Kate Winslet has criticized Hollywood’s obsession with “skinny” women.
The curvy ‘Titanic’ actress is bothered by size 00 celebrities, like Nicole Richie and Kate Bosworth, and has even banned her husband, director Sam Mendes, from discussing weight related issues in their home.
She said, ‘This skinny thing, it angers me so much. It disturbs me. In our house, we don’t talk about weight, we don’t talk about body image. I don’t understand the fascination with it. The interest in certain people, like Nicole Richie, in regards to weight, is incredible, and it’s a mystery to me.’
The 30-year-old star claims that she is in love with her voluptuous figure, and is happy being a role model to young girls. She says that she had long before accepted that she would never be able to wear skinny jeans.
She added, ‘Now, more than ever, I feel this tremendous sense of staying the same shape and saying, ‘Look! I get pimples too.”
