Fit Kate makes Mail cry un­cle

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Academy Award-winning ac­tress Kate Winslet has ex­tracted an apol­ogy and £25,000 from the Daily Mail for mak­ing false al­le­ga­tions about her ex­er­cise regime.

The re­cent Os­car win­ner for The Reader ex­plained: “I felt that I had a re­spon­si­bil­ity to re­quest an apol­ogy in or­der to demon­strate my com­mit­ment to the views that I have al­ways ex­pressed about body is­sues, in­clud­ing diet and ex­er­cise.”

Here’s a tip for the Mail. If you’re go­ing to make du­bi­ous claims about Ms W, don’t do so in a story head­lined “Should Kate Winslet win an Os­car for the world’s most ir­ri­tat­ing ac­tress?” You’re just ask­ing for trou­ble, guys.
