Kate Winslet on why she posed nude

Kate Winslet has bared it all for the cameras before, even coached others through the process. But the star explained recently just how photographer Mario Testino got her to strip down. “You know that his biggest strength without 
fail is making women look beautiful,” she said at the El Museo del Barrio gala Thursday evening in New York City, as she presented the celebrity favorite with an award honoring his career. “When Mario turns to you and says, ‘It’s beautiful, but I think it
 would work better naked, no?’ How can one refuse?” Winslet, who has talked openly about issues with her body, explained, “No matter what
 insecurities about oneself a subject may have, Mario makes them go away 
like a magician.” She continued, “One moment you are in the hair and makeup chair fully 
clothed and wishing you had smoother skin, longer legs and smaller feet and then Mario comes in and in that charming way he takes you by the
 hand and says, ‘Don’t worry it’s going to be amazing.'” Testino, who also shot the famed engagement portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, says convincing Winslet was as easy as she claims. “I said to her, I want you to pose 
nude for this exhibition,” he said of the “Todo o Nada” exhibit that will open in Rome in July. “And she was like, ‘Oh, okay, Mario.’ 

She said yes right away.” That didn’t come as a surprise to Testino. “Most of them I think trust me. I would never let them down.”Kim Peiffer, with reporting by K.C. Baker

I saw a clip from last night’s New Episode of The Bachelorette, and it was emotional! I definitely think Wes could be the best guy for Ashley and maybe now even Jeff, but we’ll see?

Oh Kate gonna see you naked again… Just can’t wait to see you naked…Yummy… Well you are not the first and certainly will not be the last to show off her goodies… I would love to see very close-ups of you… So you can answer the question, “Are you a true blonde?” I just hope the photographer does you justice…

I’ve seen her co’och, and trust me is nothing to be proud of.
Mario is obviously joking.

Susan on

Oh, Lord…are we eventually gonna have to hear yet again abut how she “loves” her “curves” when she talks about this in the future? She talks about her body any chance she gets. It’s not that great, I’m not that impressed…get over yourself, Winslet.

Jason on

Another ha’gg bites the dust.

Kim on

She’s a beautiful woman, so why not pose nude. BTW, some of you posting must already be bored being out of grade school for the summer….
