Kate Winslet And Sam Mendes Had Trial Separation

Although their split seemed sudden, Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes had a trial separation last year when he was working in the States.

The two had a falling out while they were filming Revolutionary Road together in 2008, but reconciled shortly after.

"Working and living together was incredibly intense and basically overwhelmed their relationshipm" claims a source. "The pair have a very different work ethos - Sam wanted to switch off after a long day and Kate liked to analyze every nuance of her performance. It was just too much."

Mendes went to Florida to film Away We Go and even though they were having trouble, the couple found it difficult to be so far away from each other and pledged to spend more time together.

"After being in each other's pockets for so long, this, ironically, also proved really difficult," continued the source. "So last year they both made a commitment to spend the year together and do less work. But it actually ended up with them going a bit stir crazy."

So unfortunate.

"They are both really driven and were arguing more than ever before. Kate even did a really small amount of filming to try and ease the pressure and tension that had built up but they had a series of rows over projects this year and that was the straw that broke the camel's back," added the insider.

Friends have come forward to reveal that Kate and Sam have been living together for a long time.

"They have been living separately for a while," said a friend. "There had been some huge rows behind closed doors before they decided to formally separate."

The pair are hoping to split amicably in order to avoid a court battle for custody or splitting assets.

The source added, "Kate is devastated. She thought their marriage was forever."

Sad. Sad.

    FINALLY she's dumping this fat-ass!! She should quit screwing the people she works with. It just seems to end up in heartbreak. Other than that, The Winslet is absolutely perfect, in every way. Glad she dumped Mr. Toad.

    Re: JCSTEEL – AGREED!!

    No wonder they split. He's for one too old for her. Also-Leo gave her a ring after the movie filmed. If Kate and Sam was having trouble during the filming then Leo would have been one of the first to notice or know about it. So why would he go off and get her a gold inscribed ring after filming wrapped? Like I'm sure that helped her and Sam out. I don't know any man including my bf would be fine with another man getting me any kind of jewelry. Especially high costly jewelry.

    PEREZ ARE YOU OKAY I HAVE BEEN NOTICING A TON OF TYPOS TODAY… SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO UNLIKE YOU

    Nooooo, poor Kate! I feel bad for both of them - divorce always sucks. I wonder if Sam just couldn't handle the fact his wife and Leo were so comfortable working together on "RR" while I bet they had arguments during the filming. Oh well, maybe now Kate will finally end up with the man she needs to be with - LEO!!! It's telling that they both have had failed relationships with other people yet remain such close friends! PLUS Kate thanked Leo first in her Golden Globe acceptance speech and not Sam. Hmmmmm, paging Dr. Freud.

    Re: Starlit – OMG, did Leo really give her a ring? I vaguely remember reading that somewhere at the time "Rev Road" came out but forgot about it. Interesting!!!
