Kate Winslet true to self
The Oscar-winning actress has been through two divorces and raises two children. Kate believes her personal struggles have made her a stronger person.
“I have this lovely career and I have these two beautiful children and I get all that. But there is something about hanging on to your sense of self as a woman in spite of having children and in spite of going through a lot of fairly big-deal things in my own personal life,” she told British newspaper The Sun. “I’m just like anyone else when it comes to those things. It doesn’t matter if you are a successful individual or not, you are still a human being and it’s tough.
“That’s the stuff of life — it’s tough — and lots of us have been there. I think I have emerged from some of those times feeling genuinely good and well and strong and together and with my children.”
Kate was just 21 when she starred in Titanic alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. She realises that a lot of time has passed since then, but her career has gone from strength to strength.
The British star insists she has no worries about her looks changing in that time.
“Oh my God, I couldn’t give a sh*t,” she replied when asked about ageing. “I mean, I’m so much less self-conscious and I think that’s something to do with getting older and acceptance of one’s self, feeling stronger, feeling more confident…
“I mean, I remember being 21 and imagining that at 36 my t*ts would be around my knees and I would have bad hair and terrible teeth. When you are younger, somehow being in your later thirties just seems really old.
“But I feel stronger, fitter and more comfortable in my own skin now than I have ever done.”
