In 2021, Joe and Mia starred alongside their mom in the entirely improvised television show I Am Ruth.

"Luckily, they're good," she tells the outlet of her kids. "It felt normal [to act alongside them]. These are kids who have been testing [me] on [my] lines pretty much since they could read. They've seen me terrified beforehand. They've gone through it with me."

In 2017, the actress told Harper's Bazaar that she doesn't "have a chef or a driver or things like that" because she would rather take on those responsibilities on her own.

"I would be so unhappy if I had those things and I wouldn't feel like I was being a real person anymore," she said.

Winslet continued, "Just because I am in a position where I can have those things, it doesn't mean that I have to. It just wouldn't be right for my family — I know that my kids would absolutely hate it."

"I want them to look back and remember my chicken soup and my packed lunches and that it was me on the school run."
