Kate Winslet Sues Magazine For Being Liars

Kate Winslet's not going to take it. No, she ain't gonna take it. She's not gonna take it anymore. The Oscar winner is suing Brit rag The Daily Mail for an article in which they called her the world's most irritating actress. Journalist Liz Jones penned the piece back in January, and is now in big time trouble for, among other things, calling Winslet vain and a liar, liar pants on fire. Jones mocked Winslet's fitness claims that while she does not bust her ass to be a skinny mini, she does take some measures to keep fit. Jones seemed to be particularly sceptical about Winslet's quote in Elle magazine in which the actress states "I don't go to the gym because I don't have time, but I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home." In turn Jones wrote, "She caught a nasty dose of Hollywooditis. It happens to the best of them, of course it does. It is the duplicitousness that enrages me and most other women I have spoken to."
In a lawsuit filed in London in April, Winslet insists the article "injured her personal and professional reputation" and left her feeling "distressed and embarrassed". The suit adds, "(Winslet) was particularly upset by what she regarded as the very unpleasant and nasty way in which the article was written." The actress is seeking $225,000 in damages.
