Friday Fame: Kate Winslet

"I don't believe in sort of holding back...life isn't a dress rehearsal!"

The lovely Kate Winslet is a tremendous talent with a tremendous personality (not to mention tremendous beauty and style) and I consider her a huge inspiration, so I was surprised last night when I realized I've never spotlighted her in our Friday Fame series! It's high time she was included among our list of inspirations, and I knew the best way to do that would be to share, through Kate's pictures and her own words, just what makes her beautiful.

"Sometimes I look in the mirror and go, 'Oh, why don't I just have a little bit more sucking in going on?' But if my cheekbones don’t become more prominent with age, they don't. Hey-ho! There's more to life than cheekbones."

"I have wrinkles...which are very evident. And I will particularly say when I look at movie posters, 'You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back?'"

"It's important for me to stand by my views, because I do think glossy magazines are the culprit of a lot of these young women's obsessions with the idea of perfection. I mean, every magazine cover we see now has been retouched. These poor young girls look at these photos and say: 'I wish I had that body' or 'I wish I had beautiful skin like that'. What they don't know is that the actress is wearing three-inch thick make-up, and the pictures have been digitally enhanced or reduced or whatever. It just gives an incorrect idea of beauty. To me, a beautiful person is someone who makes me laugh and is comfortable in their own skin, whatever shape and size they are."

"Because of the person I am I won't be knocked down - ever. They can say I'm fat, I'm thin, I'm whatever, and I'll never stop. I just won't. I've got too much to do. I've too much to be happy about."

I adore her outlook; she definitely represents a lot of quailities I strive for on a self-esteem level, and I love that she dedicates herself in some degree to giving a voice to that. I think we could all learn a lot from her!

I feel the same way about her and I'm glad you chose her! It's funny because I was looking at some of her best outfits in the latest InStyle magazine last night and wondered if we featured her. She's so confident and I love that!

Ahh she's my girl crush! What an amazing woman!

Ahh these quotes are gorgeous. I personally find pictures in which I can see the details and wrinkles on a person's face so much more beautiful than a picture that has been photoshopped beyond a certain point in which it doesn't look like a really person anymore.

I need to see some more of her films!

I love her; she's perfect for this feature. Did you ladies change your background, or am I just used to reading it on a smaller screen? Either way, it looks great.
