Kate Winslet has always been outspoken about her desire not to be retouched for magazines. Now, she’s putting it into writing.
According to E! News, Winslet has made sure her L’Oréal contract states that there will be zero retouching done to her upcoming Lancôme ads. That’s right — no slimming of the face, no removing wrinkles or blemishes, no nothing.
The 40-year-old said successful women have a responsibility to promote confidence and strength among the younger generation. As a woman in the public eye, Winslet said she wanted to be a better role model by being “truthful” about who she is.
Winslet told E! News: “I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it’s a hope that other people might follow suit, but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women.
“I think they do look to magazines, I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.”
