    That speech she gave at the Academy Awards last year made me cringe for her husband. She downright DECLARED HER LOVE for Leonardo Dicaprio She kept going on and on and on about Leo. Too much for a married woman whose husband his sitting in the audience. I was embarrassed for the man/husband. Something was probably on the outs then.
    It reminded me of the time when Jen A accepted an award and forgot to thank her husband and forgot to mention Brad’s name when talking about her family of ‘FRIENDS’. When I saw the video she didn’t even want to kiss him when she got up to receive her award.
    That one got way too big for her britches, started believing the hype. and drinking her own kool-aid. Even thought she was bigger than Brad. ahh haha hahahh ha haaaa!

    @queen bee: First of all Kate was NOT eight months pregnant when she parried Sam! And cut the crap about that whole golden globes thing it was a heat of the moment mistake EVEN ANGELINA HERSELF LAUGHED ABOUT IT!! I don’t give a damn if you like Winslet or not but at least get your pacts straight before making an ass of yourself on the internet!

  • who cares?

    I’ve never cared for this actress, either as an actor or a person. She really seems stuck up and too into herself to really give herself to anyone fully. I saw this marriage falling apart YEARS ago! It’s really funny to see her fans all up in a ditter about it! She’s like the female version of Brad Pitt, just after the attention of it all. Let’s see the next successful “artist” she attaches herself like a leech to next!

    I feel so bad for Kate! I just read that Sam was fooling around w/a now 27 y/o “actress” named Rebecca Hall from UK. I really wish that she and Leo had hooked up years ago but now I just think they are good friends. That being said, I would LOVE IT if they did get together now. Anyways, if the rumor is true the Sam has been cheating on her since 2006 w/this Rebecca person, then he doesn’t deserve Kate! It also explains why she thanked Leo last year and nearly forgot Sam. Who wants to thank the man that is cheating on you? What a jerk!

    Marriage doesn’t matter anymore it seems neither does girlfriend or boyfriend. Its all but superfical anymore and you see more proof of that the more you look on sites like this. our culture has gone to shit and hollywood is partially to blame. there are cultural consequences for this a %50 divorce rate for first time marriages and a %63 percent divorce rate for live in couples. basicly they are there own self destruction by acting this way they are immature we all know it. they live in fantasy this and Sandra bullock lets you know marriage means nothing to these people. its just who’s pants they can get in next. baicly its all about sex. And this thing with the kids is just plain selfish
