The seven year itch has claimed another Hollwyood couple. After nearly of decade of wedded bliss - and him directing her as an unhappy suburban wife in 2008's Revolutionary Road- Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet and her husband, director Sam Mendes, who picked up the Academy's Best Director statuette for his work in American Beauty, are going their separate ways.
"Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year," their lawyer said in a statement. "The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement. Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children." The pair married in 2003 and share a six-year-old son, Joe. They were also raising Mia, Kate's nine-year-old daughter from a prior marriage.
Let's hope Mendes isn't distracted from his work on Preacher! We wish the parting couple best of luck in both of their future endeavors.
