Kate Winslet wants to grow old gracefully.

The Oscar-winning actress is strongly opposed to plastic surgery to reduce wrinkles and aspires to look like ''truly beautiful'' Hollywood legends Dame Judi Dench, 78, and Meryl Streep, 64, when she is older.

She told Time Out magazine: ''My generation of actresses is incredibly lucky. We have people like Meryl Streep and Judi Dench to look up to. Isn't it interesting that those are the actresses we all want to watch? The ones who look real. You can see their lives in their faces. Those are truly beautiful women.''

Kate - who has children Mia, 12, and Joe, 9 - is expecting her third child with her new husband Ned Rocknroll and insists weight gain and a subsequent diet plan is the furthest thing from her mind.

She scoffed: ''Look. I'm 37 years old. I don't want to spend my time thinking about the size of my arse. I want to be healthy and I want to have as much fun as I can have. I want to be around for my children.

''That's it. Those are the priorities. Not getting a flat stomach. I believe in being normal and healthy.

How does anyone have the time? Let's be real here. Springing back into shape after a baby, that's not something that's ever happened particularly swiftly for me.''
