"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."
The thought of interviewing Kate Winslet is likely a dream for even the most-established journalists, but it's hard to imagine speaking with the Oscar winner for one's first-ever interview.
But that's what happened to a children's reporter named Martha, who interviewed Winslet for "Avatar: The Way of Water" for the German TV network ZDF. The interview went viral on social media as Winslet sweetly stopped the interview to comfort Martha and offer her advice and encouragement.

"Um, it's my first time," a seemingly shy Martha revealed, to which Winslet replied, "This is your first time doing it? OK, well guess what?"
She then leaned in, and continued, "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."
"You can ask me anything that you want, and you don't have to be scared," Winslet kindly added. "Everything is going to be amazing. Ok? You've got this. Ok, let's do it!"
British reporter Liv Marks reshared the video of the interaction on Twitter, which quickly went viral.
