Lose it: Ever since Titanic launched Kate Winslet into the spotlight, her weight has been a popular topic of discussion, mainly because she refuses to apologize for any "imperfections" and goes out of her way to publicly promote a healthy body image. In 2003, when she appeared on the cover of GQ looking trimmed down to Barbie proportions, Winslet issued a statement decrying the photo as fake, saying, "I just didn't want people to think I was a hypocrite and that I'd suddenly lost 30 pounds or whatever."
Love it: The multiple Academy Award winner has received accolades not just for her acting but also for her work in children's literacy. She also showed her bravery when she helped rescue several people from a burning home during a vacation on Necker Island in 2011. Then, inspired by A Mother's Courage: Talking Back to Autism, the 2010 documentary she narrated, she founded the Golden Hat foundation, a charity that aims to "eliminate barriers for people with autism."
Live it: Find something to be passionate about and then immerse yourself in it. It won't feel like work if you love it.
