Though Kate Winslet is celebrated for her curvy figure, the 35-year-old actress tells the April issue of Glamour that she wasn't always happy with her body.
"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,'" she recalls.
Kate Winslet's weight isn't the only part of her appearance under scrutiny; she also denies ever having plastic surgery.
"No, I have never tried any of that stuff," she tells the mag. "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."
And she admits she had become familiar with losing out on prizes.
The Titanic star tells America's Glamour magazine, "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'."
