Kate Winslet Wins $40,000 In Damages Against The Daily Mail
Lawyers for Kate Winslet say the actress has accepted more than $40,000 in damages after The Daily Mail falsely reported in January she lied about her exercise regime.
Winslet — who won a Golden Globe and an Oscar earlier this year for the 2008 film The Reader –has been an outspoken critic of excessive dieting. In 2007, she won damages against a British magazine which wrongly stated she had visited a diet doctor.
Kate was not in court for this morning’s settlement, but wanted an apology “to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise,” her lawyer said.
