Kate Winslet: "The horrible comments about my weight after Titanic"
February 25, 2021 Kate Winslet, today, is a wonderful 45-year-old actress, mother of three children, committed to the environmentalist front, self-confident and satisfied with her love life (happily married since 2012 to Edward Abel Smith) and professional. But there was a long time, right after her huge success with Titanic, when she was only 21, that it was horrible for her. The sudden success internationally coincided with the beginning of a nightmare, made of body shaming and constant references and attacks on its weight. Kate was beautiful, but not wiry like so many models and actresses of those years and as the fashion of the period (remember Kate Moss?) Required. That was enough for her to be continually defined as "fat" and mocked in the tabloids. Even by women: comedian Joan Rivers teased her at the time, joking that "if she had lost even a couple of kilos, Leo would have been able to stay on the raft". All this, Kate remembers today in a long interview with the "Guardian" hurt her a lot and undermined her self-confidence. “Those constant observations about my weight have damaged my self-confidence and have also altered my idea of beauty. I felt very lonely and I remember thinking what I was going through was horrible and I wanted it to pass quickly. For sure it's over, but I think it made me realize that I probably wasn't ready for stardom at the time "Share on Facebook +
