The Top 15 Most Badass Celebrities



Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet has always seemed like a badass to us, but there wasn't conclusive proof of it until 2011. Winslet was kicking it with Richard Branson at his vacation home in the British Virgin Isles. The house was struck by lightning and caught fire, leaving Branson's 90-year-old mother trapped inside. Winslet rushed into the house and carried her through the flames to safety, because apparently she is Wonder Woman. In addition to her firefighting heroics, Winslet is also outspoken about how stupid the "skinny" obsession of Hollywood is, and objected to magazine editors photoshopping her body into oblivion for cover photos. In her wise words, "there's more to life than cheek bones." Amen, sistah.
