Kate Winslet is OK with wonky face

Kate Winslet thinks an obsession with looking beautiful stops people from "having a life".

The actress was the romantic female lead in Titanic, where she enjoyed steamy scenes with Leonardo DiCaprio.

She's still considered one of the most beautiful women in the industry, but even 38-year-old Kate has insecurities. However, this doesn't mean she will go under the knife.

"I want to frown!" she laughed to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"It would be nice to have my face look normal and not slightly wonky. But that's the other thing - it's nice to look different. Sometimes I feel as though everyone's looking a bit the same. Wouldn't it be lovely if we all felt confident enough within ourselves to just live with it and get on with actually having a life and being happy without searching for some kind of quick-fix happiness? We've made an adjustment to our faces that only makes us feel better when we look in the mirror."

Kate has graced the covers of many magazines and in 2003 there was outrage when GQ magazine elongated her legs with the use of Photoshop.

The actress was amazed that her image was altered so drastically.

"Well, that piece was 12 years ago," she said.

"My daughter was maybe one or two. It was such a reality check. I was like, 'Jesus, this has been going on for years, this really does happen!' I've always just felt very, very lucky that I don't care what people think of what I look like or say."
