Actress Kate Winslet, 47, revealed in a recent interview with The Sunday Times that she faced bullying early in her career because of her figure. And she admired her daughter, who, according to the actress, is much more self-confident than Kate herself was at her age. People writes about this.

Kate admitted that when she was 14 years old, she studied at the drama school, the teacher called her “fat” and said that she would have to play “only fat.” She likened it to the brutality of today's social media, which makes it hard for some women to be proud of their bodies.

“It's very frustrating, people are being criticized that a young and vulnerable person can't handle,” she added that now Hollywood has become more inclusive.

“But things really change in the film industry. When I was younger, they called my agent and asked: “What is her weight?”. I'm not kidding. So it's nice that the situation began to change, “the actress shared unpleasant memories.

Winslet noted that now, despite criticism in social networks, women like her 22-year-old daughter Mia Tripleton are much stronger than she was at that age.

“My daughter's generation is able to stand up for themselves “They have already learned that they will be heard. Obviously not in every situation, but they know how to use their voice – especially young women. It amazes me. When I was younger, you only spoke when you were spoken to. Young women are stronger now.” And they are more proud of their bodies,” according to the actress in the past, she was frankly severely criticized and this “undermined her self-confidence.”

After starring in Hamlet and Titanic in the late 1990s, Kate Winslet rose to fame and survived a flurry of criticism from the tabloid media and people like Joan Rivers, who joked that “if Kate Winslet lost a few pounds,” Titanic “would never have sunk”.

“When I was 20, people talked a lot about my weight. It was almost ridiculous, how shocking, how critical, how openly cruel tabloid journalists were to me. I was still figuring out who the hell I was! And they commented on my size, they estimated my weight, they printed the supposed diet I was on. It was unpleasant to read, “Kate admitted.

“It undermined my confidence. I did not want to go to Hollywood, because I thought : “God, if that's what they say about me while I'm in England, then what happens when I get there?”. Also, it interferes with your developing idea of ​​u200bu200bwhat is beautiful, you know? I really felt herself very lonely. For the simple reason that nothing can really prepare you for this, “Kate admitted.

The actress said that she learned to ignore criticism only in 2000, when her daughter Mia was born.

“I had Mia when I was about 25. And all this shit just evaporated,” summed up Kate Winslet.

But now she forbids retouching her photos and even quarreled with the director of the series “Meir of Easttown” when he tried to edit posters with her image .
