    Kate Winslet Keeps Her Oscar In Her Bathroom So People Can Practice Their Own Acceptance Speeches

    Because she's the perfect human.

    After six Academy Award nominations, Kate Winslet finally won an Oscar in 2009 for Best Actress in The Reader.

    I'll never let go, Jack, she probably thought to herself.

    And in a recent WSJ Magazine interview, Winslet revealed where she keeps this precious, beloved item in her home: her bathroom.

    Why the bathroom, you wonder?

    Paramount Pictures

    Because the actor knows how much *everyone* wants to practice their own Oscar speeches, and what better prop to use than an ACTUAL Academy Award?!

    "The whole point is for everybody to pick it up and go, 'I'd like to thank my son and my dad'—and you can always tell when someone has, because they're in there a little bit longer after they flushed. They'll come out looking slightly pink-cheeked. It's hysterical."

    Stars — they're just like us.
