Kate Winslet is Disturbed By Skinny Chicks

We love that Kate loves her curves and promotes a healthy body image for ladies around the world. Not only is she acting like a fabulous role model for women, but for her own daughter as well. Here's more:

"It's so disturbing because young girls are impressionable from 11 up to 19 or 20 even. Women are very impressionable at those ages," Winslet told British Broadcasting Corp. television's "Sunday AM" program.

"They're trying to figure out who they are, and they want to be loved, and what I resent is that there is an image of perfection that is getting thinner and thinner, and it's truly upsetting to me."

The British actress said she refuses to allow any magazines featuring rake-thin models into her house for fear her daughter, Mia, will see them.

"It's only a matter of time before she becomes aware of it, and it frightens the life out of me," said Winslet, who is married to director Sam Mendes.

Winslet said she hoped her success will be an inspiration to others.

"I hope that in some small way I'm able to say, 'I'm a normal person, I'm doing all right.' I've got a lovely husband and children and I didn't lose weight to find those things, and those things are what should be important."

We couldn't agree with Kate more. We hope the super skinny starlet look fades fast. Kate is a perfect example of a talented, beautiful actress who isn't starving for food or attention. Perhaps that is the real secret to her success. For more pics of Kate looking beautiful and healthy just

I saw The Holiday and also Little Children. It struck me during both movies that Kate has a little extra on her that many Hollywood actresses would be killing themselves to take off. She looks good, healthy, womanly. Normal. Not the ridiculous American average size 14-16, but just shapely... and very nice. I love that she's not trying to diet away her blessings! BeachBarbie, maybe your mother-in-law is just jealous of your abiliy to eat what you want and stay thin. I think that women who are naturally thin look fine. Hey, if you're thin, you're thin. I wish I was that way naturally! I have to work at staying normal. But, I also think that it does look really bad to see a normal sized person who has over-dieted. It does NOT look the same as healthy person who is naturally thin!

BlondeSugar & jgasie, I wish some people knew what we where talking it's weird looking. Great, and the point will never be noticed. :OY:

Jgasia, I think people who are commenting on the dog have deeper issues, you know. Stinks.

she is pretty thin too, I mean , if you are talking about Nicole R. or Kate Bosworth, that is one thing, but nobody thinks they look that great. I love Kate, but I honestly do not think she is one to talk on this subject. I saw her in person , and she is very thin as well.

BlondeSugar, I didn't figure you did listen to her but, I just had to comment. Yeah my dog has always been healthy..she just looked a little thin to some people (when she was younger). The vet has always been very pleased with her weight, even now. :)
BlondeSugar BlondeSugar 10 years
Don't worry BeachBarbie, I don't. She has serious body image issues. And has had them for a long time.

BlondeSugar, don't listen to what your Grandmother says about your weight, or your dog's for that matter. Just keep being healthy..that's the whole point, and I know that. :)
BlondeSugar BlondeSugar 10 years
Wow, BeachBarbie. That's so rude. SO SO SO rude. Our pups are very healthy, as I'm sure yours are.
BeachBarbie BeachBarbie 10 years
BlondeSugar, I can't believe she commented on your dog. :( I actually used to get comments on how skinny my dog was.."do you feed her?". Our dog is spoiled rotten, and her food bowl is always full 24/7. She just gained weight later on in life. She just has skinny genes. Those comments infuriated I wasn't being a good Mom, or something. :MOB: Btw., Sam and Lola look very healthy, and happy. :)

That's horrible jgasia. My grandmother who was bulemic and hasn't had sugar in over 30 years told me over Thanksgiving that I look MUCH better than I did on Mother's day, bc I lost some extra weight. I am 126lbs, 5'10". But this is also a woman who called my 5 pound dog FAT. :mob:

bluejeanie, thanks...I just saw your comment. :)
BeachBarbie BeachBarbie 10 years
jgasia, that s*cks. I'm sorry to hear that your mother-in-law said those things. You can't help your genes, you know? lol I eat more than my hubby too, and I've also been really tiny my whole life. Right now, I'm working on putting on weight because, I want to be at my normal weight again (I got really stressed out, and the weight fell off). But, when my mother-in-law saw me this past Nov., she was nice but, the entire conversation revolved around weight. I got really tired of it so, I just stopped spending so much time with everyone on that have to take care of yourself. I feel like, as long as I'm healthy and my doctor is okay..I'm fine. It helps the anxiety, and stress of gaining weight...I'm finally adding on some pounds now that the people I'm around have backed off the subject. :)

i totally agree beachbarbie! i have always been very thin and gotten a lot of crap about it. on turkey day, my hubby's mom told me that i was looking skinnier than usual. i explained to her that i eat a lot (usually more than her son) and i have always been thin and i used to be even smaller. she said, "as long as you aren't purposefully not eating to be small". i am 5'8" and 120-125lbs. she hardly knows me and said this!!!... it makes me angry. i shouldn't feel i have to defend myself when i am perfectly healthy. i would not tell someone "you are looking fatter than usual!"

BlondeSugar, thanks for being supportive, and understanding about this issue...I've always wondered about that question.

Why is it okay to call really thin girls disgusting but, if someone calls a really overweight person disgusting..all h*ll breaks loose. I wouldn't call anybody disgusting based on their weight..I'm getting really sick of seeing, and hearing these comments. :IRK:

Kate is a gorgeous woman. She is a good actress. ____________________________________________________ Makes my skin crawl

Stick figure skinny girls are much longer until we can change women from feeling they need to look and be anorexic??? Being overweight isn't healthy either though..people need to embrace the healthy balance.
