Kate Winslet’s Relationship With Jim Threapleton
Kate Winslet met her first husband, director Jim Threapleton, on the 1998 indie film Hideous Kinky. The couple clicked right away, with the Oscar winner describing their first meeting as “love at first sight.” The split was described as “amicable” by Winslet’s rep at the time, but in subsequent interviews, Winslet described her relationship with Threapleton as a “mess.”
In 2004, she told Index Magazine that she had transformed into a completely different person in the last year and a half of our marriage. Kate had been cut off from her family and friends. Her ex-husband, she claimed, did not want her to be famous.
Who Is Kate Winslet’s Second Husband?
After her divorce from Threapleton, Winslet met her second husband, Sam Mendes, “four or five months” later. Her romance with her second husband, Sam Mendes, got off to a rocky start because there were rumors that she cheated on her ex-husband Jim Threapleton.
The couple met when Mendes approached her for a “play” directing. They married in May 2003 and had a son named Joe. Winslet and Mendes announced their divorce in 2010 after seven years of marriage.
Many believed their breakup was caused by their film Revolutionary Road, which Mendes directed, but other reports suggested another woman actress, Rebecca Hall, was involved. On the other hand, Mendes denied ever cheating on Winslet, labeling the rumors “utter nonsense” and “untrue and ridiculous.”
Kate Winslet’s Third Husband
Kate Winslet met her third husband, Edward Abel Smith (a.k.a. Ned Rocknroll), shortly after her divorce from Sam Mendes, when a fire broke out while she and her children were vacationing at Sir Richard Branson’s luxury estate.
For Winslet, it appears that the third time is the charm. In an interview in 2015, the actress said this about her husband. Winslet was also more open about her failed marriages, admitting she’s at peace with the “cards that life dealt.” She is, however, relieved that she was able to keep the details of her divorces private.
