Leonardo DiCaprio Told Kate Winslet To “Let The Fat Girl Thing Go”

Kate and Leo's decades-long friendship all started here.

Forced to feel ashamed for her weight and appearance, Kate Winslet struggled with her body image for years.

And what important message does Kate have for young women everywhere?



Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio's True Friendship

Kate Winslet has not always been sure of herself. "I was always comparing myself to others. You see I've been bullied at school, they call me blubber, they teased me for wanting to act."

While it's nearly impossible to think of the gorgeous and talented Winslet as anything other than a force to be reckoned with, years of being teased and the media's love for taking shots at her weight did their damage.

"I was sort of made to feel ashamed of myself, my appearance."

But when co-star and friend, Leonardo DiCaprio stepped in, he had only a few words of encouragement that helped to shape a new outlook for the Titanic actress. An outlook that she was able to share with other women, including her young daughter, Mia.

"You know, happiness it isn't a search for, you know ,facial physical perfection. You know, it comes from inside."
