Kate Winslet For Harper’s Bazaar US August 2009

Kate Winslet is very much a girls girl. I don’t think I have ever hear a bad word said against her. Everyone loves her, and what’s not to love. She is beautiful, down-to-earth and refreshing honest.

These traits make her the perfect cover girl for Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2009 issue.

On the newsstand cover – which I prefer to the subscriber cover below – she looks gorgeous wearing a Michael Kors white crepe one-shouldered dress. Inside the issue she talks about her reputation, drugs, her breasts and nudity. Here are some extracts:

On her breasts: “If people are noticing my boobs in a movie and saying they do what real boobs do, then that’s great. I’ll be 34 in October. I can’t keep getting away with it… people have seen enough of my bum and my boobs. I have to put them back.”

On her Oscar moment: “I wanted to run over to my parents and do one of those Wimbledon moments when the person jumps from the court and leaps over the audience and the bleachers. I did have the urge to do that.”

On having a good reputation: “When everyone was out getting plastered, I didn’t do all of that. I was working. I was doing life. Now that I look back, I feel very lucky. I’ve never taken drugs, never been offered cocaine.”

On being the face of Lancome face: “I really thought, me? Seriously. Because I think what you feel like as a teenager never really goes away. If you were teased for being fat or thin or having bad teeth, you’re always insecure about that particular area of yourself. So I’ve never thought of myself as any kind of beauty, iconic or otherwise”

On the constant speculation about her weight: “I’ve heard, ‘Oh, she’s toned and she’s lost weight,’ but I am exactly the same as I’ve always been. The one thing that had to go during awards season was exercise. People would say to me, ‘Oh, come on …’ like I was lying about it! Some may find it hard to believe it, but I don’t care about that stuff.”

The August issue of Harper’s Bazaar is on sale now.

    She annoys me so much – says she came from poor working class family when she went to a priavte school, says she is against air brushing then lets magazines do it to her pictures…

    She looks great, as usual. I love the Chrysler building in the background of the subscriber’s cover.

    Kate is my absolute favorite actress. She always seems so down to earth. My one wish for her style wise is that she would be a little more adventuresome with color. Obviously this is a spread so she didn’t pick, but I feel like she usually sticks with black or grey.

    I saw this a couple of days ago, I was wondering when you would post it up. She looks great. That Ralph Lauren dress looks so good on her and I love the spread.

    Back during the Titanic days, Kate didn’t do it for me but my, my the woman is just gorgeous now. Blonde is her colour and she just has that aura about her.
    And I like her because it’s like she doesn’t even realize it lol.

    I like her, but I hate it when she overdoes the whole “I’m normal.” thing.

    Well to be fair, I think a lot of people have become annoyed by her in the last year, with her whining all the time about how bad she wanted an Oscar.

    But that’s got nothing to do with the photos and she looks beautiful. 🙂
