Girls as young as eight years old are now battling with body image dissatisfaction. Sad, right?
So when we heard about Kate Winslet‘s own body image journey, and the advice she’s given her daughter Mia, we had to pass it on.
In 2015 whilst climbing a mountain with Bear Grylls for his show Running Wild (as you do), the 41 year old spoke of her own struggles.
"When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life," she said.
"I only heard negatives. That's very damaging, because then you're programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinise yourself and how you look."
And it's something she's strived to correct with her own children, with a simple but brilliant trick. (Post continues after gallery.)
"I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, 16, 'We are so lucky we have a shape. We're so lucky we're curvy. We're so lucky we've got good bums.' And she'll say 'Mummy, I know, thank God.'"
The Titanic actress has three children - Mia, Joe, 13 and Bear, three.
Listen: You don't need to love your body. Instead, here's the argument for being "body neutral". Post continues after audio.
Winslet has frequently addressed the topic of body image throughout her career.
"There's a big part of me - now, more than ever before - that feels a sense of responsibility for how other women view themselves,", she told Harpers Bazaar in 2015.
