Kate Winslet had three spine hematomas but worked through the injuries while filming her new movie.
Winslet told Vogue she slipped and hurt herself on the first day of filming "Lee."
"Lee" is a biographical drama about the war journalist, model, and photographer Lee Miller.
Kate Winslet experienced multiple back injuries while filming her new movie — but rather than delaying the schedule, the British actor persevered, continuing to work on set.
In an interview with Vogue, the "Titanic" star talked about her latest film "Lee," a biographical drama following war journalist, model, and photographer Lee Miller, who chronicled events such as the liberation of Paris and Buchenwald and Dachau concentration camps during World War II.
Winslet told Vogue that on the first day of filming, she slipped while rehearsing a scene and injured her back.
"I had three massive hematomas on my spine, huge," she told the publication in an interview that took place before the SAG-AFTRA strike. "I could barely stand up."
Rather than delaying filming, Winslet — also a co-producer — continued working a very intense schedule, balancing acting as the starring role, taking calls to secure the movie's funding, and going over lines and dialogue with her coach.
It was a jam-packed schedule, and others on-set noticed how hard the "Mare of Easttown" actor worked.
"Kate held the film in her," co-producer Kate Solomon told Vogue. "If you spoke to her about any aspect of it, she knew what her opinion was. And when you have that, you can galvanize everyone behind that person. It looks effortless, but having lived with her, you can say: My God, it is a lot of work to get to that point."
