Kate Winslet breaks down

Kate Winslet reacts emotionally to reality TV.

There's at least one celebrity who isn't a fan of MTV's plastic surgery makeover show "I Want a Famous Face." Kate Winslet tells the London Times she broke down in tears as she watched a fan named Jennette undergo several painful procedures, including a boob job and tummy tuck, to look more like her.

"I could not believe this girl was putting herself through this because she wanted to look like what she thought I looked like," the "Eternal Sunshine" beauty tells the paper.



(Story Continues Below...)

"I just felt so powerless."

Winslet says she felt it was her duty to watch the show, but admits within minutes she was "crying in horror." "This girl had collected magazine covers with me on the front," she recalls. "And she was saying, 'I really want to have Kate Winslet's breasts. Just look at how well-shaped they are, pert and soft.' And I thought, No, darling, my breasts don't look like that. I've had two kids. It's a digitally altered image!"

Last year, GQ admitted to airbrushing a cover photo of the fabulously curvaceous Winslet to make her appear leaner. In the interview accompanying the controversial picture, the actress insisted, "I'm certainly not a sex symbol who doesn't eat."

As for MTV's subject, Kate says she doesn't see any post-op resemblance, despite the extreme measures. "I certainly don't have breasts remotely like those she ended up with," says Winslet. "Trust me. She had slabs of her stomach taken out. Liposuction! What the f*** is going on?"

Jennette, at least, has no regrets. "I am more than pleased with the results of the surgery! I feel foxy and ferocious!" she tells MTV, though she adds she has yet to be mistaken for her idol.

I think that anyone that goes through painful procedures just to look alike their idols are a bit ! Honestly I don't understand why MTV as a show like this! But I guess there's an audience for everything!

Maybe they think that promoting cosmetic surgery is a swell idea because it's big money business. Sick sick sick...

So yall don't like the swan? I mean that is really a good show. I Want A Famous Face is sort of sad in a way, because it's based on people trying to look like stars. I saw the Jlo one and was grossed out. I kind of felt sad for him.

I hate this show for exactly that reason. I mean these people put themselves in physical danger, not to mention putting themselves in financial debt to look like someone who may not be famous in another 10 years. I mean it's one thing to get plastic surgery, but it's another to try to look like someone famous when in the end most of these people look nothing like the celeb ie... Those twins that wanted to look like Brad Pitt or that woman that wanted to look like Pamela Anderson.

Kate is such a good role model. She is who she is (FINE, at that) and doesn't get crazed about 5 or 10 pounds.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
