Kate Winslet Wins $40,000 in Libel Suit about her Weight

Academy Award winner Kate Winslet said Tuesday she was "delighted" to win a payout of about $40,000 from a British newspaper that said she lied about her exercise regime.

"I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy," the 33-year-old mother of two said in a statement.

I am glad Kate Winslet stood up and told the truth. So many people try crazy celebrity diets to look like the stars based on what they read in the tabloids. Therefore, it is important to point out fact and fiction in these issues in order to protect people from themselves.
