Kate Winslet Cancels Out of Autism Premiere

by

The big draw for tonight’s premiere of HBO’s A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism was the little lady who did the narration–someone by the name of Kate Winslet.

Several journalists I know were planning to go in hopes of cornering Kate to ask her, not about autism, but about her upcoming HBO version of Mildred Pierce and whether she’ll wear shoulder pads.

Well, I just got an updated tip sheet for the event and Winslet is no longer on the “expected to attend” list, unsurprisingly enough.

As you may have read, she just had a messy falling out with her husband, Sam Mendes, and has taken the revolutionary road to splitsville.

Like another Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock, Katie’s apparently in no mood for premieres right now.

Dreadfully recherche, n’est-ce pas?
