British beauty and five-time Oscar nominee Kate Winslet has won a public apology and libel damages from a weekly British gossip magazine that reported she visited California’s Chinese Healing Institute in an effort to lose weight. Winslet, who has long been a major critic of Hollywood’s obsession with skinniness, did visit the alternative medicine center, but it was for a neck injury, Reuters reports.
In a statement, Winslet said that the magazine “apologized to me in full and admitted that their story was incorrect, which gives me tremendous peace of mind. I feel very strongly that curves are natural, womanly and real. I shall continue to hope that women are able to believe in themselves for who they are inside and not feel under such incredible pressure to be unnaturally thin.”
Winslet will be donating her settlement, an undisclosed amount, to an eating disorder charity.
