Kate Winslet thinks that mums who work full time are the real heroes and says that she wouldn't want nannies raising her children.

In an interview with Glamour magazine the actress said, "Mothers who work full time – they're the real heroes."

She denied claims that  her children are "shipped around" with her when she's working and revealed that she doesn't have a team of people helping her to raise her three children.

"Sure, I could have lots of people who do the cooking, the driving, all that jazz – but I would be unhappy. I wouldn't want my children raised that way.

"They've always been with me. They don't go from pillar to post; they're not flown here and there with nannies. That's never happened. My kids don't go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and dads – my children live with me; that is it. That is it!"
