Winslet also commented on the media depiction of the queer relationship at the center of her latest movie, Ammonite, in which she stars alongside Saoirse Ronan. "I have been asked so, so many times about the intimate scenes in Ammonite, way more than I have ever been asked about any heterosexual love scene before.

Kate Winslet struggled with her confidence due to the "critical and horrible" body shaming she dealt with in her twenties.

After starring roles in Hamlet and Titanic in the late 90s, Winslet endured a barrage of body shaming from the tabloid media and people like Joan Rivers, who joked that "If Kate Winslet had dropped a few pounds, the Titanic would never have sunk."

Reflecting on that time now, Winslet, 45, told The Guardian, "In my 20s, people would talk about my weight a lot. And I would be called to comment on my physical self. Well, then I got this label of being ballsy and outspoken. No, I was just defending myself."

"It damaged my confidence," she said. "I didn't want to go to Hollywood because I remember thinking, 'God, if this is what they're saying to me in England, then what will happen when I get there?' Also, it tampers with your evolving impression of what's beautiful, you know? I did feel very on my own. For the simple reason that nothing can really prepare you for… that."

"Do you remember that period in history when suddenly female tennis players became extraordinarily vocal and much more muscular than we'd ever seen them before? Well, I suddenly feel like that's happening in the acting world," she told The Guardian. "Partly because we are emerging from this spectacular #MeToo period, but also because women are feeling an inherent sense of connection with each other. We're less afraid to say what we think now."

And in Winslet's case, she learned to stop caring about the criticism as soon as her first child, daughter Mia Threapleton, was born in 2000.

"I had Mia when I was 25. And so all that s--t just kind of…evaporated," she said, waving her hand.

Winslet has said that the experience also taught her to raise Mia with a strong sense of body positivity.

"I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, 'We are so lucky we have a shape. We're so lucky we're curvy. We're so lucky that we've got good bums.' And she'll say, 'Mummy, I know, thank God,' " Winslet said in 2015. "It's paying off."
