kate_winsletAs if beauty and talent weren’t enough, Kate Winslet has emerged as a kind of social voice of the “everygirl.” She fearlessly confronts negative body images in the media and bares her own voluptuous ”imperfections” in films like a one-woman show of force for genuine girls everywhere. Her being such a vocal proponent of inner beauty clearly doesn’t derive from an absence of physical appeal, as evidenced by her Catherine Deneuve-inspired spread in the December 2008 issue of Vanity Fair.

In early 2009, Kate Winslet appeared in two films based on novels: The Reader, a post-WWII drama, and Revolutionary Road, a film directed by her husband, Sam Mendes, that reunited her with Titanic costar Leonardo DiCaprio. She won a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe for her role in The Reader and a Best Actress Golden Globe for her role in Revolutionary Road. Read more about Kate Winslet
