Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet: Pregnancy caused memory lapses

Kate Winslet thinks being pregnant destroyed her brain cells.

The 'Titanic' actress - who has children Mia, 13 , and Joe, 10, from previous marriages and son Bear, three months, with husband Ned Rocknroll - admits she suffered a lot of memory lapses when expecting her youngest child, but is slowly reacquiring the knowledge she lost.

Kate said: ''It's lovely actually having had the baby because now all my brain cells are coming back to me and I can remember things - like the films I once made!''

The 38-year-old beauty also admitted she hasn't had many sleepless nights since welcoming Bear into the world.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2, she said: ''The baby's wonderful, and actually at night he's a pretty good sleeper. He's not much of a day-time sleeper but he's very good at nights.''

The 'Divergent' actress has already shed the pounds she gained during her pregnancy, but insisted she hasn't deliberately done anything to lose weight, attributing it to ''Mother Nature''.

She said: ''She's been on my side this time.''

And the British beauty slammed the constant stigma around women's post pregnancy bodies.

She said: ''I think there's terrible pressure on women to lose baby weight. It's a really tricky subject actually because everyone's different.

''We shouldn't talk about it too much, it just adds to that whole debate.''
