Kate Winslet is reportedly packing up and moving back to the U.K. She’s lived in New York for the last seven years, but her split from husband Sam Mendes has made her want to return to England.
According to the Daily Mail, Kate is in “turmoil” over the divorce. A source close to the actress said, “Kate is in meltdown mode and doesn't know quite what to do.”
Apparently Kate wants to be near her parents and her close friend Emma Thompson, who both live across the pond. “Kate feels she needs a support system, but she is torn because doesn't want to disrupt her kids and is able to be very low key in New York,” continued the source.
The latest on why Sam and Kate decided to split is that he told her he didn’t think he could be with one woman for the rest of his life. A close friend of Kate’s told the Mail, “Sam had been really withdrawn and had shut himself away from her. They then had this big talk and he told her ‘people can’t be inspired by just one relationship. For me, it’s never going to be about one relationship… life is a series of relationships.’
Kate told him ‘For me it is, that’s what I want’, but Sam replied ‘Well, that’s not what I want’ and they both knew the marriage could not go on, it was hopeless. Kate did not want to break up, she had been trying her best to keep things together for months, but in the end it was just too much.”
It seems like men in the public eye lately don’t realize how lucky they are to be dating smart, beautiful women! Sam Mendes, Jesse James, and Tiger Woods should be grateful for what they had!
