London, Feb 21 (ANI): Hollywood actress Kate Winslet, who has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best actress category for 'The Reader', has revealed that she is calming her nerves before the award ceremony by leading a normal life.
The 'Hamlet' actress, who has been nominated five times for an Academy award, but has never won any, says that she has been keeping herself busy by doing her household chores to beat the pre-Oscar anxiety.
"I have been doing all the normal things like making shepherd's pie and taking the kids to school," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
While Kate is pretty nervous about the award ceremony, she has been taking suggestions for her acceptance speech, if she wins.
But the sweetest advice came from her son, who just told her to keep it simple and utter her gratitude to everybody, who helped her reach here.
"'I think you should say thank you to everybody for helping me.' Which I thought was so sweet," Kate said about her son's advice.
Meanwhile, Kate has also said that she would like to wear something comfortable to the event, as she doesn't want to be in discomfort at the special moment.
"There's no way I could walk out of the door in something that was going to be digging into my waist and that was so super-figure-hugging-tight that you can't visit the lavatory in it. I just can't be doing with all that. It's like torture, and if you are in pain then you can't enjoy the moment," Kate said. (ANI)
