Kate Winslet will bare all for "Vanity Fair." The 33-year-old British actress, who has been nominated for an Oscar five times, will follow up her first high-profile naked appearance more than a decade ago in James Cameron's blockbuster "Titanic" with an extensive spread in December's Vanity Fair magazine. The most striking image has her draped along a fur chaise longue with only high-heels and stockings.
Despite Hollywood pressures, Kate Winslet is known for opposing the culture of thinness that many actresses are subjected to. As she describes it,
This is going to sound really weird, but I never had a desire to be famous. I never had huge ambitions--never... I was fat. I didn't know any fat famous actresses. I just did not see myself in that world at all, and I'm being very sincere. You know, once a fat kid, always a fat kid. Because you always think that you just look a little bit wrong or a little bit different from everyone else.
Coincidentally, Kate Winslet's December photo spread coincides with the release of her newest film, "Revolutionary Road," which reunites her with Leonardo DiCaprio.
