Actress Kate Winslet has never been shy about defending her so-not-a-size-0 frame, and her latest quote may be one of our favorites so far.
Speaking to Vanity Fair Italia for its June 2012 issue, Kate proudly states, “[Y]ou know — I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks.” Nothing wrong with being willing to admit you love your bum!
Yet because Kate is always is willing to talk about issues of body image, Vanity Fair Italia wanted to know if she ever gets bored of the subject.
Quite the opposite: Kate responded that she is bored, but only because she is “bored of what it means that we are still here talking about it.” Basically, “it means that nothing has changed.”

She continues, “No, I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old.”
Got that, ladies? Size extra-small is normal for an 11-year-old, not a full-grown woman. Embrace your curves. Be “sincerely grateful” that you have an amazing butt!
