Kate Winslet has divulged her love for Australian soap ‘Neighbours’ after confessing she used to pretend to be ill from school in order to catch actor Guy Pearce in the long-running show:

“When I was a teenager I had two heart-throbs in my whole teenage years; one was Patrick Swayze and the other was Guy Pearce,” she told the Radio Times. “And I was so in love with Mike from Neighbours that I’d actually fake illness to stay off school and watch the 1.25pm edition then the repeat at 5.30pm.

“So when I finally met Guy in the rehearsal room, I said, ‘OK, I’m just going to get this out of the way now, and you’re just going to have to bear with me. I was so in love with you as a teenager [laughs] and I was completely convinced that Mike was actually going to come and take me away on a white horse,’ and of course he was laughing his head off.”

The revelation comes after Kate’s recent time on set with Guy. The pair are about to hot our screens this weekend Mildred Pierce. Playing lead roles, Kate and Guy get it on!
