KATE Winslet‘s “enduring love” for her Titanic and Revolutionary Road costar Leonardo DiCaprio caused her split from husband Sam Mendes, it has been claimed.
The British actress recently announced she’s divorcing movie director Mendes — with whom she has one child — after seven years of marriage.
“There’s no question that Kate’s openly loved Leo for a very long time, and her feelings for him drove a wedge between her and Sam,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Kate and Leo talk on the phone all the time, and she opens up to him about absolutely everything. I think her relationship with Leo has made things with Sam unfixable.”
Leo has apparently fancied Kate since they filmed Titanic together in 1997.
“They were very young back then, and the movie’s success turned them into overnight superstars,” the source said. “So they basically grew up together.
“When Leo needs advice on something, he turns to Kate. He says that she knows him better than he knows himself.
“Kate knew her husband always sensed her closeness to Leo, which turned him off and made him think about where the marriage was headed.
“Finally, the two of them were honest with one another — Sam admitting he needed someone else in his life and Kate confessing she wanted to move on.
“No other guy can compete with Kate’s feelings for Leo.”
