Kate Winslet Covers 'Glamour' April 2011

Kate Winslet Covers 'Glamour' April 2011

Kate Winslet rocks an Herve Leger by Max Azria dress paired with Van Cleef & Arpels earrings on the cover of Glamour magazine’s April 2011 issue, on newsstands Tuesday (March 8).

Here’s what the 35-year-old Mildred Pierce actress had to share:

On weight struggles when she was younger: “I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me – and it was such a backhanded compliment – they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’ ”

On whether she’s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body: “No, I have never tried any of that stuff…I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.”

On what it was like to win the Oscar: “I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”

On if her ambition has changed since winning an Oscar: “I have just wanted to be an actress. That’s always been my goal. I didn’t want to be famous. I wanted to play incredibly challenging, multifaceted characters. Because we are all a puzzle.”

On the difficulties of raising kids: “The challenge is making sure that they’re never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky. The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids – and I can say that this does happen frequently – is when the in-flight crew say to me, ‘Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved.’ Every time I am told that, I could weep.”

    Cover! good

  • Fabbie

    I am so sick of photoshop. Every cover model is made to look the same. I thought she was Jennifer Aniston before I read the title. What’s wrong with people just being themselves instead of a fake image?

  • jamie

    She’s stunning, but I wish they just chose the simple black dress that shows off her curves and more of her face for the cover instead of this one.

  • jamie

    @jamie: I mean, chose the pic where she’s wearing the black dress and more of her face is shown….obviously the dress doesn’t cover her face.

    Why sick coz what?

  • hm

    I love her!!! but I really wish magazines went back to using models again! I like to watch actresses on the big screen only. they are terrible models for the most part. Photoshopping now days is a horror. They make everyone look like distorted clones.

  • http://Tj Kaz zimply Aaaaaamezing!!!!

    She amazing amazing amazing

  • Chelsea

    I love Kate, always have, always will. She’s an actress who literally delivers EVERY time.

  • lola_uk

    i thought that was madonna

  • Tom

    She just leaves me breathless. In magazine or in films.

  • sam

    she hasn’t had plastic surgery yet she has a completely different face from when she started out….sure, okay. why do they ALL lie about these things???

  • Sun

    she’s fat

  • Hammer

    It’s not plastic surgery, she still looks the same. It’s the magazine that does the tweaking with photoshop, and frankly, I don’t see why stars do these covers. It’s obviously not a representation of THEM, just some fake image of them. Why anyone would think that’s appealing, I’ll never know.

  • Your body is SOOOOOOOOOOO fit

    What she says about people always complimenting on her face is the exact opposite of what happens with Jennifer Aniston LMAO

  • Ehm

    @Sun: Oh really? I wonder what you look like then… I think she’s absolutely beautiful

  • kerry

    wow she is gorgeous and she should be in the next dark knight
    she is more hot than marion cotillard i think

  • lexy hates bilson

    Finally a REAL and TALENTED actress on your website JJ!!! Some of these supposed actresses need to take note – Kate’s in the CRAFT of acting – not just being famous or worse – just a celeb!!!

  • Marisa

    She’s beautiful. She’s not like other actresses, and there’s no one quite like her. She has so much passion for what she does. I think she has a unique talent and a very distinct look. To the person who said she has a different face than when she started out, that’s not right. The only difference is that she aged, she doesn’t have that baby-faced puppy fat anymore. She grew into her looks. I also wish the magazines didn’t photoshop her so much – she doesn’t need it!

  • admit to the nose job, Kate!

    Lying does not become her.If you see her in her early movies, it’s obvious that her nose has mysteriously shrunk.

  • Aliz

    I love this woman! *__*
