Kate Winslet: Divorce Details

Posted Tuesday March 16, 2010 11:40 AM GMT

On Monday, it was announced that after seven years of marriage Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes have called it quits.

"She felt bored," a friend of the couple told the NY Daily News. "When Sam isn't working, he'd just as soon stay home. Kate loves going out. ... She was the one pushing for the divorce."

Continuing to give reasons for the parting, the friend adds, "They've been pretty much living separate lives since the end of the summer. They realized some time ago that they were not a good fit. They were more like brother and sister."

The mutual friend then tells, “The divorce is "amicable, civilized, very British.”

Winslet, 34, was on vacation in sunny Mexico when a London law firm announced the split while Mendes, 44, also could not be reached for comment.

Kate is like a free bird

I adore her! I believe she'll be better alone. Kate is like a free bird. I like movies where she acts. I believe it the pic of a talent if you can play different characters, Kate can and I like her for this a lot!
