Family is more important for Kate Winslet

London: Actress Kate Winslet said her family life is much more important to her than acting.

Winslet, who has 12-year-old daughter Mia from her marriage to director Jim Threapleton, and son Joe with ex-husband Sam Mendes, a filmmaker, said she doesn`t struggle as much with balancing her career and family life.

"My greatest strength is my ability to bounce back. I`ve got a really over-packed brain, there`s always so much to do," quoted Winslet as saying.

"But my children are my life and acting is something that I just do sometimes," she said.

Last month Winslet insisted that the past four years including her split from Mendes in 2010 and marriage to Ned Rocknroll in December last has given her much-needed clarity about life.

"I`ve really learned a great deal about myself in the last four years, in particular. I think I can see more clearly now - about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played and I`m grateful for that," she added.
