Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes announce they have separated

March 15, 2010

(ChattahBox) –  Perennial Oscar-nominee and “Titanic” star Kate Winslet and her director husband Sam Mendes are calling it quits after nearly seven-year of marriage.

“Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year,” their lawyers say in a statement. “The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement.”Winslet, 34, married Mendes, 44, in a small, low-key ceremony in the Caribbean in May 2003. They have a son Joe, 6. Winslet was previously wed to Director Jim Threapleton, with whom she has a daughter, Mia, 9. The statement said both she and Mendes were “fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children.”

Mendes, an acclaimed stage and film director, won the coveted best director Oscar for “American Beauty.”  Ironically he directed his wife in “Revolutionary Road,” a recent film about a crumbling marriage that reunited Winslet with her “Titanic” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.
