Kate Winslet, in a recent interview with Net-a-Porter, revealed her deliberate choice to pursue roles in smaller, independent films following the overwhelming fame brought on by her role in James Cameron’s blockbuster “Titanic.”

Reflecting on that time, Winslet expressed how the sudden fame was “horrible,” leading her to feel pressured to conform to certain expectations dictated by the media. 

She described the intrusive scrutiny into her life as “quite unpleasant,” lamenting the loss of privacy and the constant attention.

Responding to critics who questioned her decision to take on smaller projects post-“Titanic,” Winslet adamantly defended her choices, asserting, “You bet your life I did!” She emphasized that fame came with its own set of challenges, and she preferred the freedom and creative fulfillment found in independent cinema.

Winslet also recalled facing body-shaming and harsh criticism in the aftermath of “Titanic,” particularly regarding her physical appearance. 

She recounted being labeled as “too fat” by some, despite not fitting that description, and spoke out against the bullying and abuse she experienced from media outlets.

Acknowledging the changing landscape of the film industry, Winslet noted the progress in shifting away from the intense scrutiny of women’s bodies.

 She highlighted the positive strides being made in promoting body positivity and respecting individuals’ privacy.

Looking ahead, Winslet is set to return to HBO in the political satire “The Regime” following the acclaim of her role in “Mare of Easttown.” Her candid insights offer a glimpse into the challenges of navigating fame and the importance of staying true to oneself amidst the pressures of Hollywood.
