Kate Winslet, 37, has had a successful career over the last 20 years and has a total of six Academy Award nominations and one Oscar. When Kate was 31, she became the youngest actress ever to earn five Oscar nominations. She has had a full and busy life as an actress.
I think Kate is absolutely beautiful with a gorgeous body and I love how candid she is about her weight and her struggles. She is very open about the living a healthy lifestyle.
Kate Winslet talks to Vanity Fair Italy, which dedicates her the cover of its May 30th issue.
You are often talking about your “ordinary life”; is such a life actually possible?
I have always lived an ordinary life, and always will. It’s who and what has to do with my job that makes it “unordinary”. I cook, go to the supermarket, pick my children up at school. You have surely read something about it regarding my life.
Yes, I actually have. About your being normal and ordinary, a full literature has been written.
And it’s all true. I am aware that, since my career started so early and was lived so publicly, there are people who don’t stop wondering about me and how I actually lead my life. How does she deal with her children? Where do she leave them? My children are with me all the time. Period.
Another Kate Winslet classic: her fight in the name of all the women who do not wear XS. Bored of talking about it?
Better say that I’m bored of what it means that we are still here talking about it: it means that nothing has changed. Otherwise, no, I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old.
Do remarks on your weight bother you?
No more. It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it.
And how did you learn?
I took the hardest way: smashing my face against it.
For a woman who has been fighting with weight all of her life, it’s harder.
I know what you mean, and it’s true that you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were, but – you know – I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks. Wow, isn’t this a wonderful line!
Beautiful, beautiful photos of Kate after the jump >>>>>
