Winslet tells daughter she’s lucky to have curves

Los Angeles, July 30 (IANS) Actress Kate Winslet says she teaches her daughter Mia Honey Threapleton to embrace her curves because she didn’t get any “positive reinforcement” while growing up.

“I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, ‘We are so lucky we have a shape. We’re so lucky we’re curvy. We’re so lucky we’ve got good bums.’ And she’ll say, ‘Mommy, I know, thank god’,” Winslet said.

The “Titanic” actress also said that the reason she makes sure her daughter is comfortable with her body is because she “never heard positive reinforcement about body image” when she was growing up, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In an episode of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls”, Winslet said: “When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life. I only heard negatives. That’s very damaging, because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”
