Kate Winslet "shakes her butt" at her young daughter to promote a healthy body image.

The stunning actress has ten-year-old daughter Mia Honey with ex-husband Jim Threapleton. She also has son Joe with Sam Mendes.

Winslet is renowned for embracing her womanly curves, and hopes to pass her positive body image on to her children.

"I accept my body. I accept how I am and make the best of what I am given. Children orientate towards examples. That's why I talk solely positive about my body in front of my daughter. I say things like 'Hey, look at my strong arms!' Or I shake my butt and say 'Look at my fabulous butt!' I do that deliberately," she explained in an interview with German magazine Brigitte.

Winslet is dismayed at the fact that she didn't have anybody to aspire to as a youngster. The beauty is adamant Mia will.

"When I was growing up there wasn't one woman in my environment who I heard saying something positive about her body. Everything I heard was negative, negative, negative," she said.

"My daughter shall grow up in an environment in which everything of her appearance is just right."
