Kate Winslet Says 'NO' to Photoshop Once Again

Kate Winslet is an endless inspiration when it comes to self-love. The stunning actress is continuously frank about the importance of loving the skin your in, no matter your size, shape or any other trivial matter. Being beautiful comes first and foremost from within, and she rocks that ideology to its core. And in the body positive movement that is bigger and better than ever in today's society, Winslet is a role model. Winslet called out the media once again for misrepresenting natural beauty due to Photoshop, when, at Monday's Elle Women in Hollywood event, she told E! News that she signed an agreement with L’Oréal to ensure that no additional editing will happen in regards to altering her appearance in Lancôme ads. Why? She wants to set a good example for young women everywhere. “I think [younger women] 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,” Winslet said. “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.” Her words couldn't ring more true, especially in a time when various apps provide the ability to filter, shade and retouch just about every inch of an image. It's one thing to tell girls that they are beautiful and don't need to edit their appearance for anyone's sake, but it's another thing to practice it yourself, which truly sets Winslet apart from being an advocate for natural beauty and an icon. Winslet has proved to stand up to unnecessary retouching many times over. The star addressed an edited photo of herself in August's 2009 issue of Harper's Bazaar. She said, “I have wrinkles here, which are very evident. And I will particularly say when I look at movie posters, ‘You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back?’ I’d rather be the woman they’re saying ‘She’s looking older’ about than ‘She’s looking stoned.’” It's just another reason to be proud of the many people out there who are working tirelessly to put an end to the unrealistic standards set for women, and for everyone, really, in today's world. The makeup-free movements, curve-loving campaigns and so much more are truly inspirational. What do you think of Kate Winslet as an icon for natural, untouched beauty in the media?
