I can tell when guest is ‘playing with Oscar’ : Kate Winslet

Winslet elaborated on her decision, “Because when everyone goes in for a wee or a poo, they can really take their time in front of the mirror with Oscar. You can always tell because they flush and then there's another five minutes…” It's obvious to her, she says, when a guest is “playing with Oscar”.

She added: "The whole idea is for everyone to pick it up and say, ‘I’d like to thank my son and my dad’ — and you can always tell when someone has, because they spend a little extra time in there after they flushed. They’ll come out looking slightly pink-cheeked. It’s hysterical.”

Winslet’s upcoming projects include a mini-series titled The Regime, on which the Titanic actress also serves as an executive producer.
