Kate Winslet is currently seen as a middle-aged woman in the HBO limited series ‘Mare of Easttown’ that premiered on April 18. The 45-year-old, who plays the role of a detective sergeant in Easttown, says that she wanted to realistically portray every aspect of her character without any filters.

“Listen, I hope that in playing Mare (Sheehan) as a middle-aged woman — I will be 46 in October — I guess that’s why people have connected with this character in the way that they have done because there are clearly no filters,” she told the New York Times in an interview published on Monday.

 “She’s a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age and her life and where she comes from. I think we’re starved of that a bit,” added the actor.

The Oscar winner also said she knows her “unglamorous” appearance in the series is jarring for viewers — and she didn’t want it any other way. In fact, when director Craig Zobel said he would cut “a bulgy bit of belly” in her sex scene, Winslet objected, saying “Don’t you dare!,” reports an article by the Times.

She said, “I think my days are getting a little bit numbered of doing nudity. I’m just not that comfortable doing it anymore. It’s not even really an age thing, actually. There comes a point where people are going to go, ‘Oh, here she goes again.'”

Last month, Winslet actress shared that she had to “stay very fit” to prepare for the role during an interview with emmy magazine.
