When the Titanic star was asked to drape herself over a luxuriant fur rug for a provocative glossy magazine photoshoot, she was quick to seek reassurances that it was made from artificial fibres.
But now the magazine, Vanity Fair, has been forced to apologise after admitting that the actress had been misled and that the throw was really genuine fox fur.
Asked if Miss Winslet had been misled, her spokeswoman said: ‘That’s correct. She thought it was false. There was apparently false fur there and real fur there, and she definitely understood it was false.
‘Kate never wears fur. She’s very, very furm on that.’ A Vanity Fair spokeswoman confurmed: ‘Although there were both real and fake furs on set, the fur used in the photograph is real. We thought Miss Winslet was aware of this and we’re sorry for the miscommunication. (Daily Mail)
BTW, Kate. I dream about Catherine Deneuve, and you're no Catherine Deneuve... not even Catherine Deneuve at the age of sixty-five.
