Kate Winslet & Joe’s Heart-To-Heart

Kate Winslet was photographed having a heart-to-heart chat with 5 1/2-year-old son Joe at his school in New York on Friday (October 30). Kate is also mom to 9-year-old daughter, Mia.

Kate was just awarded $40,000 after suing a British newspaper over an article labeling her “The World’s Most Irritating Actress.” The 34-year-old Academy Award-winning actress sued the Daily Mail in April (09) following a report that called her “vain” and accused her of lying about her fitness regime.

Following the ruling on November 3, Winslet released the following statement:

I am delighted that the Mail have apologised for making false allegations about me. I was particularly upset to be accused of lying about my exercise regime and felt that I had a responsibility to request an apology in order to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise. I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy.”

    Dear Kate, if you don’t want people to concentrate on your body issues, then please stop talking about them in every single interview.

    Sorry, while that report in DM accusing her of lying might be wrong, I don’t believe for one second that Kate “accepts herself as she is” (as she puts it). I remember reading her first interview after she won the Oscar earlier this year, and her response was something along he lines “my classmates used to tease me over my weight, but look who’s the Academy Award winner now. And where are they?” Add to that, that her Oscar campaign seemed to revolve around her figure, her weight, her butt, her eating normally (whatever that is) and it sounds like there a lot of undissolved feelings when it comes to her own body issues.
