Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes, who broke up early this year, after a marriage of seven years, have one son, Joe, and grow together Mia, the daughter of British actress with her former husband, director Jim Threapleton.
Winslet and Mendes met through their mutual good friend, actress Emma Thompson, in 2001, shortly after Kate’s divorce from Jim Threapleton. Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes married in 2003 and lived most of the time in New York and the UK.
Although the two announced in March that they were separated, according to information posted on Newser.com they will spend together this summer, trying “to reignite the spark” between them, at one of the couple’s residences in Britain.
The British director Sam Mendes is known both in cinema and at the theater. Mendes received a best director Oscar in 1999 for his debut : “American Beauty.”
Kate Winslet was critics favorite last season, when she received an Oscar for her role in “The Reader” and a Golden Globe for her role in “Revolutionary Road”, a film that portrays the development and degradation of marriage in the American families since 1950. The film was directed by Sam Mendes.
The role that made Kate Winslet famous is the one in “Titanic,” which also starred Leonardo DiCaprio, with whom she teamed up again in “Revolutionary Road.”
