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!

Kate Winslet is getting REAL about body image struggles that young girls face!
In an interview on Running Wild With Bear Gryll, the actress tells Grylls on the NBC show that she had no positive body image reinforcement, only disparaging comments that made her very critical of her own looks.
“When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life,” she tells Grylls. “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.”
Winslet decided to take a different approach when raising her children, including her 14 year old daughter Mia.
“I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, ‘We are so lucky we have a shape. We’re so lucky we’re curvy. We’re so lucky we’ve got good bums,’” Winslet notes. “And she’ll say, ‘Mommy, I know, thank God.’”

Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama- my favorite overdramatic and seemingly very codependent couple- took a stroll around Vancouver, Canada on Sunday with her dog and some weird other dogwalker dude.
The point is- Demi may not’ve wanted to do the dirty work, just in CASE Wilmer popped the question. Since she dished out those heavy hints, it could be any day now…though she’s making a point to be like, NO, we’re NOT engaged, so errybody LAY OFF, PLEASE…and then posts stuff like this on instagram:
What do you think: will Wilmer pop the question soon? Or is this just the musings of a 22 year old?

Extra extra: Iggy Azalea‘s new face spotted around town!
The Aussie rapper (is she even Australian anymore? She’s been in the states forever) was seen leaving Epione Cosmetic Dermatology in Beverly Hills yesterday. She’s taken great pains to only show her face when she wants you to see her face, and by the look of this dermatologist/attendant/woman in a white coat, it seems like the pap was not welcome at the center.
I’m still super bummed she got all that plastic surgery. I’m not bummed that she seems happy, and is now newly engaged to NBA star Nick Young. Still…I miss her old face.
What do you think of her plastic surgery?
