All About Kate Winslet’s Daughter, Mia Honey Threapleton

Kate Winslet’s daughter, Mia Honey Threapleton, is following in her acting footsteps.

The Holiday star welcomed her first child in October 2000 with then-husband, film director Jim Threapleton. Over the years, Winslet has opened up about motherhood, including how much she enjoys spending time with Mia. “I love being a mum,” she told Metro in 2008.

Winslet has also made sure her daughter is comfortable in her own skin and started setting the groundwork for body positivity at a young age.

“I’ve just started subtly telling Mia, ‘I love my belly. … I’m proud of my belly and I’m proud of my hips. I love my body.’ ” she told WENN in 2007. “I want to give something to her that is empowering so when she comes into her teenage years she feels confident in herself.”

Though Mia is all grown up now, Winslet still spends quality time with her. In 2021, she stepped away from work for a year to hang out with her children. (The actress also has two sons, Joe and Bear.)

“I took last year off to be with my family and to recover from Mare of Easttown,” she told Variety. “It was good to have a bit of a reset.”

Meanwhile, Mia’s acting career is just ramping up. The burgeoning actress was featured in The Buccaneers, Dangerous Liaisons and even got to work alongside her mom in I Am Ruth.

Here’s everything to know about Kate Winslet’s daughter, Mia Threapleton.

She was born in October 2000

Winslet became a mom for the first time when she welcomed daughter Mia with then-husband Threapleton on Oct. 12, 2000.

Winslet’s agent shared the exciting news with ABC, and included a story about how the couple picked their baby girl’s name.

“Kate and Jim had drawn up a list of 10 names but when the baby was born, none of them seemed right,” agent Robert Garlock said at the time. “Then ‘Mia’ came to them and it seemed just right. There is no family significance, they just thought it was a really beautiful name.”

When Mia was 1 year old, Winslet and Threapleton divorced after three years of marriage in December 2001, per The Irish Times. Despite going their separate ways, the actress and director seemed to be on good terms and were spotted picking Mia up from school together.

While the Titanic star has continued navigating Hollywood and earning praise for her different projects, she also tried her best to be a hands-on mom. In 2017, she told Harper’s Bazaar that she didn’t “have a chef or a driver or things like that” because she would rather do it herself.

“I would be so unhappy if I had those things and I wouldn’t feel like I was being a real person anymore,” she explained. “It just wouldn’t be right for my family — I know that my kids would absolutely hate it.”

Winslet added, “I want them to look back and remember my chicken soup and my packed lunches and that it was me on the school run.”

As for work, she brought Mia and her siblings along and ensured they were content. “When I travel for work I try and bring them with me but they rarely come on set,” she told The Sun-Herald. “I would never drag them along and leave them in a trailer with a box of crayons waiting for mummy.”

Winslet always “suspected” her daughter would act, and she was right. “She’s away now in the Czech Republic about to start on a TV series over there,” she said on Lorraine in 2021.

According to the Divergent star, Mia’s different last name helped her build a career separate from her mom’s.

“She slipped under the radar, and the people who cast her had absolutely no idea that she was my daughter,” Winslet said. “That was important for her self-esteem.”

Mia began acting when she appeared in A Little Chaos at age 14. She went on to work on Shadows and Dangerous Liaisons.

“I never actually spent much time around sets that my mum was working on,” she told Variety after working on Shadows. “It’s a very different experience when it is happening to you.”

Mia continued, “I really understand why my mum has always impressed on us how hard the work is. She is right! And I loved every second of it.”

Mia and Winslet starred together in an award-winning project

In 2022, Mia put her acting skills to the test alongside her mom in I Am Ruth from the Channel 4 I Am… anthology series. Shortly after, Winslet revealed that she was “blown away” by Mia’s performance, and that she “didn’t need my help at all.”

“Sometimes I could introduce her to a technical trick here and there,” she told BBC One’s Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg. “Just little things I picked up along the way, like changing an eye line … Little things like that, that no one teaches you. And she appreciated that stuff.”

The following year, at the BAFTA Awards, the mother-daughter duo walked the red carpet together, and during the event, Winslet won best actress while the project earned the best single drama.

Mia has four younger siblings

Mia has a big, blended family and four siblings from her parents’ subsequent marriages.

Threapleton wed Julie Vuorinen in 2008, and they welcomed their daughter Olivia. According to The Telegraph, Winslet was “delighted” to hear their personal news. Threapleton and Vuorinen also have a second daughter, Georgia.

Meanwhile, Winslet went on to welcome son Joe Alfie in 2003 with now-ex Sam Mendes and son Bear Blaze in 2013 with husband Edward Abel Smith.

Mia quickly took to being a big sister, and even helped her mom out with her little brothers.

“[Mia is] incredibly helpful to me as a woman,” she told PEOPLE. “I’ll say to her, ‘Mims, can you please have Bear for the next hour? I’m just gonna grab a shower and I got a couple things I got to do.’ She’s like, ‘Yep, sure!’ “

“It’s really special in terms of, that’s what families are about,” Winslet continued. “Children should play with each other and look after each other. That’s really what we have and it’s very special and something that I never could have anticipated.”

Mia’s favorite Winslet movie is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Winslet has starred in numerous notable films, but one stands out from the rest for her daughter.

“Mia and Joe love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Love [it], and love the soundtrack,” she told PEOPLE in December 2022. “So regularly, I’ll hear from someone’s bedroom, Beck blasting. I’ll be like, ‘That’s Eternal Sunshine.’ So that’s kind of amazing.”
