Winslet said it was “wonderful” to be underwater for such a long period, even though she was aware of how dangerous it could be. She also learned to freedive with the help of her husband Ned for her role in the sequel to the 2009 hit film “You’ve got to have somebody there. Ned trained with me and managed to hold his breath pretty well. But he passed out, ”she assured.
Earlier this year Kate told the magazine observer: “It is wonderful. Your mind completely vanishes. You can’t think of anything, you can’t make lists in your head, you just look at the bubbles below you… My first words when I resurfaced were: ‘Am I dead?’ Yes, I thought she had died”.
She even broke the record for Tom Cruisewhich he shot underwater for six minutes in the movie “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation”. “It was brilliant and I was so proud of myself and I’ll probably never be able to do it again. That was at the end of four weeks of pretty intense training and it was in the scuba tank, in the training tank. But I loved it,” she concluded.
