A video of Kate Winslet telling a young interviewer not to be scared has gone viral.

In the footage, Martha, who was interviewing Winslet for German TV network ZDF, can be heard telling the Titanic star: “Um, it’s my first time.”

Winslet is quick to reassure her, saying: “This is your first time doing it? OK, well guess what? When we do this interview, it’s going to be the most amazing interview ever.

“And do you know why? Because we’ve decided that it’s going to be. So, we’ve decided right now, me and you, that this is going to be a really fantastic interview.”

She continues: “And you can ask me anything that you want, and you don’t have to be scared. Everything is going to be amazing. OK? You’ve got this. OK, let’s do it!”

Journalist Liv Marks shared the video on Twitter on Monday (9 January), alongside a selfie of Martha with the actor.

“Kate Winslet reassuring this young girl that her interview will be amazing is the most precious thing I’ve ever seen,” she wrote.
