Video: Kate Winslet Talks About The Wii


Posted January 28, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

The folks at our sister cable network, E! speaks to many more famous movie stars than we do, but we have a lot more Star Wars figures decorating our cubicles, so it's a wash. Sometimes our two worlds collide, like matter meeting anti-matter -- except instead of a massive explosion that annihilates all life on earth, you get the below video of Kate Winslet talking about Wii Sports on the red carpet of the SAG awards.

Winslet says she was playing Wii Tennis with her son when she received the news that she had been nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Reader. "It is fantastic," Winslet says of the game. "But the boxing is the funniest thing of all, because you're boxing the air."

Now that Winslet has come out of the gaming closet, other celebrities are sure to follow. But that got me thinking:  What games do our favorite movie stars play?  Here's how I see it: If you saw The Wrestler, you already know that Mickey Rourke plays a 2nd tier wrestling game on a beat up NES. He probably does this in real life, too.  Also, I'll bet Lindsay Lohan plays Grand Theft Auto IV, whereas Nick Nolte looks like he lived through Fallout 3.
