Kate Winslet is envious of women who have "swishy" hair.

The Oscar-winning actress is known for her flawless red carpet looks and is often photographed with her blonde hair worn up.

She equally likes it when her locks are left loose, but 38-year-old Kate envies those who have more length than she does.

"I love wearing my hair down. It's too fluffy to wash and go and I wish the front bits were longer because then I could have long swishy hair, but you can't have everything," she said matter-of-factly to UK edition of Glamour magazine.

Kate shot to fame playing Rose DeWitt Bukater in 1996 blockbuster Titanic. As well as attracting the attention of film critics and movie goers, Kate's curly red hair for Rose also captured the audience's imagination.

All of Rose's hair was Kate's own and she is proud she didn't need a wig to play the character.

These days the award-winning actress leaves her hair decisions up to the professionals, but only on the condition they don't over style it.

"Hairdressers know better than I do, so I leave it to them as long as it's not too coiffed. I had a French braid in my hair recently for an event and I loved it.

"It was funny taking it out though - my husband, Ned, and I were over the sink trying to work out which bits were extensions and what was hair. I was cutting bits, saying 'Hang on, was that mine? Oops, I just cut my own hair,'" Kate laughed.
