Kate Winslet Explains Why She Isn’t Obsessed With Having A Flat Stomach

Kate Winslet has opened up about body image in a candid new interview, revealing that she’d rather be there for her children than ‘spend time thinking about the size of my arse’.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is currently pregnant with her third child, opened up about body confidence in an interview with Time Out to promote her upcoming movie, Labor Day.

‘Look. I’m 37 years old. We have one life. I don’t want to spend my time thinking about the size of my arse. I want to be as healthy as I can be, and I want to have as much fun as I can have,’ Kate told the magazine.

‘I want to be around for my children. That’s it. Those are the priorities. Not getting a flat stomach.’

The Lancôme face also revealed that she thinks other actresses are changing their attitudes towards body shape, focusing on being healthy rather than just thin.

‘Don’t get me wrong, I like staying fit and healthy, it’s all part of a healthy attitude to life. I don’t think I’m alone in this.

‘I’m seeing more and more curvier actresses out there. And every now and then the fashion world will give us a slightly curvier model. I just believe in being normal and healthy.’

Kate Winslet, who has always been an outspoken spokesmodel for body confidence, famously complained when a 2003 GQ cover she featured on was digitally airbrushed, saying at the time:
 
‘I do not look like that and more importantly I don’t desire to look like that.’

In 2011, Winslet formed the ‘Anti-Plastic Surgery League’ with fellow stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson, explaining: ‘I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face.’

Don’t expect Kate to go on some crazy post-baby boot camp diet once she gives birth to her baby, her first with husband Ned Rocknroll, whom she wed last December.

‘How does anyone have the time? Also, let’s be real here. Everyone is different. Springing back into shape after a baby, that’s not really something that’s ever happened particularly swiftly for me. That’s just me,’ she tells Time Out.

Isn’t Kate just great?
