Oct 25, 15 Ali   Articles, Loreal Comments Off on Kate Winslet Doesn’t Want Her Lancôme Ads Retouched

Smooth away fine lines and wrinkles? Slim the face and erase any blemishes? No thank you, says Kate Winslet.

The actress has always been very outspoken on her stance against retouching her photographs for magazine spreads and ads, so it may not come as a huge surprise that the beauty spokesperson has also made it so her L’Oréal contract states that her Lancôme ads are free of any additional editing to her appearance.

And when chatting with E! News’ Catt Sadler at the Elle Women in Hollywood event, Winslet explained why she’s so adamant on steering clear from the very popular practice.

“I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it’s a hope that other people might follow suit but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women,” the star told us when asked if she thinks other women will follow suit.

“I think they do look to magazines, I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.”

Winslet has expressed these sentiments for years. Back in 2009, the celeb shared during an interview that she would ask photos be reverted to their original state after seeing her face retouched, and explained that aging doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

“I have wrinkles here, which are very evident,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “And I will particularly say when I look at movie posters, ‘You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back?’ I’d rather be the woman they’re saying ‘She’s looking older’ about than ‘She’s looking stoned.’ “

Oct 23, 15 Ali   Articles, Events Comments Off on Zoë Saldana, Kate Winslet, Salma Hayek and More Celebrate Female Empowerment

Hollywood’s most influential women, including Kate Winslet, Amy Schumer, Salma Hayek and Nikki Reed, gathered in Beverly Hills Monday to celebrate their achievements – and to discuss continued gender inequality – at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.

Zoë Saldana also took part in the event and talked frankly about the challenges women in their industry continue to face.

“It’s hard because when a man speaks up he’s a genius, and when a woman speaks up she’s a b—-,” Saldana told reporters on the red carpet. “She’s difficult, she’s a diva.”

But fortunately, the 37-year-old actress says addressing that double-standard becomes easier with age.

“You go through your twenties trying to find yourself and you find yourself more preoccupied with wanting to please than wanting to stand up for yourself,” she explains. “Thank God your thirties come and you kind of go, ‘I want to break free.’ And you kind of let go and you start giving a lot of people the finger. And then, you’re happy.”

Winslet, 40, also shared her thoughts on what traits make up a positive female role model.

“Someone who can be true to themselves, honest about who they are,” she said. “Someone who feels confident within themselves. I think beauty really does come from within and confidence plays a huge part in that.”

Fortunately, she knows just the woman in Hollywood who embodies those traits: Emma Thompson!

“Emma Thompson is a very dear friend of mine and has always been a wonderful source of inspiration to me and a great beacon of strength as well simply because she’s a remarkable person who believes in herself and believes in supporting other women,” Winslet said. “That’s a great wish that we could all be like that.”

Like Winslet, Nina Dobrev also credits strong female friends as inspiration.

“I have the best girlfriends,” she said. “Ones that support me and I support them and I want to see the best for them … That’s the best thing in world.

“We all went to high school, we all felt the bullying and we’ve been in an environment where there isn’t support,” she continued. “It’s refreshing to be now an adult and to find people around me that it’s not like that anymore.”

Schumer, who has emerged as an outspoken feminist in the past year, spoke in even more straightforward terms about women in Hollywood.

When asked what kind of roles she would like to see created for women, she replied: “Human beings. Like, them playing human beings instead of, like, a caricatures from the 1920s.”

Oct 18, 15 Ali   Articles, Family Comments Off on Kate Winslet on Her Mini-Me Mia: ‘I Love a Forward-Thinking Daughter’

Kate shares with People about her daughter Mia and how she is a great help and quite smart!

Now that Kate Winslet‘s daughter Mia is 15 years old, the Steve Jobs star says she is starting to become just like her.

“Her brain works the same way that mine does now, which is brilliant,” Winslet, 40, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I love a forward-thinking daughter.”

The mother of three — Mia, Joe, 11, and Bear, 22 months — says having an older daughter helps when it comes to taking care of her younger boys.

After giving birth to Bear in 2014, her son with husband Ned Rocknroll, Winslet says her daughter is “incredibly helpful to me as a woman.”

“I’ll say to her, ‘Mims, can you please have Bear for the next hour? I’m just gonna grab a shower and I got a couple things I got to do,’ ” Winslet says. “She’s like, ‘Yep, sure!’ ”

She adds, “It’s really special in terms of, that’s what families are about. Children should play with each other and look after each other. That’s really what we have and it’s very special and something that I never could have anticipated.”
