“Titanic” star Kate Winslet has opened up about herself, finding her soulmate and the marital setbacks she’s endured over the years in the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar U.K.
“I’ve really learnt a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now -- about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am and the characters I have played -- and I’m grateful for that," the 37-year-old told the magazine.
Winslet surprised her fans and tabloids when she married Ned Rocknroll, the 34-year-old nephew of Virgin magnate Sir Richard Branson, in December.
This is the third marriage for the actress, who was previously married to “American Beauty” director Sam Mendes in 2010 and Jim Threapleton in 2001.
"I have so much more material to draw on for work -- rubble, bricks -- and I know I can carry it now. I’m not going to drop it, and if I do, I’ll sift through it. Does that make any sense at all? Probably not,” the Oscar-winning actress expressed during the interview.

Winslet has been candid about her personal life in the past, telling the same magazine in 2011 that her split from Mendes was “hard” but that she was ready to start a new chapter in her life.
"I feel that I'm just at the beginning of a new narrative and it's incredibly exciting," Winslet, who was already dating Rocknroll at the time, told Bazaar. "It's complicated, I know, and uncertain -- but it's where life happens, between the cracks. It can be a painful process, but I truly hope that never stops for me."
She also told Bitish Vogue she was enjoying solitude and learning how to regain her sense of self post-divorce.
“I actually keep saying it out loud. Last night I went out for a drink with two friends and, as we were walking, I said, ‘God, you know, I feel so good.’ Not in a, ‘Wow! I feel so good!’ way, but just in that quiet centered way. I’m almost surprised by it. I feel well, I feel healthy. I feel clear. I feel centered,” she said.
