Actress Kate Winslet was once told that she could get roles which are meant for “fat girls”.

The 40-year-old revealed the insecurities she overcame to forge a successful career, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Winslet, who won the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in “Steve Jobs” at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Awards here, dedicated the award to teenage girls and said: “When I was younger, when I was 14, I was told by a drama teacher that I might do okay if I was happy to settle for the fat girl. Well look at me now.

“So what I always feel in these moments is that any young woman who has ever been put down by a teacher, by a friend, by even a parent, just don’t listen to any of it, because that’s what I did – I kept on going and I overcame my fears and got over my insecurities.”

The actress has previously won BAFTAs for movies “Sense and Sensibility” and “The Reader”.
