“I have done quite a bit of nudity, and I feel like my kids, they’re 8 and 5 now, maybe they’re going to start to become aware of the amount of nudity I’ve done. I just sort of feel like I can’t get away with it that much longer.” —Best Actress winner Kate Winslet (The Reader) [usmagazine.com, 2/24/09]

Is there an incredibly degree of duplicity or hypocrisy in this comment or is it just me? How can it be ok to appear nude or have sex in a movie until your own children watch you make love on the big screen? Is it ok that any other kid would see that? If all of a sudden it is inappropriate for her to appear nude because she is now aware that this isn’t the best thing for children, shouldn’t she apologize to her audience for poor judgment all these years?
