Ray Winstone’s ‘father-daughter instinct’

Ray Winstone says his actress daughter Jaime has banned him from watching her sexy films.

The Edge of Darkness actor shares three daughters with his wife of 34 years Elaine.

His middle child Jaime has appeared in explicit films such as Donkey Punch and Kidulthood, but Ray confesses those movies are hard to sit through.

“When I watched it I wanted to kill every guy in the film. I did,” he explained to British newspaper The Mirror, noting Jaime, 28, has banned him from watching her kinky scenes.

“She’s my baby, you know? Of course you stand back and you think this is what you do as an actor. I’ve done very violent scenes. I’ve been naked in films. It’s just what you do. But there’s a strong father-daughter instinct there. I’m a little more chilled about it now though.

"Well, on the exterior anyway.”

Ray described his brood as “just a normal, lucky family”.

And the highly respected actor would like to spend as much time with his loved ones as possible at this stage in his life.

“I’ve worked in theatre. I’ve done stuff at the National Theatre, I’ve worked at the Royal Court, the Donmar Warehouse, I’ve done it all. But I’m 56 and enjoying life,” he explained.

"I’m not saying I’ll never go back but to spend five or six weeks doing a play now for a bar of soap and a bowl of rice, I have no interest in it.”

Ray is currently filming biblical epic Noah opposite Emma Watson and Russell Crowe.
