Yes it is true!! Kate Winslet and Allison Janney kissed on the stage of Hollywood Film Award after Kate won the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in Woody Allen’s latest film Wonder Wheel on Sunday, November 5.
During her acceptance speech, 42-year-old Winslet expressed that she felt honoured to be in the same room with such luminaries as Janney.
“I know I don’t really know you but I know I just want to be you. I do, or just stroke you or something. I mean, we could always kiss, maybe? Maybe?”
Janney then headed to the stage, prompting Winslet to remark: “Ah, it’s gonna happen! This is an exciting moment!”
And that it happened. They kissed, leaving the audience stunned.
"Thank you very much," Winslet said adding that she was a little bit breathless.
Janney, herself an honoree with the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for her performance in I, Tonya, gave Winslet a kiss before heading back to her seat.
