she is under the impression you all can

God yes - busy working mother of two, tick, Oscar, erm no, vain and shallow, nope - so actually no I can't. She should enjoy what she's got and stop patronising the mere mortals.

I'm slightly tired of being told why her not being airbrushed in a magazine photo makes all us other civillians feel better about growing old gracefully.

er yes i do really, i quite like her

Why does she insist on harping on about this? Is it her only topic of conversation?

I used to like her, but she seems to have become awfully smug and condescending.

She's only bloody 33. She's hardly carrying the flag for the "ölder" actress in Hollywood is she FFS?

But then on the other hand I assume that all "stars" have the standard questions asked about them in interviews:

1. Kate W - anything about airbrushing or being fat.

2. Sienna Miller - anything about being hounded by the press and Jude Law.

3. Jennifer Aniston - anything about being "unlucky in love".

etc. So even though they seem to be "harping" on about the same topic, they're probably just answering the questions they're given.

Totally agree with Ozziegirly on this one. Actually I feel sorry for Kate at the mo. The Daily Mail keeps writing articles about her because she is suing them for slander after a particularly nasty Liz Jones article. That's why they've got it in for her. Plus, I don't really think it's her fault that the articles are always the same. When I have read an interview with her, it's the journalists who usually bring all that weight, motherhood, airbrushing stuff and not her. She just get's asked the same questions over and over so it's no wonder it looks like she keeps harping on.

If she does an interview with Empire, Total Film or something like that, they tend to be better interviews because they focus more on her and her work and don't bother with the other stuff. Seriously, if I was her at the moment I would stay away from interviews with fashion mags etc. . . They don't do her any favours!!

Easy to embrace your wrinkles at 33 - hopefully she'll embrace the open pores/weird sprouty hairs/decreasing elasticity which is just a few years away WAAAAAAAAAIL!

Do I feel I can identify with Kate Winslett - hmmm. Only in the sense that I am on the 'cuddly' side and once peed in a desert.

While we're at it, shouldn't she have made a bit more effort to save that nice young chap who slipped off her life-raft?

I identify because I lost my virginity on a ship and I've been to Reading.

CybilLiberty Sat 25-Jul-09 19:21:18

I identify as much as I do with every drop dead gorgeous Oscar winning multi millionairess actress who has shagged this man in a film I hasten to add

Well, having a paper headline a photo of you on their front page with TITANIC in reference to your weight, when you're 20, might lead you to anxiety on the subject, I think. I actually do admire her for not succumbing to stick-insect-hood, though I can't say I identify with her particularly. And journalists do seem to have a script with most actors before the interview ever starts.

And agreed that the reason the Daily Mail are printing negative stories, complete with unflattering pics, is because she's suing them for libel for claiming she is a liar over her body image stuff. That paper is vile on so many fronts, and presenting Liz Jones as an appropriate person to discuss another woman's body in print is just another example. She should be sharing those ramblings with her therapist, in my opinion - sad she is so messed up, but must she get paid to inflict that on us?

She is only 33 shock she seems to be around for ever.

I like her as a actress, I think she is very pretty.

maggievirgo Mon 27-Jul-09 23:26:03

I've been told I look like her a few times and I was horrified. Think she looks quite 'ordinary'. I'm much hotter, but I whinge less and earn less. And I don't care if people relate to me or not.
