Queasy Kate Winslet's sick challenge delights kids

Monday September 5, 2011

Kate Winslet has revealed her children haven't forgotten about the day she had to pretend to be sick on set.

The actress has to be sick for her role in Roman Polanski's film Carnage and said her kids happened to be on set the day it was filmed.

Speaking at the Venice Film Festival, she recalled: "My kids came to work for the vomit day, and I am so thrilled that they were there because they literally have not stopped talking about it since. It was hysterical."

Based on the play by Yasmina Reza, The God Of Carnage tells a tale of civilized intentions going horribly awry as each character reveals their baser sides.

She plays a woman whose son is caught up in a playground scrap.

She and her husband visit the parents of the other lad involved played by John C. Reilly and Jodie Foster.

Kate's character is sick after eating apple and pear cobbler.

Her co-star John disputes that she had the toughest job.

"While Kate was the one who threw up, Jodie and I had to clean up the vomit, so we had the more disgusting involvement with the vomit," he said.
