Oscar-winner Kate Winslet has admitted she doesn’t see her busy career as a job and prefers to look at it as a “holiday.”

The “Steve Jobs” star may be forced to spend months away from her three children to her globe-trotting career but she doesn’t see her gruelling schedule as work and would willingly get up at the crack of dawn to shoot a new movie if need be because she enjoys going on set, reported Female First.

“I really do love acting, and as I get older I find myself loving it more and more. I’m so struck by how long I’ve been doing this,” Winslet said.

“I suddenly feel like one of these people who’s been around a long time – and I have! … The great thing about acting is that every role brings different challenges and new mysteries. It’s like going on holiday; I love it. I do. I really do like getting up for work – even if it’s ten past three in the morning, which some of our calls on this film were.”

Despite having a catalogue of movies under her belt, the 40-year-old actress, who has a career spanning over 20 years, prefers to take on only one job a year. “In terms of being a workaholic, that’s not for me.

I like to think that I have this way of working which is to just do one thing a year, which often can take four or five months of my life.

But in the last couple of years, I seem to have found myself doing a heck of a lot more,” she said.
