Ever wondered who our favourite celebrities look up to? Who are our role model’s role models? Kate Winslet has shared the six women she is inspired by.

“All of these women have taught me about determination, strength and stamina, being properly prepared to play a role, but most importantly and above all else, about looking out for one another,” she said in a recent award acceptance. “It’s through these women that I have learned about sisterhood in the working world, which today could not be more crucial. Indeed, we must depend on it,” Town & Country reports.

Kathy Bates: “Kathy Bates taught me about trying out a scene in a way that I really had not planned at all.”
