Kate Winslet Speaks Out Against Plastic Surgery

Kate Winslet is among Hollywood’s actresses who are famous for their curves, and seems to be unfazed by the pressure to be stick thin and achieve the “Hollywood ideal”. Now, she’s taking an active stand against cosmetic surgery, reportedly forming a “British Anti-Cosmetic surgery League” with fellow actresses Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson. Winslet has stated that the press took her comments out of context, and that she hasn’t actually formed a “league”. However, she has made statements that are against plastic surgery in general.

Winslet recently told US Magazine that cosmetic surgery would be against her morals, and that she appreciates her natural beauty. Bloggers and the media are reporting that the league was formed to speak out against ageism, and gives stars like Winslet a chance to voice their opinion on whether plastic surgery is a good fit for women today, and today’s image-obsessed culture. HollywoodLife editorialized a statement that Winslet made about “founding a counter movement to the cosmetic procedure craze sweeping Holllywood”, says GossipCop.com.

Still, many celebrities aren’t afraid to vocalize their opinions about going under the knife. Celebs who have not had plastic surgery – but have been accused of going under the knife – include Salma Hayek, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria Parker and Drew Barrymore.

Stars like Jodie Foster have told the press, “I’d rather have a comment about who I am than about something that identifies me as being ashamed of who I am. It’s not my thing, [but] I don’t have anything against it for other people.

Julianne Moore is another actress who has spoken out about plastic surgery. In a 2008 interview with Britain’s Observer Magazine, she states, “I don’t know why women do Botox. It doesn’t make them look younger, it just makes them look like they had work done.” She does understand why actresses choose plastic surgery, though. “It’s hard for actresses”, she says. “Our faces get to be blown up 50 feet wide, and you see stuff that otherwise you wouldn’t. People freak out.”  (Source:OCregister.com)
