Kate Winslet's Oscar is up for grabs – to anyone who visits her home.

Last year's Best Actress winner, for The Reader, keeps her golden statuette in the bathroom so guests "can sneakily have a little [hold] and put it back down again," she told the U.K. TV show GMTV on Monday.

Her reason for storing it there, she says, is "because basically everybody wants to touch it, everybody wants to hold it and go 'Oh, my gosh,' and 'How heavy is it?' So I figured if I put it [in there], then people can avoid the whole, 'Where's your Oscar?' thing."

Winslet, 34, also walked the red carpet at the annual BAFTA awards in London Sunday, and says she relishes the chance to dress up in award season.



“It's great to wear lovely dresses and to just experience those moments of dress up, especially as a mum, because," says the mother of two, "you get so few moments to feel good in your own skin and wear a lovely gown.

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be presented on Sunday, March 7, and televised live on ABC beginning at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET.
