Danny Boyle hails Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet "would fix everything" on the set of 'Steve Jobs', according to director Danny Boyle.
The British filmmaker admits he couldn't have coped without the Oscar winner's support on the set of the new movie, in which she plays the late Apple co-founder's right-hand woman and marketing executive Joanna Hoffman, because she was always on hand to fix any problems.
He told PEOPLE magazine: "Kate is a wonderful partner on a film. She would fix everything - you know, extras, any problem, even people crying.
"She's hilarious and fun to hang out with. And she is not afraid to offer her input into a situation."
The 40-year-old actress' co-star Seth Rogen also appreciated having her on the set.
He explained: "She's hilarious ad fun to hang out with. And she is not afraid to offer her input into a situation."
But Kate, who has three children, Mia, 15, Joe, 11, and 22-month-old Bear, insists she tried not to interfere too much.
She said: "I don't go around sort of mothering everyone, but I make it my job to find out exactly what's going on all the time."
