With this exciting announcement, we share our favourite Kate Winslet quotes- we love a proud woman who stands up for herself and believes you must love yourself as you are.
ICYMI: Kate Winslet couldn’t care less about looking good in nude scenes. She is all about loving and accepting your body.
“Everyone can commit to 20 minutes, especially if there’s a glass of Chardonnay afterwards” – Talking about the gym and exercise.
“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.”
“I would honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing. Even all the bad bits. It doesn’t matter how ***** times have been, they all matter, because those things shape who you are. And if you don’t like who you are, well, then you’re f***** really, aren’t you?”
“I so didn’t want to be one of those ‘Oh, wow, she’s back in shape after 12 weeks’ women. When I read things like that, I just think, ‘Oh, for ****’s sake, that’s actually impossible.’”
