insists she was chosen as the spokesperson for cosmetic giant Lancome because of her reputation as a "real woman". The Little Children
star was named as the face of the Tresor fragrance in Paris on Monday, taking over from fellow actress Isabella Rossellini
, who previously held the role.
And Winslet admits she only agreed to represent the brand because Lancome didn't just want her for her good looks.
She says, "I didn't feel that I was just being asked to be the face of something. It was me as a person (and my message to women) about being real in who you are and comfortable in your skin."
Previous star faces for Lancome include Uma Thurman
and movie hunk Clive Owen
