Kate Winslet And Sam Mendes Split
Sad news from Hollywood this morning as Oscar winning golden couple Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes have decided to divorce.
Schillings law firm made the announcement, saying that, “Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year. The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement. Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children.”
The couple were married in 2003 in a private ceremony in the West Indies and have two children; Joe and Winslet’s daughter Mia from her previous marriage to Jim Threapleton. Winslet and Mendes worked together for the first time in 2008 on Revolutionary Road, which eerily enough described a marriage in trouble.
According to sources in The Times, Winslet is thought to have leant on her friend and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio for support in the past few months. They met when they co-starred in Titanic together and have been best friends ever since.
Though the split is apparently amicable, how long will it be before we start to hear sniping in the press? We hope we don’t hear a peep out of either of them – she’s waving the banner for British class and we’d hate to see her get a media trashbash.
