Kate Winslet: I don’t want to look ‘fantastic’ after giving birth

Kate WinsletKate Winslet doesn’t want to look ”fantastic” after giving birth.

The Divergent star – who has 16-month-old Bear Blaze with husband Ned Rocknroll – says she is only just getting back to how she was before giving birth and thinks it’s ”sick” if women get back to their original shape too quickly after having a child.

She said: ”It’s getting worse because people keep talking about it, they keep saying, ‘Look how great she looks three weeks post-baby. Wow, fantastic.’ Not wow fantastic, wow sick. That’s not right, that’s not possible. My little boy is 16-months-old now and it’s only in the last three or four months, honestly, that I’ve felt truly and completely back to where I was before I had him. That is the right way around. A lot of focus has been put on it its how you feel, your own health and your family, the health of your baby. Those things are important.”

The 39-year-old actress – who also has Mia, 14 and Joe, 11, from previous relationships – also admitted she is a fan of feeding a baby naturally and says she eats a lot so she is able to provide for her little one.

She added to Stylist magazine: ”When you are breastfeeding, to be perfectly honest with you, you have to eat a lot otherwise you can’t do it. I get quite passionate about that topic. I’ve been asked about my breasts a lot because they are very visible and I was pregnant while I was making the film so they are huge.”
