WEB DESK: Titanic actress Kate Winslet includes ‘no-photophopping of her face’ in her L’Oreal contract as she reveals her contract details in a manner of accepting ‘positive body acceptance’, reported USA Today.
Standing against the norms of picture perfect beauty back in 2009, Winslet discussed her frustration at seeing her face altered on film posters. At the time, she told Harpers Bazaar:
”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.’’
Winslet explained why she chose the given clause to be added in the contract at an event of Elle Bollywood
‘I think [young 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. I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders.’
She hoped that other high-profile women would follow her lead, she replied:
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.
