Kate Winslet will star in three films in the next six months. Steve Jobs, The Dressmaker, and Tripe 9 will all highlight the beautiful leading lady who, despite turning 40 this coming Monday, still boasts a great deal of sex appeal.

Winslets says she welcomes 40. In fact, she stars opposite Liam Hemsworth in The Dressmaker--playing his love interest. That alone makes 40 well worth celebrating. Her only negative thought about reaching the milestone birthday is that she can't "get rip-roaring drunk any more."

“I did say to Jocelyn [Moorhouse, the director], ‘Are we going to get away with this?’ And she said, ‘Yeah, yeah, he looks older than he is.’ Anyway, I don’t feel old. I feel excited about being 40,” she says of starring opposite the Hunger Games hottie.

“I feel like the past two years have been different for me, deliberately so,” she says in a recent interview for The Edit. “I really wanted to mix it up a bit, and feel that I was going full pelt towards 40 having done as much as I could: pushed myself, challenged myself, exhausted myself, had as much fun as possible. The last two years of my life have put a different sort of rocket fuel up my backside.”

Kate Winslet admits there are a few things she can no longer do--things she definitely enjoyed in her 20s.

“You can get away with a lot more in your twenties,” she admits. “You can get away with having one too many vodka tonics, and you can wake up in the morning and not have a puffy face. I couldn’t go out now and get rip-roaring drunk; I’d take a week to recover and I value my life too much. Plus, I have children.”

Winslet believes women become more beautiful as they age. She is proof positive of that.

“Confidence comes with age, and looking beautiful comes from the confidence someone has in themselves,” she says.

Will you be checking out the very sexy, very beautiful 40-year-old Kate Winslet in any of her upcoming films? Steve Jobs opens on October 23rd. The Dressmaker hits U.S. theaters on December 5th. Tripe 9 comes out in March of 2016.
