Several websites have been aggregating an Aug. 27 post on a Facebook page entitled “Kate Winslet” that encourages women to feel good about how they look without makeup — but the page is not the actress’s official fan page. Though the post was created by community members, fans have been commenting on it with their own “no makeup selfies” — a social media trend that started as a way to raise money for cancer, and grew into a larger campaign meant to empower women.
The photo of Winslet, however, is real, and was taken — without prep from a hair and makeup team — by renowned photographer Chuck Close for Vanity Fair last year. The actress, who has been outspoken in the past about the use of Photoshop in magazines, also recently appeared on NBC’s Running Wild With Bear Grylls without makeup. But the biggest clue that this “inspirational post” is fake is probably the page’s pinned advertisement for “Dogitude,” a site for dog lovers.
