 'Ghost'.

He told Empire magazine: ''I think it's the dirtiest sex scene I'll ever shoot. People have been comparing it to the 'Ghost' ceramics scene and I like that comparison because that scene was an inch away from being ridiculous but works. I think that's what we've achieved here.''
