British actress Kate Winslet got judges steamed up at this year's (05) Venice Film Festival with dirty talk in her new film ROMANCE AND CIGARETTES.

The film's director JAMES TARTURRO admitted this week (begs05SEP05) that TITANIC star Winslet is very talented at using sexy words.

Tarturro says, "There's dirty language of a certain kind and there's a real art to that."

Despite her more respectable roles in Finding Neverland and Sense And Sensibility, her character in ROMANCE AND CIGARETTES is full of raunchy moments.

Tarturro reveals, "There were things that had to be cut out that Kate said, that were just too dirty for the film."
