Actress being comforted by male pals


While we were all shocked when Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes announced they were splitting up after more than six years of marriage, none of their mutual friends were surprised.

Now can reveal that Kate, 34, holidaying with her children in Mexico when the separation was confirmed, has found support from a number of male friends.

A source tells Now:‘We’re convinced she’s been comforted by someone else since she and Sam hit the rocks. They never recovered.

‘Everyone’s trying to second guess who she’s got close to, but it’s difficult with Kate as she’s friendly with all her co-stars, such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Jude Law.

‘We may find out, as with her first husband Jim Threapleton, that he’s one of the crew from a film she’s working on and it’s a slow burner, like her romance with Sam.

‘There’s no suggestion of romance with anyone else, but Kate wouldn’t split with Sam unless she had her eyes on another prize.’
