Kate Winslet Splits with Sam Mendes

Kate Winslet and her husband of nearly seven years, director Sam Mendes, have split.

Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year,” their lawyers said in a statement (via People). “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 married in 2003 and have a six-year-old son, Joe, together. Kate also has a nine-year-old daughter, Mia, from a previous marriage.

    Sam Mendes was born and raised in England and both his parents are Ashkenazim Jewish but what does that matter. I doubt if Leo is interested in her when he has a beautiful model girlfriend already.

    To me it is aways at 7 years. I hear that 7 years is a tough time for couples but to me unless he/she is abusive in some form then it seems most couples just give up, rather than trying to find that happiness again that brought them together in the first place. Seven you go through growing pains and it is the time to search deeper not give up.

    Yet, it is HW so on to the next marriage.

    WhOa didn’t see this one coming…pretty sad, considering the movies, kids, and years they’ve been together. I wish them the best! Hopefully Leo DiCaprio doesn’t hop on the single mom train, then again, he only dates models LOL.

    Wow, so many people here think they know how Leo feels about her. He is dating an airhead but hopefully he`ll dump her quick and go after a quality woman ( = Kate ). That would be a huge update for him!

    So are they separated or are they getting a divorce?
    Maybe they just need to take a break? Either way it’s very sad. I was not expecting this. They’ve been together forever.

    @erock: and Hillary Swank and Reese. So every week the british tabloids put Brad and Angie Split/ Breakup/on covers when right under their noses the oscar winning British actress splits and the tabs have no clue

    this is sad, especially since they both seemed very happy together. they are both extremely talented.

    one thing that bugs me how can a break up be “mutual” surely one of them wanted to split so the other just had to agree.

    Please guys, stop your pathetic overeaction about Kate and Leo. They are not meant to be together at all. From the very beginning they’ve considered each other like brother and sister. Period. They are very good friends. Period.

    Besided, Leo seems to be very, very happy with Bar.

    Jeff Says:

    omg! I never saw this coming! They seemed to have a very stable relationship. Wow, Sam is going through all the amazing women in Hollywood: Rachel Weisz, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet… who’s next?

    kat Says:


    they seperated this year not last year.

    I think working on such an intense movie together, specially with leo as her co-star probably didn’t help things.

    too real Says:

    okay this is the stats for the oscar curse
    out of ten women that have won the best actress oscar in this decade only three are still with thier mates.

    70% of women that won thier oscar in this decade have split with thier mate…
    out of the 70% that left thier mates
    60% left them within a year.

    something about that award seems t doom a marriage or relationship.

    sould it be that women who strive to get that award seem to be pressed into sacrificing more than their counterparts.

    will someone explain this phenomenon?

    Nico Says:

    It goes to show you how nothing is guaranteed in life. And it’s not because a couple is all smiles on red carpets that their marriage will be a long-lasting one. I just hope the kids won’t be affected.

    He does look like her father. I love kate though. I’m sure she will be fine.

    @too real: Maybe it’s just that a man can’t handle a woman on top… :P
