Alright naysayers. Kate Winslet is here to prove you wrong.

Kate — who was told that she would never make it as an actress by her drama teacher at the age of 14 — recently took home the Best Supporting Actress Award at the recent British Academy Film Awards held in London.

Kate hit the red carpet in an asymmetrical structured dress by Antonio Berardi.

The “Titanic” star dressed the one-shouldered frock up with jewelry from David Morris, a red Jimmy Choo ruffled clutch and the Jimmy Choo “Karmel” pumps in black.

In the winners room, Kate said that when she was a teenager, her drama teacher told her that she would “do okay” if she “was happy to settle for the fat girl parts.”

The actress raised up her trophy afterwards and hilariously quipped, “Look at me now.”
