The mother-of-three, who is married to Sir Richard Branson's nephew, Ned Rocknroll, said she is enjoying a fabulous stage in her personal and professional life, and will spend the big 4-0 - on 5 October - in a bikini, just because she can, reports the Daily Mail.

While chatting to Ross King on ITV's Lorraine about her latest film, Insurgent, Kate touched on the milestone birthday.

According to the Express, she said, "I'm 40 this year. I'm very excited about it actually.

"I think the last couple of years I've done a lot, had the baby, creatively it's been just really interesting, diverse and sort of fulfilling so I kind of feel like when I get to that 40th birthday I will have earned it."

She added: "I have this strange notion that I'm going to spend the day in a bikini, I don't know why I sort of decided that but I just want to feel great and vital, and all the things I do actually feel."

Kate's first big screen smash, Titanic, hit the screens back in 1997. What?
