Kate Winslet: I don't want to look 'fantastic' after giving birth

Kate Winslet doesn't want to look "fantastic" after giving birth.

The 'A Little Chaos' star - who has 16-month-old Bear Blaze with husband Ned Rocknroll - says she is only just getting back to how she was before giving birth and thinks it's "sick" if women get back to their original shape too quickly after having a child.

She said: "It's getting worse because people keep talking about it, they keep saying, 'Look how great she looks three weeks post-baby. Wow, fantastic.' Not wow fantastic, wow sick. That's not right, that's not possible.

"My little boy is 16-months-old now and it's only in the last three or four months, honestly, that I've felt truly and completely back to where I was before I had him. That is the right way around.

"A lot of focus has been put on it its how you feel, your own health and your family, the health of your baby. Those things are important."

The 39-year-old actress - who also has Mia, 14 and Joe, 11, from previous relationships - also admitted she is a fan of feeding a baby naturally and says she eats a lot so she is able to provide for her little one.

She added to Stylist magazine: "When you are breastfeeding, to be perfectly honest with you, you have to eat a lot otherwise you can't do it.

"I get quite passionate about that topic. I've been asked about my breasts a lot because they are very visible and I was pregnant while I was making the film so they are huge."
