Is it a British Thing?

Most of my favourite female actors are British/Australian.

Emma Thompson, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Dame Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, to name a few.

Not only can they act, they're not afraid to be real. I was watching Last Chance Harvey which stars Emma Thompson, and thinking "finally a woman who is normal sized"
Then I decided to pop on the commentary, and it was one of the first things she commented about was that she doesn't understand why American actresses are afraid to eat.

It's true.

My favourite Helen Mirren film is still The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover. Another actress who was not afraid of her body being filmed. Brilliant.

I can't understand why Kate Winslet gets so much crap from people for her body. She's had kids people deal !
