Wouldn’t we all rather see Kate than Nicole, anyway?!?!

Winslet subs for pregnant Kidman
If you need a pale, elegant actress over 30 who can mix strength and pathos, try Nicole Kidman. But what if she’s not available?
The producers of “The Reader” turned to Kate Winslet, who will be stepping into the role vacated by Kidman because of her pregnancy, reports People.
It all works out since Winslet was originally offered the role, but scheduling conflicts prevented her from taking it. Now, the timing has worked out like a charm.
The celebrity magazine reports that some scenes with Ralph Fiennes have already been filmed with the intention that Kidman, now Winslet, shoot hers starting next month.
“Reader” is Bernhard Schlink’s bestselling novel (and Oprah’s Book Club selection) that revolves around an affair between a teenage boy and an older woman (supposedly Winslet) in Germany. At first physical, their relationship becomes something a bit more tender, and after lovemaking, he would often read to her from the German classics. One day, she disappears, and he doesn’t see her until years later … when she’s on trial for Nazi war crimes.
Winslet, 32, has been nominated for her roles in “Little Children,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Iris,” “Titanic” and “Sense & Sensibility.” Her most recent films include “All the Kings Men,” “The Holiday” and the upcoming “Revolutionary Road” opposite her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.
