Kate Winslet planning risky career move

Kate Winslet is planning to ''take some serious risks'' with her career.

The 'Divergent' actress is ready to return to acting just five months after giving birth to her third child, Bear, and is planning to seriously challenge herself with the roles she takes on.

She told Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''It's time to get back. Back to the 'I don't f**k around,' back to the basics of take some serious risks, put yourself out there. And just really push it.''

Kate has Bear with her husband Ned Rocknroll, but also raises Mia, 13, from her marriage to Jim Threapleton and Joe, 10, who she has with second husband Sam Mendes, and says her busy life as a mother doesn't always allow her time for pampering.

She said: ''I know it sounds very self-effacing because people say, 'Oh, you're a film star. People probably come to your house to [pamper you].' But I don't have the time to get my nails done apart from when I'm doing a photo shoot.''

The 38-year-old star also talked the fateful day when she met Ned, when his uncle, Sir Richard Branson's, mansion caught fire on Necker Island in the Caribbean.

She explained: ''We really could have died, the house burned to the ground.''

Kate saved Richard's mother, Eve, from the fire, explaining: ''I carried her out of the house and down some very slippery stone steps. Lucky she's tiny.

''She's my son's great-grandmother now, so it's such a strange thing to talk about.''
