I like Kate Winslet
and all. I think she's an awesome actress. But she's one of the few great actresses that I've never thought was an uber babe. She can look beautiful in that dolled up for the red carpet kind of way, but it's a little like respecting someone's sister when I look at her. I just don't find her sexually appealing. Winslet has gotten very angry with fashion magazines in the past for whittling down her waist and doing other unnatural things to her shape and her aging features with the magic of Photoshop. Most of these have been American publications, so now here she in on the cover of Figaro Madame, a French magazine. And from what I can tell, she looks a lot less retouched than any other time I've seen her in the medium. Which is curious to me because I would have thought that the French would be at least as obsessed with a degree of beauty that the American fashion industry is.
