Lawyers for Kate Winslet say the actress has accepted 25,000 pounds (more than $40,000) in damages after the Daily Mail falsely reported in January she lied about her exercise regime.

Winslet was not in court for Tuesday's settlement, but through her lawyers said she wanted an apology "to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise."
