Kate Winslet: “I was told I might be lucky with acting, if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts”

3E864A4100000578-4339184-image-m-17_1490198171697 - Kate Winslet: "I was told  I might be lucky with acting, if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts"

On becoming a success story despite being branded ‘too fat’ and ‘not pretty enough’:

‘You see, I had been bullied at school. They called me Blubber. Teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me. I wasn’t the prettiest, I had big feet. And I was even told that I, “might be lucky with my acting, if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts”. You’re just not really what we’re looking for Kate. I didn’t lock myself away and give up on my dream. I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I HAD to believe in myself, I had to choose to rise above it all and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love, and BELIEVE that you are worth it. And sometimes that’s the hardest part.’

… says 41 year-old Kate during an inspirational speech at WE Day UK celebrations at London’s Wembley Arena this week.

On the major difference she noticed when she became a blonde:

It’s so instant. Boys are just aware of a blonde head of hair in the room. I’m positive. I’ve walked this planet as a brunette with total anonymity. And now I walk into a party and people are like… They’re like “Oh a blonde person with b~~~~!” Y’all males are real simple. Even simpler than I thought.

On maintaining her new light locks:

I am exhausted. For all of you who have dyed hair, you are heroes. This is exhausting — who knew? There’s so much maintenance! It’s a whole thing.

… says Girls star Alison (28).
