Kate Winslet On Beauty & Body Image

Though she recently earned the title of the “Ultimate Natural Beauty” in a UK poll, Kate Winslet says part of her still feels like the overweight kid she used to be.

Revealing her childhood nickname was “Blubber,” Kate tells Marie Claire, “I was the girl that people would always say, ‘Ah, it’s such a shame, because you’ve got such a pretty face.'”

“I had that well into my teens,” the Oscar-winner continues, adding, “Even now I do not consider myself to be some kind of great, sexy beauty. I don’t mind the way I’m ageing. No reason to panic just yet. I think I look my age, and that’s fine.”

Kate, who is mom to kids Mia, 8, and Joe, 5, says that the intense Hollywood spotlight can be “crushing.”

“‘She’s fat, she’s thin, she’s married, she’s divorced.’ I had all of that, and bouncing back from that criticism is f–king hard. But they just go for the personal now in a way I think can be really crushing.”

The 33-year-old Revolutionary Road star says she thinks it’s important to reveal the truth behind the myth of Hollywood perfection, which can set an impossible standard. She’s criticized magazines for airbrushing photos of her in the past, and threatened to sue Grazia in 2007 over false claims that she was visiting a “diet doctor” in a desperate effort to slim down.

“I do think it’s important for young women to know that magazine covers are retouched. People don’t really look like that. In films I might look glamorous, but I’ve been in hair and make-up for two hours. With the nudity in The Reader, for example, even I was like, ‘Damn, I look good.’ It was a bit of body make-up. I don’t believe in pretending those things don’t go on.”

Who do you think are Hollywood’s Ultimate Natural Beauties?

    Cinco & Usher Have Fun In The Sun

    R&B recording artist and actor, Usher, was seen spending the day in the Miami sun with his 17-month-old son Usher ‘Cinco’ Raymond V.

    We just saw the handsome father-son duo (and Elmo) leaving LAX on Saturday for sunny Florida.

    Mom is Usher’s wife, Tameka Foster. The couple just welcomed their second son, Naviyd Ely Raymond, on December 10. Two months after giving birth to Naviyd, Tameka, 38, reportedly traveled to Brazil to have liposuction on her stomach. Reports say that shortly after she went under general anesthesia, she suffered a cardiac arrest and never had the liposuction. Accordingly, after her cardiac arrest, Tameka was immediately revived and placed in an induced coma. She is said to be home and recovering well.
