    Default Kate Winslet Wins $40,000 in Libel Suit


    credit: people.com
    Academy Award winner Kate Winslet said Tuesday she was "delighted" to win a payout of about $40,000 from a British newspaper that said she lied about her exercise regime.

    "I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy," the 33-year-old mother of two said in a statement. In January, Winslet told reporters she was going "easy" on herself and not exercising at all during the hectic awards season.

    She has frequently stated women should be proud to accept how they look, so when the Daily Mail ran the report, which her lawyers claimed was "misleading the public," she had to act.

    In the High Court in London Tuesday, the paper accepted the allegation made in the Jan. 30 story headlined "Should Kate Winslet win an Oscar for the World's most irritating actress?" was false and has agreed to publish an apology and pay not only damages but also her legal costs. The story came just three weeks before her Best Actress win for The Reader.

    "I am delighted that the Mail have apologized for making false allegations about me," Winslet said in the statement. "I was particularly upset to be accused of lying about my exercise regime, and felt that I had a responsibility to request an apology in order to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise."
