Kate Winslet is widely regarded as the epitome of timeless beauty, but she says she was bullied as a teenager for being “chubby!”
Speaking on the Today show, she said “I was kind of bullied when I was younger, actually at school. For being chubby.”
“I had girls who were envious of me because I was acting a little bit as a teenager,” she added before saying that she now gets he revenge by simply living a “really happy life.”
“This is my revenge. Right here, this lovely career I have been blessed with. I have healthy children,” she said. “You know, I have a really happy life and, to me, it’s like, ‘Well, look at me now girls!’”
Now, even Winslet’s teenage daughter Mia (15) is envious of her, she jokingly added while talking about her The Dressmaker co-star Liam Hemsworth.
“Because I’m not a Google person, I didn’t even know how old Liam (Hemsworth) is. I mean I know he’s not 30, which probably explains why my teenage daughter was so envious of me.”
“[Mia] said, ‘Mum, if you don’t let me come to that set, I’m never going to speak to you again.’”
Forget the bullies, Kate. You’re winning at life!
