Even before acquiring global fame, Kate was in a long-term relationship with Stephen Tredre, an actor-writer whom she dated for five years. After filming Titanic, he died of bone cancer, leaving Kate broken hearted and depressed. During one of the darkest moments in her life, Kate found a new friend in Leonardo DiCaprio, her co-star in the movie. Since then, the two have become the best of friends and later worked together for another on-screen partnership. Libra will do everything to please her friends and loved ones. Libra needs constant attention and thirsts for appreciation and love.
After ending an on and off relationship with Rufus Sewell, Kate met director Jim Threapleton. Both shared a common desire for making films, which instantly drew them together. On November 22, 1998, the couple was married in a very private ceremony attended by their closest friends. Although they were blessed with a child two years after, the couple divorced in 2001. Libra is a sign of independency and is not keen in losing her identity in any relationship. Even though Libras are attached to their partners, they still manage to maintain a very active social life.
After her first divorce, Winslet began a relationship with Sam Mendes, and married him on May 24, 2003 on the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean. Citing irreconcilable differences, the couple filed for divorce on March 2010. Both remained good friends and share custody of their child.
