Kate Winslet on Labor Day: No rehearsals, no problem

Oct 14 2013, 10:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

Kate Winslet felt confident without rehearsing for 'Labor Day'.

The Oscar-winning actress stars alongside Josh Brolin in acclaimed director Jason Reitman's new drama and she believes the filmmaker's decision to not rehearse scenes before filming - as he does on all of his films - really helped her relate to the story and her character.

She said: ''One thing Jason chooses to do is not rehearse. I think Jason was quite worried that I might be like, 'We have to have rehearsals!' But I don't care about rehearsals. I very much felt that Jason's choice to not rehearse lent itself particularly to 'Labor Day', because for us as actors, we genuinely didn't know what he was going to do next, what he would want of us as actors.

''I was always very grateful that we hadn't marked everything out, and although, we ourselves had done our own homework in knowing who we wanted our characters to be, nothing was revealed until each day [on set].''

Winslet plays a single mother who unwittingly takes in an escaped convict (Brolin) and gives him shelter, but her relationship with the man begins threatening her bond with her teenage son, played by Gattlin Griffith.

Speaking at a press conference for 'Labor Day', which will screen as the May Fair Hotel Gala film at this year's BFI London Film Festival tonight (14.10.13), the 38-year-old actress - who has two children, Mia 13, and Joe, nine - was full of praise for 14-year-old Griffith, admitting she was quite motherly on set.

The pregnant star said: ''It was one of the most wonderful working relationships I've ever had because it was honestly such a privilege to spend that amount of time with someone who's that lovely at that particular age, which is the most gorgeous age for a young girl or boy. Early on, my big thing to him was to say, 'You're terrified - don't worry, so am I, so is Josh, so is Jason, and so is everyone else.'

''I think I just knew I had to really be his friend and wanted to guide him. He was really my priority on set. When we did scenes together or when I could tell he really needed me, I was just there, really like a parent. Also, when he had done some particularly brilliant takes, I told him how impressed I was and how impressed everybody was.''
