"God, who's looking after these people?" Winslet on Cyrus

KATE Winslet fears for Miley Cyrus.

Much like Sinead O'Connor and Annie Lennox before her, the Oscar-winning actress has spoken out about the singer's hyper-sexualised pop antics, the most recent of which has seen the former Disney princess simulate masturbation in her new music video for "Adore You".

"You hear horror stories where you think, 'God, who's looking after these people and why does it seem like they're losing their way?'" she told Psychologies magazine.

"I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus, and I said to my daughter the other day, 'I'm this close to opening my mouth about what's going on with that girl'. Who is actually saying, 'Stop for a second, what do you want, who are you?'"

The star went on to explain why, as a teen star herself, she'd been able to keep hold of her sanity.

"I've just been very lucky that I've always been quite comfortable with who I am. Sometimes people ask, 'What do you wish for your children?' and all I say is, 'I want them to be happy being them'."

Luckily for Winslet, the peak of her fame happened well before the rise of social media, too.

"It's really rough now," she continued. "I think, for young actors, actresses and pop stars, it's a nightmare. They can't do anything.''
