Kate Winslet doesn't sweat the small stuff.

The 39-year-old actress stuns on the cover of the U.K. Harper's Bazaar, and gets candid about the peaks and challenges of her personal life—including raising her three kids, losing the baby weight, and divorce.

"I think it's very important to teach your children to struggle on some level," she explained. "I would honestly say I wouldn't change a thing. Even all the bad bits. It doesn't matter how [bad] times have been, they all matter, because those things shape who you are. And if you don't like who you are, well, then you're f--ked really, aren't you?"

Winslet also shared that after giving birth to her third child, a son named Bear with her husband Ned RocknRoll, she's not the least bit concerned with losing baby weight.

"There's a big part of me—now, more than ever before—that feels a sense of responsibility for how other women view themselves. Take having the baby, for instance. Have I actively been on a diet to lose my baby weight? No, I haven't. I genuinely bloody haven't. I so didn't want to be one of those, 'Oh, wow, she's back in shape after 12 weeks' women. When I read things like that I just think, oh, for f--k's sake, that's actually impossible."

She continued, "Life is just too short to be spending time focusing on things like that. I want to keep my health and my sanity and be well fed and happy. I was nowhere near my pre-pregnancy shape when Bear was 12 weeks old…And you know what? My body will never go back to what it was, and I wouldn't expect it to after three babies."
