Letter: Titanic and stunning

ALTHOUGH the take on Titanic was quite witty, it is insensitive and bitchy to keep talking about Kate Winslet's weight (Eye, 27 March). She is within perfectly normal parameters for a person of her build, and she looked stunning at the Oscars.

It is hypocritical of the press to keep on saying that the supermodels make my generation diet and get eating disorders, then go on to say that Kate Winslet is too fat. What kind of example is it going to set to us? We have enough troubles as it is without people like you making us worry about our weight. The film critics are just feeling sorry for themselves because Kate Winslet didn't win an Oscar.
