Kate Winslet wants to empower women

Kate Winslet is proud to "empower" women with her curvy figure.

The British star insists she doesn't have the perfect body, but has learned to love how she looks.

Kate hopes that she can inspire other females to feel comfortable with their appearance.

"I look like the people that walk down the street. I don't have perfect boobs, I don't have zero cellulite - of course I don't - and I'm curvy," she told British newspaper The Sun. "If that is something that makes women feel empowered in any way, that's great."

Kate, 36, famously filmed a topless scene for the 1997 blockbuster Titanic.

She has continued to strip off for other movie roles and hopes her relaxed attitude to nudity will help other less confident women.

"On a deeper, subconscious level, it's one of the reasons why I've allowed my stupid self to be so naked on screen," the mother-of-two explained. "It's partly because I do believe that it's right for the character and it's right for the story but it's also knowing that not many people do that, actually - and not just that, but I'm a normal person."
