Kate Winslet For Glamour US April 2011

Kate Winslet graced the cover of the April 2011 edition of US Glamour magazine wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress with rose gold Van Cleef & Arpels earrings.

She was named one of the magazine’s 50 Most Glam along with other stars Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry, and Gwyneth Paltrow. To see the full list of the 50 Most Glam click here.

Photographed in New York City by Matthias Vriens-McGrath, Kate also wears a black Victoria Beckham dress and a dramatic Sophie Theallet dress.

In the magazine Kate talks about her Academy Award win, motherhood, plastic surgery and more in the issue.

On choosing to play the roles of angst-ridden women:
“It’s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about this job…. I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best. It’s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s–t.”

On being heavy when she was younger: “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: “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 what it was like to win the Oscar:
“…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 if her ambition has changed since winning the Oscar: “I have just wanted to be an actress. That’s always been my goal. I didn’t want to be famous. I wanted to play incredibly challenging, multifaceted characters. Because we are all a puzzle.”

On the difficulties of raising kid:
“The challenge is making sure that they’re never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky. The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids—and I can say that this does happen frequently—is when the in-flight crew say to me, ‘Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved.’ Every time I am told that, I could weep.”

On what she thinks her life will be like in five years: I don’t want to know. As long as my kids are OK, I think it is really good for me not to have the answers.”

    I think she looks like a hooker on the cover. She has avoided magazines exploiting her but this cover is nasty. The dress is ugo.

    Hi FC! I have always wondered why do a lot of British people hate Kate so much? Or so it seems when you read the UK tabloids and the comments posted on the internet…I would appreciate if you would answer my question, thank you! :) I love your site, it’s amazing!

    Shes so beautiful. I love what she has to say about plastic surgery…I hope that mothers read that and tell it to their young daughters.
    I admire how shes not a stick and doesnt seem to desire to be one, and not to mention she can see those figure hugging gowns like nobodys buisness:D

    I have loved her since her ‘Titanic’ days! Always was, and always will be a remarkable actress and role model.

    I love Kate, though I don’t like any of the pictures here. So try-hard and lowly produced, not a good reflection of the editor’s or the photographer’s work, or perhaps just a lack of budget. I always like what Kate says in interviews – intelligent, eloquent and savvy (saying things with the right mix of what appeals to the masses and what comes from the heart).
