Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Awards, Casting, Celeb News,

Kate Winslet at the Golden Globes 2012Kate Winslet wants to play a man. The 36-year-old actress - who earlier this week won a Golden Globe for her performance in TV mini-series Mildred Pierce - is keen to take on a part of someone as the opposite gender, previously done by stars including Cate Blanchett and Glenn Close, because she believes it would be the "ultimate challenge."

"I would like to one day play a man. That is something that I do know. I don't know what kind of a man, I don't know whether it will ever happen, but I do know I would be really interested because I think that would probably be the ultimate challenge."

Kate has previously claimed she would love to take on the part of the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor - a role both Angelina Jolie and Lindsey Lohan have coveted - and admits the possibility is a massive undertaking: "It's a massive undertaking for anybody who should be fortunate enough to get that part."
