I thought those two went well together, a sort of luvvie supercouple.

Years from now, I wonder if Kate is going to end up as a old Hollywood legend, with numerous iconic roles to her name - and five marriages, all of them marking a certain stage in her life. And all of them entered into with the best of intentions.

What are couples suppose to do on the red carpet but not smile and look happy. Marriages don't end over night. It takes years to dissolve especially when you have kids.

Bad news, but at least they split amicably.

And I just watched The Reader yesterday... It's saddening but I guess it happens sometimes. Putting the children first was best thing they could have done in this type of situation.

^ Not sure about Sam but Kate had only split with her first hubby two months before she got together with him.

It was all over the British press and they ripped into Kate saying she was a b*tch for splitting up her family and running off with a more famous man. Her name was mud for quite a while.

I saw this one coming the night she won the Oscar for "The Reader". It must have been hard for Mendes to see his wife winning an Oscar for a movie which wasn't the one he directed (and which sort of "flunked" compared to "The Reader"). Some people have trouble accepting their better half's success (when their careers aren't exactly thriving in comparison).

But Mendes has his own Oscar! And even if he hasn't won one recently, he's definitely as well-respected as Kate Winslet, isn't he?

I wasn't surprised when Kate split from her first husband because it seemed as though their careers were on totally different levels and I could see how tensions would arise from that. But this one I am surprised by - I thought they were a good couple because they seemed very equal, both in terms of talent and career. Still, relationships are difficult to sustain anyway, even without all the stresses of fame and a Hollywood career.

I wouldn't say Winslet is more well-respected than Mendes in terms of critical estimation, though she of course has the bigger name. He's something like an A-minus list director.

Really surprised by this news. They seemed like a rock solid couple.
