Kate Winslet regrets working with Woody Allen, Roman Polanski

It’s a tie between this and not moving over on that door.

Kate Winslet is reckoning with some of her past work in light of the #MeToo movement, telling Vanity Fair this week, “It’s like, what the f - - k was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski?”

“It’s unbelievable to me now how those men were held in such high regard, so widely in the film industry and for as long as they were,” she added. “It’s f - - king disgraceful.”

“And I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both,” Winslet continued. “I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be f - - king truthful about all of it?”

Winslet starred in Polanski’s 2011 adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s play “God of Carnage” — shortened to simply “Carnage” in theaters. She worked with Allen for 2017’s “Wonder Wheel,” a Coney Island-set 1950s drama.

Winslet’s comments were prompted by a question about the #MeToo movement. “Life is f - - king short and I’d like to do my best when it comes to setting a decent example to younger women,” she prefaced the Allen and Polanski comment by saying. “We’re handing them a pretty f - - ked up world, so I’d like to do my bit in having some proper integrity.”

Winslet would also like everyone to know that she’s aware streams of her Steven Soderbergh-directed 2011 thriller “Contagion” jumped up during the pandemic.

“What are they all f - - king doing?” she said. “It’s a scary film. Stop watching that.”

As for that door, Winslet addressed the long-debated ending of “Titanic” back in 2017, re-creating how she could have made room for Leonardo DiCaprio’s character, Jack, during an appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

“He should have tried harder to get on that door,” she said.
