The 34-year-old actress split from the ‘American Beauty’ director earlier this year after six years of marriage.

The pair have one child together, six-year-old Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes.
It is the second marriage for Oscar-winner Kate, who wed film assistant Jim Threapleton in 1998 before divorcing in 2001 – the couple had one child, nine-year-old Mia.
