A heartwarming video of British actress Kate Winslet encouraging a child journalist has gone viral on social media. In the clip, which was made while the Titanic star was promoting Avatar 2: The Way of the Water, Winslet gives a pep talk to Martha, a child reporter for the German children’s program Logo! who is tasked with interviewing the 47-year-old actress.
“This is your first time doing it?” Winslet asked Martha at the top of the interview, shared by @soyszenrita on Twitter. “OK, well guess what? When we do this interview, it’s going to be the most amazing interview ever. And do you know why? Because we’ve decided that it is going to be. So we’ve decided right now, me and you, that this is going to be a really fantastic interview.”
Social media has been swamped with praise over Winslet’s empathetic response to the nervous young reporter. At the end of the conversation, Martha and Winslet took a photo together, which has also been shared on social media.
