Kate Winslet accepts damages from UK newspaper

LONDON (AP) - November 3, 2009

Winslet was not in court for Tuesday's settlement, but through her lawyers said she wanted an apology "to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise."

Winslet has been an outspoken critic of excessive dieting. In 2007, she won damages against a British magazine which wrongly stated she had visited a diet doctor.

The actress won both an Oscar and a Golden Globe earlier this year for her performance in "The Reader."

Associated Newspapers, owners of the Daily Mail, apologized for "any distress caused."
