Happy 40th Birthday, Kate Winslet! Quotes That Make Us Love Her

Kate Winslet turns 40 on October 5. The Oscar-winning actress has a refreshingly positive attitude about entering her fourth decade. As she told Net-a-Porter's weekly online magazine, The Edit, "I'm baffled that anyone might not think women get more beautiful as they get older."

Over the years, the down-to-earth Winslet has offered sound and healthy wisdom about body image and self esteem. For example, back in 1998 she told Clive James on the Clive James Show:

"There's more to life than cheek bones."


"I am insecure. If you ask me, everybody is."


"I'd much rather be known as curvy Kate than a skinny stick."
