Titanic star Kate Winslet notched up a victory for the fuller-figured female by being voted Body of the Year in a national survey. Slimmer personalities such as Sporty Spice Mel C and Big Breakfast presenter Denise Van Outen were muscled out of the running by the British actress, who has taken a lot of stick about her weight in recent months. For her role as Rose De Witt Bukater in the watery blockbuster , Winslet dieted down to 8st 12lb. Since then, though, she's piled on the pounds with recent photographs revealing a more curvaceous look. A spokesperson for Nivea, which conducted the survey of 1,000 people in Zest, the woman's health magazine, said that the winning choice proves that women aren't aspiring to the waif-like images fed to them by the media. Miss Winslet is said to be happy with her fuller figure and reportedly said: "This is me, like it or lump it."
