Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have indeed a very deep relationship. “Leo and I are kindred spirits, we’re cut from the same cloth”, Kate once explained. “We’re like one of those old couples in When Harry Met Sally”, added Leo.
Ever since they co-starred in ‘Titanic’, 13 years ago, their friendship grew and became very strong. Now that Kate is facing the divorce from her husband of nearly seven years, director Sam Mendes, Leo is there for her. But rumors, quoted by OK!Magazine, say the former co-stars’ “intense bond” has gone beyond friendship. They add that, two years ago, when Leo and Kate reunited on screen in ‘Revolutionary Road’, Sam (who directed the movie) got jealous. “Kate became closer to Leo than ever. And that became a problem: The more she drifted from Sam, the closer she got to Leo”, one source reveals.
Now, about the rumored affair, The Enquirer is running a similar story. “There’s no question that Kate’s openly loved Leo for a very long time, and her feelings for him drove a wedge between her and Sam. Kate and Leo talk on the phone all of the time, and she opens up to him about absolutely everything. I think her relationship with Leo has made things with Sam unfixable. They basically grew up together. When Leo needs advice on something, he turns to Kate. He says she knows him better than he knows himself. Kate knew her husband always sensed her closeness to Leo, which turned him off and made him think about where the marriage was headed. Finally, the two of them were honest with one another – Sam admitted he needed someone else in his life and Kate confessing she wanted to move on. Kate had the same super-close bond with Leo while she was with Jim [her first husband] as she did while with Sam. No other guy can compete with her feelings for him”, one source revealed for the magazine.
At the same time, Sam Mendes is already linked to Rebecca Hall. “Rebecca is stunning, and she and Sam are close. It’s easy to see why Kate went crazy over the friendship”, “TV pundit” Ricky Sky says. “He’d been withdrawn and shut himself off from Kate. She had been trying her best to keep things together for months, but in the end it was too much”, one source told Star.
