英國女星凱特.溫絲蕾(Kate Winslet)因飾演電影《鐵達尼號》女主角羅絲聲名大噪。

然而在她成名前,卻曾因自己豐滿的身形,被同儕嘲弄;但她並未因此放棄夢想,經過不斷試鏡、學習,終於一圓演藝夢。三月二十四日,她在英國倫敦出席一場慈善活動並發表演說,用自己醜小鴨變天鵝的故事,鼓勵所有年輕人:

 

I was always auditioning for the school plays. I didn't really get very good parts. I would often get cast crocodile or the scarecrow, I was even a dancing frog once. But it didn't matter. I wanted to be great and I was determined to keep learning. I’ve been bullied at school. I felt that I wasn't good enough. I didn't have the perfect body. I didn’t lock myself away and give up on my dream. I fought back. I had to ignore the negative comments. I had to believe in myself. You have to be indestructible to do what you love, and believe that you are worth it.

 

我以前常在學校劇中試鏡,也沒獲得什麼好角色,我會得到像是鱷魚或是稻草人的角色,甚至還演過跳舞青蛙。但那不重要。我只想要更好,我下定決心更認真學習。我曾經在校園中被霸凌,我知道自己的確不夠好,沒有一副好身材,但我沒有因此把自己的心封閉,也不打算放棄夢想。我必須忽視那些負評,必須相信自己。你必須至死不渝的做你所愛,並且相信它值得你這麼做。
