Keep the airbrush away from Kate! Kate Winslet has been vocal about her thoughts on the editing of photos of her. She has even gone so far to put it in her contract with L'Oreal. According to E!News, her contract states that any of her ads for Lancome are to be "free from any additional editing to her appearance." Catt Sadler from E!News caught up with Kate at the Elle Women in Hollywood event and got Kate talking about her contract and whether or not she hopes to be starting a trend:
I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it's a hope that other people might follow suit but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women. [...]
I think they do look to magazines, I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they've got to have strong leaders. We're all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.
This is not a new sentiment for Kate. She has been expressing her feelings on retouching ads and magazine spreads for years. She is even known to have requested retouched photos to be reverted back to the originals. In a profession that is built on smoke and mirrors, Kate Winslet clears the air with her sense of integrity and the attitude with which she approaches her position as a role model for today's young women.
