Kate Winslet Talking About Her Imperfect Boobs Only Makes Her More Perfect

I love Kate Winslet. I think she’s an awesome down-to-earth actress who chooses great film projects to work on. But I guess that’s a perk of being a great actress, all the best scripts are sent to your doorstep with attached post-its that just read, “if you don’t agree to be in my movie, I’ll die, I’ll just die!”

Recently she spoke to The Sun about taking off her clothes in her movies and says quite possibly the most endearing statement ever about on-screen nudity.

“I look like the people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite — of course I don’t — and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great. On a deeper, subconscious level, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen. It’s partly because I do believe that it’s right for the character and it’s right for the story but it’s also knowing that not many people do that, actually — and not just that, but I’m a normal person.”

She gets naked to make the rest of us normals feel better about our own cellulite. God bless her golden heart.  Even if her boobs are perfect. And I know that from watching her pose nude for Jack in Titanic when I was 11. Even then I adjusted my brand new Limited Too AAA bra and thought, “not too shabby Katie, not at all.” Except I didn’t sound as creepy as that felt when I typed it. Probably because I had holiday-themed braces.

On the slight chance, you’re not already sending this story to all your friends and singing, “I’m a Woman, Hear me Roar, ” at the top of your lungs, check out this other classic Kate quote from the interview. She speaks out against all the ridiculous perks you hear about superstar actors getting on set.

“I might be playing the lead but no one’s trailer is going to be bigger than anyone else’s, no one is going to have all these stars flopping around, no one is going to have a great big entourage. As for the perks package that a lot of famous people do tend to have, I will either completely avoid it, or do something like roll that person’s job into one. Sometimes I watch the credits at the end of movies and I count people’s assistants and I just think, ‘You ****ing ****er’.”

Could she be more admirable? I’ll answer for you. No. I want her to be my mentor and life coach and my parent. If that’s too much to ask for, I’ll settle for a signed Titanic 3D DVD cover.

    Was what it about Limited Too bras? I don’t think I know a single girl that didn’t wear them

    I dunno that you can use Titanic as a reliable example. My boobs look completely different than they did when I was 18 (she was 18ish then right?), her have probably done the same thing. It’s been 15 years and she’s had two kids during that time. That doesn’t mean they won’t be still amazing, but only plastic surgery will freeze the girls in time.
