Washington, February 25 (ANI): An anxiety-stricken Kate Winslet had a panic attack a month before the Academy Awards.
The 33-year-old finally won the gong, after five previous nominations, for her portrayal of a German woman with a secret Nazi past in the romantic drama “The Reader” this year.
The actress confessed making a desperate call to her sister after suffering the jitters.
“I didn”t know what it was. It was a little like when your water (breaks), and you think, ”Did I just pee a bit, or is this it?” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Time magazine.
“I called my sister and said, ”I can”t breathe, and I feel like I”ve got a brick on my chest and I”m seeing funny, and it sounds like everyone’’s talking to me in Hebrew.”
“She said, ”Yeah, that’’s a panic attack,”” she added. (ANI)
