Kate Winslet says 'it was almost laughable how shocking, how critical, tabloid journalists were to me'

Kate Winslet has always been mocked for not being a certain size as an actress. The Titanic starlet recalled being shamed by Hollywood for being slightly overweight.

In a recent interview with the Guardian, Winslet said, "In my 20s, people would talk about my weight a lot. And I would be called to comment on my physical self. Well, then I got this label of being ballsy and outspoken. No, I was just defending myself."

Calling out all tabloids, she added, "It was almost laughable how shocking, how critical, how straight-up cruel tabloid journalists were to me. I was still figuring out who the hell I bloody well was!"

"They would comment on my size, they’d estimate what I weighed, they’d print the supposed diet I was on. It was critical and horrible and so upsetting to read," she continued. "But it also made me feel so… so moved. By how different it is now."
