Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes announce split

This totally ruined my day, you guys… :'(

Kate and Sam

Oscar winner Kate Winslet has split from her director husband Sam Mendes after almost seven years of marriage. The Titanic actress wed American Beauty filmmaker Mendes in 2003 on the Caribbean island of Antigua. They have a son, Joe, who was born in December 2003, and Winslet also has a daughter, Mia Honey, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton.

British beauty Winslet set up home with Mendes in New York City, but it was announced on Monday that they have now parted ways.

In a statement, a representative for the couple says, “They are saddened to announce 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.”

  1. @KWFcom that’s a bad news:(I was so happy to see them ever smiling and happy together:(

  2. This is so tragic. Of all the couples in Hollywood I sincerely thought Kate & Sam were one of the most solid. But it sounds like the decision is firm, seeing as they allowed some time to pass before the announcement and still went ahead with it. Hopefully both are coping well with the situation, as unfortunate as it is. :(

  3. I’m so sad! Sam and Kate seemed so happy together…I never thought that they’d split..:(

  4. Omg, this can’t be true! Are you sure about this?
    Of course you are, but it’s just so hard to believe!
    Yeah, definitely a total dayruiner! :(

  5. THIS REALLY RUINED MY DAY AS WELL!
    I’M NOT A FAN OF WHEN PEOPLE SPLIT UP AND I ACTUALLY HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE WHEN I FIRST SAW THE HEADLINES! I JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING THEY WERE A CUTE COUPLE. I’M HAPPY THEY WAITED AND AREN’T MAKING DRAMA TO WERE THE KIDS CAN SEE/HEAR.
    I HOPE THIS GOES BY QUICKLY SO THIS WONT RUIN ANYONES REPUTATION.

    P.S.AT LEAST NOW SHE CAN BE WITH LEO…
    WHAT WOULD YOU THINK? AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.LOL

  6. This completely shat all over my day, sorry for the bad language! But it’s true. I can’t believe they split up! Oh well at least Kate is doing what’s best for the kids, and what is the use of staying in an unhappy marriage? Honesty is key and I’m glad that they’re being honest here. It’s just sad because as a Kate fan I never assumed they’d split up. Sad, sad day. :(

  7. I just read this on Yahoo news! how sad! :( I truly hope that Kate and Sam are given the privacy that they need, and I hope the split will be less of a blow for the children. This really was shocking to me.

  8. I want to add, I think Kate will handle this in a classy way! Looking at the pictures of her in Mexico surrounded by people she loves and who love her, it seems that she went to let off steam and avoid all press/paparazzi. Good move for her, getting away so things can cool down. I am positive she will handle it the right way and whenever I hear of a divorce I always think of the children first. But I think she and Sam will do what is best for their children.

  9. I’m just so shocked did not think that this would happen to poor Kate again they seemed so happy. Hope their children arn’t getting hounded by the press also, i noticed they haven’t been together of late so sad to hear :(

  10. I just can’t believe it, i’m sooo sad!!!!! you know.. I was wondering what was happening with Sam because he didnt go to the Oscars, Baftas, GG etc. with Kate.. I was like mmmhh whats going on where is heeee… and there you go…its really a tragedy, hope they are ok. at least Kate have a lot of work now and she can distract a little…

  11. so sad! :(

    I wish her the best, poor Kate :( also to Mia and Joe!

    So smart of Kate to make this move of announcing their split late, since apparently they split earlier this year, I guess Kate wanted to go through the award season without any mess and a week after the Oscars decided to finally announce it.

  12. I could’nt believe it!
    I am so sad :(

    The were so happy together!
    I wish Kate the best and I hope mia and Joe are doing well.
    I hope Kate made a good decesion, but I stil can’t believe it…
    It’s good Kate waited ’till after the Oscars.

    I hope Kate, Sam and Mia&Joe get the pricacy they deserve.

  13. I cant believe that
    it totally ruined my day as well
    but i will be happy if kate marry leo!!!!

  14. this news completely saddened me. i hate that they have not been happy and couldn’t make it work. i’m glad they’re thinking about the kids though. :(
