Director's spokesman rubbishes rumours

Sam Mendes has dismissed reports linking him to Vicky Cristina Barcelona star Rebecca Hall.

The claims follow the announcement that the director, 44, and his wife Kate Winslet have split.

Sam‘s spokesman Simon Hall tells E! Online the rumours surrounding Rebecca are ‘ridiculous’.

Oscar-winner Kate, 34, and Sam separated earlier this year.

She is currently on holiday in Mexico with her their son Joe Alfie, 6, and daughter Mia Honey, 9.

Kate was previously married to Jim Threapleton.
