British actress Kate Winslet says she would be OK if her son turned out gay.

The 35-year-old star who is best known for her leading role in the 1997 film Titanic told fashion glossy V that her son's sexuality isn't an issue for her.

“I want to be able to give my children as normal a life as possible,” she told the magazine. “They need to take the bus, the subway, muck around on the playground without having five paparazzi take their picture. I don't want those memories for them. I didn't sign up for that.”

Winslet has two children from two previous marriages: Mia Honey Threapleton, whose father is director Jim Threapleton, and Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, whose father is director Sam Mendes.

When asked if she has thought about an escape, Winslet answered: “I haven't. I don't want to be running and hiding. That's not me, that's not who I am. I like being in the city. I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day. I love the way their brains work. Joe turns to me the other day and says, 'One day, I will have a girlfriend. But I might have a boyfriend. If I'm gay.' He's 7! And I said, 'You might have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling.' And he said, 'Which would you prefer?' And I said, 'My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn't make any difference to me.' But that he knows! It's a real privilege. Talk about the best education.”
