Rumors have been circulating that Kate Winslet is poised to play designer Vivienne Westwood in an upcoming biopic about the life of one of punk’s originators. And although Vogue.co.uk reported yesterday that Kate will take on the role, the Titanic star’s publicist tells PEOPLE that the rumors are “not at all true.” PEOPLE also spoke with Vivienne Westwood’s team, originally quoted in the British Vogue story, who denied the claim as well, telling us, “The script has not even been finished yet, let alone casting. Kate Winslet was just one of many names that were mentioned as possibles to play Vivienne, but this whole thing has been blown completely out of proportion.” Kate may not be stepping into the iconic designer’s towering platforms anytime soon, but we think that she’d make an interesting choice. Tell us: Who do you think should play Vivienne Westwood?
