I am a big fan of Kate Winslet as an actress and I think she is wonderful. I think even more so, now that she has added a No Photoshop Clause to her Lancôme (L’Oreal) contract.
Kate has been the face of Lancôme for a while now, and he has revealed in the Elle Women in Hollywood event that she has a contractual agreement with L’Oréal (Lancôme mother company) that her face is not to be retouched in ads.
In an interview with E!News Kate says that
I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it’s a hope that other people might follow suit but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women
I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me
Kate goes on to say that
It’s a hope that other people might follow suit but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women
