Kate's children refer to close friend Leonardo DiCaprio as "Uncle Leo".

Kate about Leo:

"Two incredible men who are such special people in my world.
And Leo I am so happy that I can stand here and tell you how much I love you and how much I've loved you for 13 years.
And your performance in this film is nothing short of spectacular.
I love you with all of my heart. I really do."

"He's brilliant. At first, I thought, 'Oh, is he going to be Hollywood stud-like?'
But he's a really kind, wonderful person.
He said to me one day early in the making of the movie, 'You know, I was kind of worried about you'.
He thought I was going to be a perfect skin, which I am certainly not.
It didn't take long for Leo to crack and see who I really am, and we became very close.
But, I must say, he is absolutely gorgeous."

"I love him dearly.
I bullied him into doing the movie, because it takes a long time for him to make decisions.
He likes to be advised by all his close friends and family, which was terribly frustrating for me because, with me, it's always gut feeling.
We became such good friends, so close, absolutely like brother and sister.
We've talked about everything.
We've laid our souls out on a slab to each other, in one way or another."

"Before we met, I thought, 'I'm just going to fall completely in love with this guy'.
Once I met him, I thought, 'Well, it's true. Leonardo DiCaprio is incredibly beautiful, but no way'.
He's just so normal and so — what's the word I'm looking for? — fundamental. Very chatty and so funny that we laughed and joked around.
Everybody kept saying, 'God, you two just get on so well'.
Leo and I sometimes still talk about it and say, 'Oh, should we have an affair just for the hell of it?'
But we wind up agreeing, 'No, we couldn't, because we'd laugh too much'.
We just wouldn't be able to take it seriously."

"There were days when I would say, 'God, I can't be without Leo'.
He was my rock.
We were such a team, nothing could break us, nothing could come near us."

"Working with Leonardo DiCaprio — he's a bit gorgeous, and I was worried that he was going to find me all stuffy and Shakespearean and English.
But the second we met, we just completely clicked.
We'd do the most ridiculous things to each other.
He'd be tickling me, groping me, winding me up.
And I'd be doing the same thing back, sort of grabbing his bum."

"He's probably the world's most beautiful looking man, yet he doesn't think he's that gorgeous.
And to me, he's just smelly, farty Leo."

"He is a great kisser.
There's a scene that's been cut out of Titanic where we're running through the ship's boiler room and we have this big kiss.
It was eight o'clock in the morning and neither of us felt like doing it.
We found ourselves doing the scene and we were at it and there was this look that passed between us for a second that sort of said:
"Um, not bad for eight o'clock in the morning when you feel you're about to die from overtiredness."

"Leo's my playmate.
When we were filming, the ship's railing starts to shake, and you just think, "If this railing goes, I'm a goner".
I turned to Leo and said, "I want to have a baby".
And he said, "Oh, shut up". I said, "Well, I do". And he said, "Now?"

"Leo and I just hung on to each other for dear life.
We had cigarettes hidden in the pockets of our costumes and the two of us literally were having conversations like
,'What would happen if we died?' and I'd say things like 'Leo, I love you, I really do love you so much.
You are a very important person to me and I'd have your babies.
I would, I'd have your babies, really, it's fine."

"He’s adorable, kind, always smiling.
Thank goodness we didn’t have any love affair:
with him I have the most beautiful and important relationship in the show business.
I’m proud of him. I’m proud of how he’s trying to focus the attention of the world on the ecology problems.
You don’t know how many things he knows about this.
He’s able to tell you how many watts a bulb burns if you let it on one hour more."

"No one makes me laugh like Leo. No one."

"I hadn't realized how much my chemistry with him since Titanic would still stick."

On her 11-size feet: “I’m glad I’ve got big, huge flappers.
Leo and I used to swap shoes all the time because we have the same size feet.
(…) I’ve got big, huge toes, too (…) They’re extraordinary. Absolutely massive.”

"He's just Leo, and always will be," she says simply.
"We actually lost touch with each other at one point for about four or five years.
There was no reason for it - we just lost each other's phone numbers and time went by as it does.
And then something wonderful happened on my birthday - out of the blue, I received a beautiful arrangement of flowers with a note inside saying,
'I just remembered it was your birthday and wanted to say I miss you.'
It was from Leo, and of course I called him, and we've been in touch regularly ever since.

We don't always get to see each other as much as we'd like to because we both travel a lot, but we're always talking on the phone.
He's a very special person in my life. I love him."

Well me and Leo (DiCaprio) are very good friends.
He adores my children but the problem is he spoils them rotten.
I mean Mia is 4 years old and she's a megalomaniac.
She says she wants to be an actress,singer and god knows what else.
And if you ask her why she thinks she can do all that she's gonna tell you "Uncle Leo says I can" and that's it for her.
Can you imagine taking a 3 year old kid to FAO Schwartz and tell her "Take everything you want and uncle Leo is gonna buy you that?"
Well Leo did exactly this last Christmas, Mia was overjoyed.
She thought Leo was Santa Claus.
You know I try to teach her material things are not important and there comes uncle Leo with the newest model of a doll's house (she laughs)

“Leo and I are kindred spirits —
we’re cut from the same cloth,”

[FONT="Georgia"]Leo about Kate:

"She was my best friend for seven months.
We'd unload the stresses of the shoot to each other, vent to each other, watch out for each other.
Kate was just the perfect person to work with because she was very much one of the guys, and it would have been much harder without her.
We were partners."

"There were times when I was in tears.
It was the toughest shoot, lasting for six or seven months, and Kate Winslet and I were both driven very hard in a lot of difficult water scenes.
There was no point in complaining.
We were filming in a giant tank in Mexico and the film was costing a fortune,
so all the complaining in the world was done in privacy, with just the two of us.
We did not have to vent it on anyone else. Sometimes Kate was in tears, other times I was, and occasionally we both were.
It was that kind of job. But Kate is awesome.
She is beautiful, tremendously talented and is really down to earth.
I don't think England realizes what a treasure she is."

"It's a real sort of actor's piece and I was really happy to do it with Kate again,
who is one of my dear friends and such a great actress."

On co-star Winslet, who has five Oscar nominations without a win, DiCaprio is clear, though.
"I can tell you," he said, "I'll be voting for her."

“Have you ever thought about my responsibilities?”
Anyway. This movie has you again co-starring with Kate Winslet.
How much has your working relationship changed?

It felt like no time had passed in the way that we’re so comfortable with each other personally and professionally.
We’ve been friends for such a long time, and we knew what boundaries we have with
each other professionally, and we knew that we could get great stuff out of each other.
She’s one of my best friends.
But was this different?
It was, in that we were a part of every nuance of this movie.
There was a different level of intimacy.
It was a much more hands-on approach, and we were both more responsible for our characters and the tone of the film.
That’s just something that comes with age and experience. After all, we were barely 20, 21 years old in Titanic."

"Kate seemed very nervous," recalls Leo with a smile.
"She kept on saying, 'This feels so weird.' I just told her, 'It doesn't feel weird to me - it's only acting.'
"Then Sam broke the tension by telling me how and where to hold Kate's bottom.
He said, 'Put your hand here,' showing me the position.
"After that, Kate just went for it, like the great actress she is.
I can't think of anyone in the world of her generation who is better."

"We only had each other and confided our feelings.
It was never more than a close friendship - and that has lasted right up to today.

"Kate became one of my best friends and we've always been in touch.
If we've not had a chance to meet, then we email each other."

"When I had the chance to work with her again on Revolutionary Road, I didn't have to think twice."

"I can't imagine anyone I would sooner act with, pretending to have a marriage which is going nowhere," Leo continues.
"The great thing about Kate is she can act a scene with such strength and conviction and you think,
'My God, she is really mad at me.'
Then, the moment the scene is over, she goes back to being Kate.
That takes a special talent and it's why she is so much in demand."

"Kate Winslet is one of my dearest friends.
We have the ultimate trust in each other and the best of intentions for what we want to do.
I knew Kate before Sam [Mendes, her husband] even met her.
So on the outside, it may seem strange to do a sex scene with a woman while her husband is directing.
it didn't feel that way to me."

“We’re like one of those old couples from When Harry Met Sally,” added Leo.

Speaking of your private life, do you ever look at Kate and just think,
''Damn, she's the one who got away.''
[They look at each other and burst out laughing.]
WINSLET: Say it!
DICAPRIO: [With a weary groan] We've always been completely platonic.

Here's the english translation of a 2008 greek article I found about Kate.

Sweet Lady Kate

About a month ago, everyone believed the star of December would be Nicole Kidman. Coming back to the director that showed her the road to the Oscars for the first time ( «Moulin Rouge») and with an astronomic begroting, an 8-month shooting and heavenly ambitions, «Australia» seemed like the ideal cinematic train, that would bring her back to success. But, she travelled back home with the dress of the star in her luggage and she forgot the recipe of the right actress in America. By bringing to life sympathetic roles in front of the camera of a Buzz Lurhman (sorry if I spell it wrong), who yet hasn't decided what kind of film he would like to shoot (he wrote six endings and shot only three of them!) she ended up starring in a new "Pride and Prejudice" rather than being the leading actress to a "remake" of "Gone With The Wind".
December, as well as the entire 2008, undoubtely belong to Kate Winslet. Brave as no one else, the 33 year-old British actress found herself at the age of 20 in the hands of glory (BAFTA Award for "Sense and Sensibility") and at the age of 22 with the entire world being hers. After "Titanic", she also starred in other blockbuster films, such as "Hideous Kinky" and "Holy Smoke". With the films "The Reader" and "Revolutionary Road" she now proves, twice, that each role is an unpredictable journey to discovering yourself.
How different is the way she walks in the dresses of Sam Mendes' film, than the way she gets naked in "The Reader"... How willing she is to open her heart in one film and how she makes us see sadness drawn in her eyes on another...
Her eyes, her body, her clothes, her lines, her silences, her co-stars... There's nothing Winslet can't use, nothing that, by touching it, doesn't automatically give voice and meaning to it.
An Oscar would be the smallest honor for the greatest actress of our time!

I already know my fave Kate movie list but Leo I have to think about. When I actually get around to Inception, it might be up there.

The OP is gorgeous. I love all the artwork and quotes.
