It’s hard to believe that Kate Winslet, grew up with a negative self-image, but she did. And she wants the cycle of body negativity to stop.
The British actress said on last night’s episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls that she was actually bullied at school for her body, feet and clothes, which she bought on a “shoestring” budget.
“I was chubby, always had big feet, the wrong shoes, bad hair,” she said. “When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life,” Winslet admitted, while traipsing about the mountains of Snowdonia, Wales with Grylls, 41. “I only heard negatives. That’s very damaging because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”
She talks more about this and how she inundates her daughter Mia with positivity HERE. We gotta say, we’re glad Winslet is speaking out!
