How Kate Winslet Talks to Her Daughter About Body Positivity


Kate Winslet made an appearance on the July 27 episode of NBC’s Running Wild With Bear Grylls, where she talked about how she didn’t have a body-positive female role model growing up.

“When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life,” Winslet told Grylls . “I only ever heard negatives. That’s very damaging, because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”

The 39-year-old Oscar winner hopes to be a positive role model for her own teenage daughter, Mia.

“I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, ‘We are so lucky that we got a shape. We’re so lucky we’re curvy. We’re so lucky we’ve got good bums,'” Winslet said. “And she’ll say, ‘Mommy, I know, thank God.'”

In other words, Kate Winslet is the best mom ever—not to mention a positive body role model to millions of young women. “Happiness it isn’t a search for facial or physical perfection,” she said. “It comes from inside.”
