Kate Winslet Says She Had To Be “Brave” To Film Topless Scene For ‘Lee’

Kate Winslet is opening up about her upcoming film Lee and said she had to be “brave” in order to do a topless scene.

“I had to be really fucking brave about letting my body be its softest version of itself and not hiding from that,” she told Vogue in an interview before the SAG-AFTRA strike.

Winslet plays Lee Miller in the movie and when she filmed that particular scene, the Titanic star was still recovering from a back injury explaining she “had three massive hematomas on my spine, huge…I could barely stand up.”

She continued, “And believe me, people amongst our own team would say, ‘You might just want to sit up a bit.’ And I’d go, ‘Why? [Because of] the bit of flesh you can see? No, that’s the way it’s going to be!’”

Winslet noted that it’s still difficult for her to showcase herself in that manner and says it “stems from having been subjected to the most awful scrutiny and judgment, and, actually, I would go so far as to say bullying, from mainstream media when I was in my 20s.”

“I know better than to waste precious energy on criticizing my physical self,” she added. “I think any woman is better off just saying: I believe in myself. It doesn’t matter what other people think; this is who I am—let’s get on with it.”
