Kate Winslet doesn't think actresses should complain about juggling work and family because they are in a very "lucky" position
Kate Winslet has criticised actresses who complain about the difficulties of juggling work and home lives.
The 38-year-old star - who has children Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, from her previous marriages and Bear, 10 months, with husband Ned Rocknroll - insists people in the spotlight are in a very "lucky" position and they are no worse off than other working mothers.
She said: "We've heard a lot from actresses recently about how difficult it is. But we should never be saying that it's difficult because we are so bloody lucky. It's just not an OK thing to share. It's always a juggle, but isn't it for every working mother?"
The 'Divergent' actress says the thing she finds most difficult about being a working mother is making the "emotional jump" between two very different worlds.
She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: "The thing for me personally is that it is a difficult transition, is that my life at home is just so different to my life at work.
"It doesn't matter which of the two is harder, it's the emotional - rather than logistic - jump from one place to another that's difficult. The juggling of it all... we just get on with it. And we do, because we can."
