An Oscars without Kate Winslet just didn't seem like an Oscars at all. That's why we are so pleased to be getting our Winslet fix on the cover of April's Glamour magazine, where the newly single mama looks fierce in an Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress and rose-gold Van Cleef & Arpels earrings.

Winslet opens up to the mag about how she has never had the desire to go under the knife like so many other Hollywood starlets.

"No, I have never tried any of that stuff ... I don't have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else's or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are," Winslet says.

We think that Kate has the perfect shape now and we thought the same thing when she filmed "Titanic," but at the time, critics called the young actress curvy and zaftig and their remarks about her lack of a stick-thin figure were often pointed.

"I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me -- and it was such a backhanded compliment -- they would say, 'You've got such a beautiful face,' in the way of, like, 'Oh, isn't it a shame that from the neck down you're questionable,'" Winslet admits.

Nowadays folks compliment above and below the neck... all the time. Which creates a situation that's tricky to navigate when you want to raise children who don't feel entitled to special treatment just because their mom is a movie star.

"The challenge is making sure that they're never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky. The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids -- and I can say that this does happen frequently -- is when the in-flight crew say to me, 'Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved.' Every time I am told that, I could weep," Winslet says.
