Golden Globe winner Kate Winslet has been in the spotlight a lot these days with all her movie nominations, but the actress decided to share something a little more personal in a recent interview.

The British actress, who grew up feeling like an ugly duckling, said she now has a genuine appreciation for her behind.

I've really learned to love my ass, the actress told W magazine's Editor's Blog. Not that I look in the mirror and say 'I love my bum,' but I'm completely fond of it.

Winslet shared that she no longer feels the need to cover it up anymore, which is exactly what she didn't do for her Academy Award-nominated role in The Reader, where she appears nude often from the front and back.

That's just really great lighting, a little bit of makeup to take care of the bumpy little areas, she explains.
