Over the weekend, Kate Winslet posted a rare makeup free photo on herself on her Facebook page in an effort to make women all over the world feel better about themselves.
Along with a message for anyone with a negative body image, or who has experienced negatives from other people.
I know I am chubby, I have big feet, and have bad hair days. When I grew up and even now sometimes, I hardly hear any positive reinforcement about body image from any female. I mostly hear negatives. But I know most of the negatives comes from the people who are busy rejoicing other people’ insults by liking demeaning post on Facebook when in reality they don’t even like themselves.
Today, I want to put up a zero makeup photo. I know I have wrinkles on my skin but today i want you to see beyond that. I want to embrace the real me and I want you to embrace who you are, the way you are, and love yourself just the way you are. Share the message everywhere and let it reach the haters and let them know that you don’t give a damn about the negatives and you chose not to be a victim to those bullies who make fun of others based on appearances, race, gender, etc.
And also share if you love yourself the way you are and don’t want to change anything about it. People should appreciate you, the real you.”
The star previously recalled an amazing exchange with her son, when he was 7, and asked what would happen if he were gay.
