Kate Winslet, Sam Mendes are getting divorced



Tbd-katewinslet031610 In a move designed to shake our faith in happy marriages, Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes are splitting up seven years after their wedding, People reports. And we try so hard to load up the first part of the week with good news, too.

"Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year," the couple's lawyers 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."?

These two have one kid together, Joe, and Kate has a daughter, Mia, with ex-husband Jim Threapleton. Winslet, 35, started dating director Mendes in 2001 and married him in 2003. And they looked so happy at the Oscars last year, too. Of course, she won that year.
