Kate Winslet Wanted To Wear Bra Before Rescuing Branson's Mom In Fire

What did Kate Winslet (photosKate Winslet photos) do after she was abruptly awakened in Richard Branson's Caribbean island home by a fire? Put on a bra, of course.

"It was genuinely very scary. We woke up at 4:30 in the morning to yelling that there was a fire," Winslet told 'The Graham Norton Show' on the BBC.

"I jumped up and ran immediately towards the fire but then realized we might die so turned around, told my children to go in and shut the door and then thought, 'Now what do I do?'"

"I ran into the bedroom and put on a bra," she said. "In disastrous moments like that, you do the strangest things."

"I started to put on a bra and thought 'No, that's going to take me too long,' so off came the bra, on came the T-shirt, I grabbed the children and I picked up Granny."

Winslet helped save Branson's mother after the Guest House on Branson's private island in the British Virgin Islands went up in flames.

"No, I didn't save her life," she said. "I carried her down the stairs is the truth of it."

"We were all at the top of some very slippery stone steps and in the middle of a hurricane it was so dramatic, there was lashing rain and it really did feel like being in a movie. In truth, I carried Eve Branson down the stairs."

"I have to say Eve Branson is an extraordinary stoic, powerful lady and she could have totally made it out on her own. I just helped that tiny little bit."
