4Kate Winslet Talks Body Image (Again) to Vanity Fair Italia

From the Daily Mail via Vanity Fair Italia:

Winslet on whether she’s bored with talking about body image: “Better say that I’m bored of what it means that we are still here talking about it: it means that nothing has changed. Otherwise, no, I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old.”

On public criticism of her evolving body: ‘It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it.’

Getting rid of “the fat girl”: “It’s true that you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were, but – you know – I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks. Wow, isn’t this a wonderful line?”

On her normal life: “I have always lived an ordinary life, and always will. It’s who and what has to do with my job that makes it “unordinary.” I cook, go to the supermarket, pick my children up at school.”

You know, I can get behind Kate Winslet‘s backing of the unnatural idea for some people that every woman—no matter the age, height, or body structure—should be a size 00, but I’m kind of confused about where she’s going with the “you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were.” It seems like there’s still a bit of a sore spot there, and while I admire her for being able to admit these kinds of things candidly, it kind of strikes me as odd that she’d choose the words “get rid of the fat girl.” What’s so wrong with being “the fat girl”, either physically or psychologically?

But hey. Whatever, right? She’s not trashing ‘Titanic’ for the first time in six months, so I’m not going to pick it apart too much. She’s a beautiful lady with a beautiful figure, and judging by this interview, Kate’s apparently a whole different person than she used to be. We all grow at different paces, and it’s nice to see someone who’s been in the spotlight for so long evolve into something that she’s apparently always wanted to be.

    If personally you think it brings you down, then it’s something you must get rid off. Nevermind the fact that you should “feel comfortable in your skin no matter what” o pay attention to society/fashion/whatever’s standard. Being the “fat girl” does mean certain things that you might not feel comfortable with.

    I don’t think it has anything to do with “fat girls” in general, more of a personal statement.
