Kate Winslet: Weight loss is the last thing on my mind

Kate Winslet, who gave birth to her third child in December 2013, isn't stressing over losing the baby weight right now.

"I'm not going to be thinking about my arse," Winslet told Glamour UK Jan. 2.

Instead, Kate is enjoying her new baby (with third husband Ned Rocknroll, the nephew of billionaire Richard Branson).

Kate, who gave birth to son Bear Winslet on Dec. 7, is shocked by the amount of press attention her son's unusual name has gotten. "People might judge all they like, but I'm a f--king grown-up," she said.

Winslet has always had a devil-may-care attitude about her public image, including her voluptuous body, which has been hailed as womanly by some and chunky by others.

The 5-foot-7 Kate, who was called "blubber" by her classmates between ages eight and 11, weighed 200 pounds at age 15. She said weight has been an issue all her life.

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,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.'"

But Winslet's having the last laugh. An Academy Award-winning actress who has a thriving career in an industry where being a size zero is the holy grail, Kate stays in shape with a portion-controlled diet and regular workouts at home. The British beauty, who doesn't have a personal trainer, works out to exercise videos at home.

"I have cellulite," she confessed. "I don't go to the gym because I don't have time but I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home."
