Winslet: Kids saw me vomit on set

Kate Winslet has revealed her children haven't forgotten about the day she had to projectile vomit on set.

The actress has to be sick for her role in Roman Polanski's film Carnage, about two sets of warring parents, and said her kids happened to be on set the day it was filmed.

Speaking at the Venice Film Festival, she recalled: "My kids came to work for the vomit day, and I am so thrilled that they were there because they literally have not stopped talking about it since. It was hysterical."

Based on the play by Yasmina Reza, The God Of Carnage, the film is a sort of Lord Of The Flies for the adult set - where civilized intentions go horribly awry as each character reveals their baser sides.

The satire packed with comic moments stars Kate and Christoph Waltz as husband and wife Nancy and Alan, appearing opposite Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly as Penelope and Michael - two sets of parents who meet to sort out the details of a playground fight that left one of the boys with swollen lips and broken teeth.

Though the stunt required Kate to operate a complex apparatus, John disputes that she had the toughest job.

"While Kate was the one who threw up, Jodie and I had to clean up the vomit, so we had the more disgusting involvement with the vomit," he said.
