Academy Award Winner Kate Winslet
I’m Kate from fucking Reading!
not an awful lot that embarrasses me. I'm the kind of actress that absolutely believes in exposing myself.
I never had a desire to be famous. I never had huge ambitions – never. I was fat. I didn’t know any fat famous actresses. I just did not see myself in that world at all, and I’m being very sincere. You know, once a fat kid, always a fat kid. Because you always think that you just look a little bit wrong or a little bit different from everyone else. And I still sort of have that. I often look at women who wear great jeans and high heels and nice little T-shirts wandering around the city and I think, “I should make more of an effort. I should look like that”. But then I think, “They can’t be happy in those heels”.
As a child, I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body”. Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia [her daughter], because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.
My skin still crawls if you call me a movie star. I get embarrassed. I think, don’t be ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I’m British. To me, Julia Roberts that’s a movie star. But when people do call me one, that, I think, is an enormous compliment but, my God, is that a responsibility!

I don’t need nice. I don’t need myself to be it, and I don’t need anybody else to be it at me.
