Kate Winslet is incredible in Insurgent, the latest in the Divergent film series.

Playing the villain is not easy as it is, but it was really hard for Kate Winslet to do the job in for the last movie because she was pregnant.

And Kate Winslet, no matter how famous or fabulous, is subject to pregnancy brain.

You know what I'm talking about, ladies.

Kate WInslet, 39, said, "It affects your ability to feel like you're not actually disappearing. I just didn't feel very together at all, physically or mentally. I don't have those great, strong, glowing pregnancies."

Winslet added, "It was really wonderful to be in a position where I did have my brain back."

It was also apparently wonderful for Kate Winslet to resume working with Shailene Woodley, who has become one of Hollywood's brightest young stars.

Kate Winslet said of Woodley, "She has values that are very, very important to her and she lives by them 100 percent. That is very unusual. I don't think I possessed to that extent."

Kate Winslet, who is famously private, stays away from media of all kinds. In fact, she reportedly goes to extremes to be sure there is very little media at all in her house.

She added, "It's how I've stayed sane. I don't read reviews. I don't read magazine articles that I've been in. I don't allow magazines into the home. I just don't."

Kate Winslet isn't the only one bragging on Shailene Woodley lately.

After the announcement that the Insurgent star would be honored this year with MTV's trailblazer award, President of MTV, Stephen Friedman, said, "Shailene Woodley is one of the most talented actresses of this generation."

He added, "Whether baring her soul in emotionally charged roles in The Descendants and The Fault in Our Stars or igniting our imagination in sci-fi blockbusters like Insurgent, Shailene has raised the bar for actresses navigating diverse and challenging roles professionally, while personally remaining down-to-earth and accessible to her fans."

What do you think about Kate Winslet's words about her pregnancies and her co-star, Shailene Woodley?
