snipshot_cp83tnhd8rt.jpgSomething tells me that magazines are doing a little more fact-checking these days. Actress Kate Winslet recently won libel damages for an article that wrongly accused her of seeking help with her weight from an LA doctor. One of the refreshing aspects of Winslet is her stance on not bowing to Hollywood pressure to be skinny. She said that the article caused her “personal hurt, distress, anger and embarrassment and damaged her reputation.”

The magazine that ran the article, Grazia, apologized in full for the error but still has to pay libel damages. Winslet is taking this money and donating it to an undisclosed eating disorder charity. From the article,

‘”I am not a hypocrite. I have always been, and shall continue to be, honest when it comes to body/weight issues,” Winslet said in a statement. ‘Grazia magazine have apologised to me in full, and admitted that their story was incorrect, which gives me tremendous peace of mind.

‘I am donating the damages given to me by Grazia to an eating disorder charity.’ The charity involved was not identified. Her lawyers said that the sum involved was substantial.”

Go Kate! Her no-bullshit attitude continues to impress me. Hit the jump for more.

Thanks to Linton for the tip!
