Kate Winslet expressed her views about the pressures of filtered images on social media as she sat for an interview with The New York Times to discuss her new TV show “Mare of Easttown”.
The Titanic star said,”What worries me is that faces are beautiful. Faces that change, that move, are beautiful faces, but we’ve stopped learning how to love those faces because we keep covering them up with filters now because of social media and anyone can photoshop themselves, and airbrush themselves, and so they do.
Kate added, “In general, I would say I feel for this generation because I don’t see it stopping, I don’t see or feel it changing, and that just makes me sad because I hope that they aren’t missing out on being present in real life and not reaching for unattainable ideals.”
During the interview, she revealed that she rejected director Craig Zobel’s attempt to airbrush a ‘bulgy bit of belly’ in one of her scenes in new “Mare of Easttown” in which she plays detective Marianne ‘Mare’ Sheehan investigating a murder in her Pennsylvania hometown.
She said “Don’t you dare” was her response to Zobel when he “assured her” he would airbrush “a bulgy bit of belly” in a scene.
