"In my 20s, people would talk about my weight a lot," the 45-year-old Oscar winner says in an interview with the Guardian. "And I would be called to comment on my physical self. Well, then I got this label of being ballsy and outspoken. No, I was just defending myself.”

The Titanic star tells the newspaper that she recently re-read some articles written about her when she was still a teenager and was surprised by how "cruel" the discussion about her weight was in the media.
