Kate Winslet doesn’t allow social media in her house because she’s worried it will make her children have eating disorders.

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, the 40-year-old explained why she’s trying to limit her children’s phone and computer use.

“It has a huge impact on young women’s self-esteem, because all they ever do is design themselves for people to like them,” Winslet said. “And what comes along with that? Eating disorders, and that makes my blood boil.”

“It’s the reason we don’t have any social media in our house.” (RELATED: Tom Cruise And Katie Holmes Left Their Daughter On Bathroom Floor During Wedding)

Winslet has a 14-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son.

“Let your kids climb trees. Take the device out of their hand. Play Monopoly! You go to a cafe and grown-ups are at one end of the table and children the other, on devices, not looking up.”

“They [children] go into a world and parents let them. It takes every member of a family to be a member, and there are too many interruptions these days — and devices are a huge interruption.” (PHOTOS: Allison Williams Goes Topless For Latest Magazine Cover)
