Winslet said, of her school experience:

They called me ‘Blubber.’ Teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me.

And then, when it came to her entering Hollywood, she said:

I didn’t look right, and all because I didn’t fit into someone else’s idea of ‘perfect.’ I didn’t have the ‘perfect’ body. And I would rarely hear anything positive.
