British actress Kate Winslet has revealed she receives harsh criticism from Woody Allen when she's on set

Kate Winslet receives harsh criticism from Woody Allen when she's on set.

The 42-year-old actress is set to star in 'Wonder Wheel' alongside Justin Timberlake, but the blonde-haired beauty has revealed the 81-year-old filmmaker told her he was "bored" watching her act out scenes for the upcoming production, although the 'Titanic' icon didn't take the comments to heart.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, she said: "Woody has this way of standing up in the middle of a scene and stopping me and saying, 'No, no,no!' and I'd go, 'Okay, what?' and he'd say ... 'You know it's just ... I am so bored watching you.' I find that funny."

And Kate has claimed she is from the "school of hard knocks" and has become thick skinned to some remarks.

She explained: "I'm from the school of hard knocks so I can handle it - I don't mind honesty as long as he's not mean, which he never, ever is."

'The reader' star also revealed she has "always" been "strong and outspoken" and had no qualms about having an opinion.

Kate told HELLO! magazine: "I really like being me, actually. I've always been strong and outspoken and I intend to continue being so ... It's supported my life in many ways, both personally and professionally."

Kate tries to pass on her honest trait to her children Mia, 17, Joe, 13, and three-year-old Bear - who she has from three different relationships - because she thinks it is the "easiest thing" for kids to remember to do.

She said: "It's something I try to pass on to my children. I tell them, 'Be yourself and always tell the truth' because it's the easiest thing to remember."
