Kate Winslet knows she's not married to Leonardo DiCaprio, right? I feel like someone might need to whisper a reminder in her ear before she goes into an interview from now on, because she recently opened up about her and Leo's relationship to People magazine, and she comes dangerously close to sounding like a teenage girl drawing hearts around his picture and writing “Kate DiCaprio” in her notebook.

Things start off purely platonic, with Kate praising what a great friend Leo has been over the years:

“He's a solid, loyal person. He's a great friend, he always has been, and not just to me, but to everyone around him. He still has friends he had when we made Titanic.”

Yeah, Pussy Posse 4 Lyfe, am I right? Models come and go, but you got to keep those bros by your side. Anyway, Kate goes on to talk about how much Leo has grown as a person, in terms of both talent and handsomeness:

“He's a stronger actor in this moment than he's ever been. I think he's more handsome than he's ever been. And he feels, to me, the most settled he's ever felt, in himself, right now, which is quite strange, really, given that there's a lot happening around him.”

You know, I was starting to feel bad for Kate that she gets so many questions about her friendship with Leo and her thoughts on his Oscar chances and LEO LEO LEO, especially considering she has her own Oscar nomination this year. But it's starting to sound like Leo is her favorite subject of conversation. I wouldn't be surprised if, in her next interview, out of the blue, she answers a question about Steve Jobs with, “Aren't Leo's eyes beautiful?”

I'll leave you with this parting comment about Leo's current state of mind:

“He's quite centered and calm, and that's different to the way he was 20 years ago.”

God, Kate, are you his therapist now? How much time are you even spending with him to gauge all of this? Go home to Ned Rocknroll.
