DiCaprio helped Kate Winslet get over weight issuesDecember 29th, 2008 - 12:01 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 29 (ANI): Actress Kate Winslet has revealed that it was actor Leonardo DiCaprio who helped her get over her weight issues.
The actress revealed that DiCaprio’’s pep talk on the set of Titanic helped her come to terms with her body issues.
However, Winslet also confessed that she still finds it hard to deal with fame.
“I”m still coming to terms with (fame) to be honest. I knew from when I was very, very young I wanted to be an actress. I certainly didn”t think it meant making films because to me that was something Judy Garland did, Contactmusic quoted Winslet, as saying.
“As a child, I was overweight and I was very chubby and I was always the wrong kid at the audition because my hair was wrong and the shoes didn”t fit. I did loose weight very sensibility when I was younger but those says are very much behind me,” she added.
About DiCaprio, Winslet said, “I remember you saying to me one day, ”You”ve really got to let the whole fat girl thing go”. And that’’s the truth, you”re right.” (ANI)
