Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet feels single mothers have a tough time raising children as society judges them.

"Single mums do come in for a hard time. Society is incredibly judgemental. I know this," Winslet told TimeOut magazine.

"My life has taken me down several different paths I never expected it to take me down. Not in a million years. And I know the true meaning of getting-by by the skin of my teeth, I do.

"It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got money or you haven’t, whether you’re famous or not. This is the case for all women actually, you have to carry on. You always have to carry on. And you can, because you have to."

The 37-year-old British actress, who is already mother to daughter Mia from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton and son Joe from her second marriage to Sam Mendes, is expecting her third child, the first with husband Ned Rocknroll.

"I’m a bit older, and certainly my body doesn’t feel like I have been pregnant in ten years. I’ve been more active and healthier, I think. I know more about how to take care of myself now" she said.

"I think that between 27 and 37 was a really big learning decade. I just know more, I think, now than I did then. I’ve been very lucky – a bit tired and a bit sick at the beginning but nothing major at all."

Kate Winslet also told Time Out that losing weight after the birth is not one of her top priorities.

“We have one life. I don't want to spend my time thinking about the size of my a**e.”
