‘Titanic’ actress Winslet sues UK newspaper‘Titanic’ actress Winslet sues UK newspaperOscar winning actress Kate Winslet has sued British newspaper Daily Mail over an article which suggested that she was “The World’s Most Irritating Actress”.
The ‘Titanic’ actress filed a case for damages seeking USD 225,000 from the Daily Mail after writer Liz Jones called her vain and accused her of lying about her fitness habits.
In January 2009 article, under the headline ‘Should Kate Winslet Win an Oscar for the World’s Most Irritating Actress?’ 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, Winslet insists the article “injured her personal and professional reputation” and left her feeling “distressed and embarrassed”.
