KATE WINSLET WAS BULLIED IN A TITANIC WAY
Wednesday, Mar 29, 2017

Want to make it to Hollywood? Well, you have to overcome bullying first. While Kate Winslet may have told Leo she’d never let go, there is one thing she’s ready to leave behind! The actress recounts being bullied as a kid.

Kate Winslet made an inspirational speech as part of WE Day, a UK charity event. WE is described as “a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world.”

The beautiful actress’ nickname in school was “Blubber.” Sadly, it didn’t stop when she was a kid. Hollywood told her when she was starting out, she might as well settle for fat girl roles. Excuse me, that’s Kate Winslet you’re talking about! Kate Winslet obviously got the last laugh.

“I didn’t lock myself away and give up on my dream. I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I had to believe in myself. I had to choose to rise above it all, and I had to work hard. You have to be indestructible to do what you love, and believe that you are worth it. And sometimes that’s the hardest part.”

Don’t worry, it gets even better.

“One day, I was cast as Rose in Titanic. The most unlikely candidate –Kate from the sandwich shop in Reading –suddenly acting in one of the biggest movies ever made! You can be from anywhere and you can do anything, believe it. It is possible to overcome your fears. I learned to embrace my flaws, to make no apology for who I am. I dug deep and I decided that I simply wouldn’t listen when they said my body didn’t fit. This is who I am, the real me, Kate from Reading.”

And we’re officially obsessed with Kate from Reading.
