Updated

It’s hard to imagine someone as gorgeous as Kate Winslet would ever consider plastic surgery — and for the record, she doesn’t plan to. “No, I have never tried any of that stuff,” she tells Glamour in the April issue. “I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.” But the stunning actress, who tops Glamour‘s ’50 Most Glam’ list for the third year in a row, did have her body confidence tested when she was younger. “When I was heavy, people would say to me — and it was such a backhanded compliment — they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face’,” she recalls, “in the way of, like, ‘Oh isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’ ” But now as a certified star, Winslet is happy to take her looks to extremes — when it comes to movie roles, that is. “I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best,” she shares. “It’s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s–t. It’s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about this job.” The April issue of Glamour hits newsstands March 8. —Kate Hogan
