Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce

"I've had a crush on Guy since I was 11 years old!" Kate Winslet told me backstage right after winning for Best Actress in Mildred Pierce.

But what about that bit about "insertion" from Guy Pearce during his own acceptance speech, I asked the very blond Winslet.

"I got to have sex with Kate Winslet many, many times and I didn't know it was going to result in this," Pearce joked during his acceptance speech. So was it too much for her?

"No, I was thrilled!," Winslet squealed in her tight red, revealing gown (and we don't think she had any double-stick tape, à la Julie Bowen).

I also asked the recent Oscar winner, who just posed in V magazine as Elizabeth Taylor, if she was up for portraying the screen legend on film, should a production come her way.

"I would be honored," she said, instantly. "In the same breath I would say yes."

I"m tellin you, Hollywood, get on this. She's perfect.
