Kate Winslet was told she would have to settle for "fat girl parts" when she first embarked on her acting career.
The 41-year-old actress may now be a Best Actress Oscar winner and one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood but when started her journey on screen she had to deal with a lot of rejections.
And for Kate a lot of the knock-backs she experienced were based on her appearance because she "wasn't the prettiest" as a teenager and casting directors would tell her that her looks would be a drawback for her.
Giving a speech to young people at WE Day held at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London on Wednesday (03.22.17), she said: "I got bullied at school, they called me 'blubber', they teased me for wanting to act, they locked me in the cupboard, laughed at me. I wasn't the prettiest, I've always had big feet, and I was even told that I might be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. And they would say, 'You're just not what we're looking for Kate,' I'd hear that a lot."
Adele broke records in every city she visited during her eight-concert tour of Australia.
The 'Hello' hitmaker sold as many as 600,000 tickets during her record-breaking tour Down Under, which included the biggest single concert ever held on Australian soil in Sydney's ANZ stadium, where she performed in front of 100,000 people.
Tour promoter Michael Coppel told the Daily Telegraph newspaper in Australia: "It's the highest-selling tour I've ever been involved with, which is quite remarkable after working with Pink and U2 and Fleetwood Mac and Roger Waters."
And Michael suggested Adele's achievement may never be repeated again.
A judge has denied Kesha's request for an amended lawsuit against Dr. Luke.
In late January, the 'Tik Tok' singer's legal team filed a petition arguing that she should be released from her contract with the producer - whom she accused of sexually, physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her for a number of years - due to unpaid royalties and an alleged unwillingness from Dr. Luke in releasing her third studio album.
She said in her proposed countersuit: "You can get a divorce from an abusive spouse. You can dissolve a partnership if the relationship becomes irreconcilable. The same opportunity - to be liberated from the physical, emotional, and financial bondage of a destructive relationship - should be available to a recording artist."
