Kate Winslet can’t stand the size 0 Hollywood. She plans to keep her curves and not give in to the pressure.
“I don’t really remember sitting down and eating packets and packets of [cookies]. But at that time I remember making a conscious decision about the whole skinny thing. Being a normal shape – and I hate to sound like a cracked record – is really, really important to me. Especially now, when I think it’s pretty out of control in the industry and kind of terrifying.”
She now plans to take a year long sabbatical to spend time with her family. Especially after playing a disconnected mother in her latest film.
“It was very trying to play a mother who basically couldn’t feel close to or look after the needs of her child. It was disturbing to put myself into that woman’s head and it made me all the more aware of my own responsibilities as a mother.”
She really has it all together. Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actresses.
