Kate Winslet is a beautiful goddess who can do no wrong (yes, that’s sarcasm), but her pedestal fell a few notches this week when she began offering thoughts on – of all god-forsaken topics – Miley Cyrus. You see, Kate has a young daughter of her own, so seeing stars like Miley go off the deep end is concerning to her as a mother, and she wonders what Miley’s fate will be.
“You hear horror stories where you think, ‘God, who’s looking after these people and why does it seem like they’re losing their way?’
“I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus , and I said to my daughter the other day, ‘I’m this close to opening my mouth about what’s going on with that girl’.
“Who is actually saying, ‘Stop for a second. What do you want, who are you?’ I’ve just been very lucky that I’ve always been quite comfortable with who I am.”
Oh dear, that sounded a bit la-di-da, didn’t it? That’s great that you were always comfortable with yourself, Kate (though I hardly think that’s the case since the Hollywood pressure to lose weight certainly worked on her), but that doesn’t mean that having to take a journey to figure that out makes you in some way defective or less-than. That’s not my defending Miley or anything, either – I just think in general, we’ve all got our own paths to take, and adolescence/young adulthood is awkward as hell… and different for everyone.That being said, I still love me some Kate Winslet… just not to fond of this fuckery.
