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.”
