Kate Winslet Opens Up About the Struggles of Marriage, Motherhood and Body Image

October 01, 2015 2 min read

Kate Winslet is a household name. She stole our hearts in "Titanic" and continues to be a bold, beautiful and inspiring woman for never seeming to stay within societal standards as far as movie roles or body image is concerned.

Gracing the cover of WSJ. Magazine, the actress took time to open up about the trials and tribulations she has seen, from having two failed marriages to motherhood to weight concerns.

Now happily in her third marriage to Ned Rocknroll, Winslet says life has certainly been a rollercoaster.

Winslet divorced from Jim Threapleton in 2001, and then again from director Sam Mendes in 2001. "I know lots of people who are not in the public eye who have gone through several marriages, I really do," she reveals. "And it's just those are the cards that life dealt me. I didn't plan on it being that way . And f*** me, it hasn't been easy, you know." The actress married now husband Ned Rocknroll in 2012, with whom she now shares a son Bear with. He also acts as a stepfather to her two others Mia (by father Jim) and Joe (by father Sam).

"No one really knows what has happened in my life," Winslet notes. "No one really knows why my first marriage didn't last; no one knows why my second didn't. And I'm proud of those silences."

Winslet seems utterly enthralled with where she stands marriage wise today, however. "Thank God for Ned—really. He's just so incredibly supportive, and he's so much fun. He's absolutely everything to me. And to all of us," she says.

Reaching her milestone 40th birthday this October, Winslet opened up to the magazine about body image as well. "We all focus on our bodies in our late teens and our early 20s, in a way that is just not cool or healthy. In your 30s, you become aware of staying fit. Now I view my physical self as an instrument that I have to keep going because I'm a mother, and I have to be as healthy as I can for those three people who need me—more than I need for myself to be in a f***ing nude scene."

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
