Dive In

I have wrinkles here, 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?' I'd rather be the woman they're saying 'She's looking older' about than 'She's looking stoned.'

That’s Kate Winslet who turned 45 years younger today—after decades of advocating body positivity long before it was fashionable in an industry that prizes only the young and the skinny. Thank you, Kate!

Big Story
