Kate Winslet on being ‘f–king brave’ with nudity after ‘criticizing’ her ‘physical self’

Kate Winslet is back in the nude — two years after she claimed her days of appearing on-screen in her birthday suit were “getting a little bit numbered.”

The Oscar-winning actress and star of the upcoming World War II-set drama “Lee” spoke to Vogue about why baring her all for the camera is just another day at the office.

“I know better than to waste precious energy on criticizing my physical self,” she told the magazine in an interview conducted before the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.

“I think any woman is better off just saying: I believe in myself. It doesn’t matter what other people think; this is who I am — let’s get on with it.”

In “Lee,” which premiered Saturday at the Toronto Film Festival, Winslet, 47, portrays model-turned-war-photographer Lee Miller, who worked as a war correspondent for Vogue throughout World War II.

“You know I had to be really f – – king brave about letting my body be its softest version of itself and not hiding from that,” Winslet shared about the experience.

“And believe me, people amongst our own team would say, ‘You might just want to sit up a bit,’” she added. “And I’d go, ‘Why? [Because of] the bit of flesh you can see? No, that’s the way it’s going to be!’”

Winslet also said that being criticized for her appearance early in her career made her less concerned with beauty standards.

“I think it probably stems from having been subjected to the most awful scrutiny and judgment, and, actually, I would go so far as to say bullying, from mainstream media when I was in my 20s,” the  “Titanic” star added.

Winslet, then 21, stripped down to be painted by a young Leonardo DiCaprio in the 1997 blockbuster, famously instructing him to “draw me like one of your French girls.”

She ditched her clothes again in 2021 for her “very hot grandma” sex scene in “Mare of Easttown” — after which she told the New York Times, “I think my days are getting a little bit numbered of doing nudity.

“I’m just not that comfortable doing it anymore,” she added. “It’s not even really an age thing, actually.”

The cast of “Lee” also includes Alexander Skarsgård, Andrea Riseborough, Marion Cotillard, Josh O’Connor and Andy Samberg.

While the biopic is something totally different for Samberg, 45, as the comic actor told The Post back in March, “When Winslet calls you, you say yes.”
