While filming, an off-hand comment from the director Diarmuid Lawrence about the likeness between her and the actress who played her mother prompted Winslet to lose weight.In Michael Winterbottom's Jude, based on the novel Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy, she played Sue Bridehead, a young woman with suffragette leanings who falls in love with her cousin, Jude (played by Christopher Eccleston).Roger Ebert believed that the part allowed Winslet to display her acting range, and praised her for the defiance she brought to the role.She made her film debut playing a teenage murderess in Heavenly Creatures (1994), and received her first BAFTA Award for playing Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility (1995).Global stardom followed soon after with her leading role in the epic romance Titanic (1997).

She won a Primetime Emmy Award for the former and a third BAFTA Award for the latter.

For her narration of a short story in the audiobook Listen to the Storyteller (1999), Winslet won a Grammy Award.

In fact, Winslet says, she was there for a fundraiser. It was extraordinary.”The pictures showed Di Caprio, 42 and Winslet, 41, arm in arm, wearing swimsuits in the tropical French beachside town of Saint-Tropez. ”Di Caprio and Winslet first starred opposite each other in the Oscar-winning blockbuster, Titanic.

They played a troubled married couple in 2009’s Revolutionary Road, directed by Winslet’s ex-husband, Sam Mendes.

The director Ang Lee wanted Winslet to play the part with grace and restraint—aspects that he felt were missing from her performance in Heavenly Creatures—and thus asked her to practice tai chi, read gothic literature, and learn to play the piano.

David Parkinson of the Radio Times found Winslet to be a standout among the ensemble cast, and Mick La Salle of the San Francisco Chronicle took note of how well she had portrayed her character's growth and maturity.

The New Zealand-based production is based on the Parker–Hulme murder case of 1954, in which Winslet played Juliet Hulme, a teenager who assists her friend, Pauline Parker (played by Melanie Lynskey), in the murder of Pauline's mother.

She prepared for the part by reading the transcripts of the girls' murder trial, their letters and diaries, and interacted with their acquaintances.
