While talking to Entertainment Tonight on the Gala’s red carpet the actress who looked dazzling in a shimmering green outfit revealed her high fascination with the James Cameron film.
“I [got] the double box set from Toys R’ Us,” Gladstone tells the interviewer at the Palm Springs Convention Center. “I got on the list early. I was in sixth grade, lived about two miles away from the Toys R’ Us. Mom was at work. Dad was at work, so I walked myself over… I’ve said this before. I made that walk for Kate. Leo did great in the film, but I made that walk for Kate Winslet.”
Moreover, the Academy winner shared an ugly part of history in the Martin Scorsese movie, Killers of the Flower Moon, where Leo played Ernest Burkhart while Gladstone played his wife, Mollie Burkhart, in the film, who were involved in real-life contract killings of several members of the Osage Nation.
