She's spoken about body image in Hollywood in the past, and now actress Kate Winslet is railing against plastic surgery too.
The Oscar-winning actress says she has joined forces with friends and fellow Oscar-winners, Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to form what she calls the, "British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League," reports The Telegraph.
"I will never give in," Winslet told the paper. "It [cosmetic surgery] goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty ... I am an actress, I don't want to freeze the expressions of my face."
Emma Thompson also weighed in on their league explaining, "I'm not fiddling about with myself. We're in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60."
The British actresses may have formed an actual league but they aren't the only ones in Hollywood fed up with cosmetic surgery.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly told a German edition of OK! , " And I still refuse to use silicone, Botox or other of those gimmicks out of pure vanity," but she conceded, "but a breast correction after breast feeding — why not?"
And actress Salma Hayek, who is on the cover of the September issue of Allure magazine, also spoke candidly about her thoughts on plastic surgery.
She told the magazine, "I've never had anything on my face -- I've never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing. I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. It’s [plastic surgery] like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”
