To which the star replies: “It’s your first time doing it? So we’ve decided right now, me and you, that this is going to be a fantastic interview.
“And you can ask me anything that you want, and you don’t have to be scared, everything is going to be amazing.
“Okay? You’ve got this! Okay, let’s do it!”
And it appeared as though Winslet’s motivational words put the young reporter straight at ease as she spent a few minutes speaking to her about her career and her work on the James Cameron movie.

“This is how to celebrity,” another viewer penned.
A third added: “I adore Kate Winslet on every level” while another echoed many social users sentiments, remarking: “She’s such a good person. I love Kate!”
