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.’”

Kate Winslet Talks Turning 40: ‘I’ve Earned It’

Kate Winslet Talks Turning 40: 'I've Earned It'

Kate Winslet talked about turning forty in a new interview with People magazine.

The Insurgent star won’t celebrate the milestone until October 5th, but she is feeling quite positive about it. She said, “I’m definitely going to get to my 40th birthday and feel I’ve earned it.”

Clearly the idea of aging doesn’t bother the happily married mother of three. She laughs off the notion she still looks as young as ever: “Oh my god – I really truly don’t! I have the kind of wrinkles that are here to stay now.

“You know, not just the ones where you wake up in the morning and you go, ‘Oh, that will go away in 2 hours time.’ No, they’re there,” she says. “That’s the way that it is.”

Winslet has a busy year planned, with several films opening in 2015, beginning with her movie Insurgent on March 20.

“To be perfectly honest with you, I’m looking forward to a break,” she says, citing family time with husband Ned Rocknroll and children Mia, 14, Joe, 11, and Bear, 1. “I have been working quite a lot, and while that’s been fantastic, it will be lovely to have a little bit of down time. I’m very much feeling in need of that now.”

She adds, “But, there’s a lot to look forward to. I’m very lucky.”

She’s gorgeous and a fantastic actress – she definitely has a lot going for her!

Kate Winslet Covers ‘Marie Claire'; Talks Friendship With Leonardo DiCaprio

Kate Winslet Covers 'Marie Claire'; Talks Friendship With Leonardo DiCaprio

Kate Winslet covers the November issue of “Marie Claire” and inside she talks about the romance that never was with her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. At the time I think we all wanted LeoKate to happen, but it just wasn’t in the cards.

She told the magazine, “I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing. It’s so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did. He always saw me as one of the boys. I’ve never been a girly-girl.”

Despite that, they have remained close friends throughout the years and he even walked her down the aisle when she got married in 2012. Leo also opened up about his friendship with Kate in a recent interview. He said, “We laugh at the same things. She never lets me take myself seriously, even if I wanted to. We have a special magic.”
