Glamour readers, got good taste—because Kate Winslet looks amazing, of course, but she’s gorgeous inside, too.
She talks to writer  Skip Hollandsworth about career, kids and figuring out love postmarriage.

So what does the Oscar winner think of the flattery? “I mean, come on!” she says, laughing. “Sophia Loren is glamorous. I don’t know how to do my hair.”
On what it was like to win the Oscar she says:
“…I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”

On being heavy when she was younger she says:
“I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me—and it was such a backhanded compliment—they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’”

On whether or not she’s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body she says:
“No, I have never tried any of that stuff…. I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.”

On choosing to play the roles of angst-ridden women she says:
