Kate Winslet graces the April cover of Glamour magazine, and she looks absolutely amazing in this Herve Leger by Max Azria dress. The Oscar winning actress also sports a sleek little black number made by Victoria Beckham, and we're absolutely loving this look. Kinda reminds us of Jennifer Lawrence's sexy red Calvin Klein Academy Awards dress -- RAWR!

Anyway, Kate chats with the glossy about everything from weight issues to her acting roles, and here's what she had to say...

On being heavy when she was younger:
    “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.’”

On whether or not she’s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body:
    “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.”

On choosing to play the roles of angst-ridden women:
    “It’s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about this job…. I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best. It’s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s--t.”

On what it was like to win the Oscar:
    “…I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”
