Actress and director broke up earlier this year


Kate Winslet has separated from her husband Sam Mendes, the couple’s lawyer confirms.

The Oscar-winning actress and director parted ways earlier this year.

‘The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement,’ says Keith Schilling.

‘Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children.

‘They ask that the media respect their privacy at this time.’

Kate and Sam, who wed in 2003, have a six-year-old son, Joe Alfie, together. 

She also has daughter Mia Honey, 9, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton.
