Hollywood star Kate Winslet, who won the award for lead actress in a limited series at the 73rd Emmy Award for her role in ‘Mare of Easttown’, believes actresses are now under less scrutiny for their bodies.
Winslet hopes the example Hollywood is starting to set will have a wider impact on society.
Speaking to reporters in the virtual press room backstage at the ceremony, she said: It means a huge amount, because it makes me feel that our industry is changing. Im honestly starting to feel that, that the shifts are happening. And I think were finger pointing a lot less at women in terms of how they look, their shape. We stopped scrutinising them. In turn, what happens then, is that younger generations of women, who are not in our industry, start to feel OK within themselves too.
And thats more important than anything else. Because its up to us to be absolutely being real and representing ourselves with integrity and authenticity and celebrating each other and not judging one another. If were not doing that in our industry, then nobody else has a hope in hell.
