Kate Winslet has long been vocal about not wanting her face to be heavily photoshopped in magazine spreads. Now, she takes things a step further and puts a 'no retouch' clause in her contract with Lancôme and parent company L'Oréal. We think it's a brave move we could all learn from.

At the ELLE Women in Hollywood event, she told E! News about the contractual agreement where no changes can be made to her face in her beauty endorsement ad campaigns. "I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it's a hope that other people might follow suit," noted Kate, when asked why she took the stance. Watch the full interview vid below. 

She said it comes from a feeling of responsibility to "the younger generation of women" who "do look to magazines," she said. "I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they've got to have strong leaders. We're all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me," mused Kate.

The 40-year-old actress has also made statements in the past expressing her annoyance at being heavily airbrushed on movie posters and magazine covers. She's proud of her body just as it is, so take a big cue ladies.
