When I go nude in films it empowers women, says Kate Winslet
London: Kate Winslet, who often tops sexiest actress polls, thinks that she looks no better than the average woman.
The 36-year-old actress, who famously went topless as Rose DeWitt Bukater in ‘Titanic’, insists that she doesn’t have “perfect boobs”.
Even though she believes she has imperfections, Winslet has no qualms about signing up for sexy romantic scenes.
She has appeared partially naked in films such as ‘Little Children’, ‘The Reader’, ‘Holy Smoke!’ and the recent Emmy-winning US television drama ‘Mildred Pierce’.
The down-to-earth actress is pleased if her relaxed approach to nudity makes other women and actresses feel comfortable about it too.
“I look like the people that walk down the street. I don’t have perfect boobs, I don’t have zero cellulite — of course I don’t — and I’m curvy. If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that’s great,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
“On a deeper, subconscious level, it’s one of the reasons why I’ve allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen.
“It’s partly because I do believe that it’s right for the character and it’s right for the story but it’s also knowing that not many people do that, actually — and not just that, but I’m a normal person,” she added.
