Kate Winslet extends sympathy for young actressesMay 1st, 2009 - 3:24 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 1 (ANI): Kate Winslet considers herself lucky to have found fame in the 1990s, because she thinks today’s young actresses are at the centre of more intense media attention than she ever was.
The Oscar-winning actress tasted success alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997’s ‘Titanic’, but was heavily criticised about her curvy figure at the same time.
However, the British beauty “bounced back” from the criticisms and learned to love her figure, but has admitted that the unwanted attention was “f**king hard” for her.
And now, the 33-year-old actress pities new girls taking their first steps in Hollywood, because she thinks they face even more judgement about their looks and their personal lives.
“It’s really, really tough. It’s like, ‘She’s fat, she’s thin, she’s married, she’s divorced.’ I had all that and bouncing back is f**king hard,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Marie Claire magazine.
She added: “I’m really, really happy I’m not a younger actor or actress working now because they have to run before they can walk.” (ANI)
