Kate Winslet Gets the Last Word

Kate Winslet, one of my faves, was nominated for another Oscar. This is her 5th nomination - WOW.

What a wonderful retort to her early acting teachers that told her she would be relegated to playing "fat girls."
She told reporters that:

"This isn't supposed to happen to a girl who grew up in a tiny town. I was told the only way I'd have a career as an actress would be if I could settle for playing fat girls."

Kate is curvy and sexy and super talented. I think it is wonderful to see a woman succeed in Hollywood with what I consider a normal body.

Congrats Kate!!!!

At the rate she's going, she just might beat Meryl's record for Oscar nods! And the Academy could care less of what kind of figure an actress has.

She's one of my favorites; so pretty. Whenever I watch 'Titanic' I can't believe that the press called her fat in that movie. Please.
