Kate Winslet’s wax figure is so good you can’t tell the difference

Look at the photo above. Which is the real Kate Winslet? I cut out the background and in my opinion you can hardly tell the difference, although the pose kind of gives it away. I also looked very closely at the wax version, and wax Kate has more wrinkles and lines than current Kate does.

One of our photo agencies, Pacific Coast News, titled this photo set “Dame Helen Mirren and Dame Judi Dench unveil the Kate Winslet waxwork at Madame Tussauds, London,” but guess what? Those are just wax figures of Helen and Judi too! They’re all part of the British actresses section. The wax Kate is wearing the same red Elie Saab dress with similar jewelry and the same hairstyle she had at the Emmys this year. This figure is perfection.

Unlike Helen Mirren, who delighted in posing next to her wax self last year and mock-scolding her husband when he kissed it, Kate didn’t attend the unveiling. She was probably too busy with Ned Rocknroll. IMDB doesn’t have her currently working on anything, although maybe she could be off doing a makeup, fashion or perfume ad, or supporting whatever job Ned has working for his billionaire uncle.

Here’s the real Kate Winslet again.

And here’s her wax version. Madame Tussauds is really spot on.

Dame Helen’s doppelganger is having a lot more fun. They really captured their personalities here.

    Oh please. The wax figure is what Kate would look like if she actually did get cosmetic work done! Did you see her on Graham Norton last month? Wrinkles galore. Her face is fine. And IMDb doesn’t have her working on anything because maybe she doesn’t work all the time? She has a family you know.

  2. Sara says:

    I think Kate is beautiful and a great actress!

  3. Pyewacket says:

    I am sure the wax figure is less pretentious and pontificating than the real one.

  4. Laura says:

    I looked closely at the pictures too. How does wax Kate have more wrinkles than real Kate? :|

  5. Quest says:

    OMG! That is so much like the real macoy. Really amazing

    LMAO at the comment: “wax Kate has more wrinkles”

  6. Fran says:

    Gotta agree with @NAD!!!
    Give her a break, people!

  7. constance says:

    Looks great. Channeling a Mariska Hargitay look to me, IMO.

  8. Cathy says:

    I like her better with red hair, like she had in Titanic

  9. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow…that’s gotta be the best wax figure of a celeb that I’ve seen.

    most of them look like the ugly brother/sister of the actual celeb, but this one is really good!

  10. rtms says:

    Wow, who ever sculpted that wax figure finally did a great job. Most of the time the figure looks like a mutant version of the person.

  11. gee says:

    Wax Hellen Mirren is better. I thought that was real life Hellen Mirren!

  12. Shelly says:

    Those wax figures are amazing! Best ones I’ve seen. The wax museums freak me the hell out though. I went to one by myself once, and I was literally looking behind me the whole time bc I would suddenly notice one that I hadn’t noticed just before and they all looked real, except real in some sort of strange horror movie way.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Wow, both Kate’s and Helen’s are really good!

  14. wunder says:

    This is one of the best wax figs by far, but the Mirren fig is even better. . . but this sh-t is creepy too. You can almost see the wax people moving out of the corner of your eye. . .

  15. Arianna says:

    i am baffled. i really wish i was this talented!

    all three of those gorgeous ladies are scarily impressive! bravo

  16. thethinker says:

    Celebitchy, would you like a bigger stick to stir with?

    Kate’s wax figure doesn’t look more lined than she does now.

  17. Ari says:

    The british wax figures have got to be the best ones I have seen. WoWIEEEEE! It kind of gives me the creeps ala body snatchers :L

  18. pinns says:

    Amazing! Pay rise and a pat on the back to the whoever created that one, they usually look totally guff (bad)!!

    Only tourists go to MT’s as it’s stupidly expensive to get in, you see gangs of French and Italian school kids hanging around outside looking fed up (“sacre bleu, how much did we just get ripped off??!!”)

  19. Turtle Dove says:

    All three look fabulous, but Helen’s is the best. They’ve captured her playful spirit.

  20. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t get how saying that the real version has a more youthful appearance than her wax doppelganger is an insult. Did I misinterpret something? I know her fans are plenty protective of her and can get a bit ‘animated’ when the subject of her face and figure arise, so I’m sure what the story is, here. At any rate, to my mind, Wax Kate trumps Flesh Kate in that it doesn’t talk. Oh, she’s talented, good-looking, seems reasonably intelligent and mercifully doesn’t inflict herself on the public through tawdry overexposure, but still…scraping through a warehouse filled with blocks of parmesan cheese would be far less grating than sitting through one of her interviews. Or, at least it would be for me. Oh, you can’t like everyone and if the counter-argument begins with, ‘Well, at least she isn’t–’ we will have officially arrived at the stalemate portion of the conversation.

    It is a good statue.

  21. ruby says:

    They chose great gowns for all three of them. I especially love Kate’s dress.

  22. Maritza says:

    The artist that did them is extremely talented, great job!

  23. werty says:

    OMG Those wax figures are freaking me out.
    They look real!!

  24. GoodCapon says:

    Is real Kate that tall? The wax figure towers (okay, a bit exaggerated) over the female retoucher!

    All wax figures are well done! Very nice.

  25. Adrien says:

    Whoa! Even more impressive are those Dame Judi and Helen Mirren statues on the sides. They look very real. Helen’s face is more animated than Kate’s, which looks kinda mannequinish in facial expression.

  26. ZenB!tch says:

    The wax figure’s facial skin is a young as it’s body skin.

    How old is Kate? She is getting the same weird thing I am getting – one eyebrow still looks botox high even though its natural but the other is falling. The eye on the side that is falling is also looking smaller due to early eyelid droop. I’m in my early 40s. I didn’t think Kate was even 35 at 35 both my brows looked botoxed (sniff).

    YES that is a nitpicky only someone with the same issue would catch it thing.

    PS: That wax artist is very talented she caught the eyebrow thing even if it’s not as obvious on the figure.

  27. dan says:

    amazing waxworking aside HOW long is kates little finger? look at the side by side. its super long in real life too. And Helens little finger looks long too. Celebitchy please research – do oscar winners have longer than average little fingers? We have a right to know!

    You’re all pathetically shallow. No one in the real world cares about Kate Winslet’s wrinkles.
