Third time’s the charm! Kate Winslet has had plenty of love interests, both on-screen and off, but the Oscar-winning actress, 39, seems to have found her perfect match in husband number three Ned Rocknroll.
In a new interview with WSJ Magazine, The Dressmaker star dished about her husband of almost three years, saying, “Thank God for Ned — really. He’s just so incredibly supportive, and he’s so much fun. He’s absolutely everything to me. And to all of us.”
Unlike businessman Rocknroll, Winslet’s first two husbands were film directors. She was married to Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001, and they share daughter Mia, 14; she and American Beauty director Sam Mendes were married from 2003 to 2010, and they share son Joe, 11. And though she’s currently on her third marriage, the British actress doesn’t think it has anything to do with her life in the spotlight.
“I know lots of people who are not in the public eye who have gone through several marriages, I really do,” she said. “And it’s just those are the cards that life dealt me. I didn’t plan on its being that way. And f—k me, it hasn’t been easy, you know.”
Though she’s an A-list star, Winslet has managed to keep her personal life private, for the most part.
“No one really knows what has happened in my life,” she continued. “No one really knows why my first marriage didn’t last; no one knows why my second didn’t. And I’m proud of those silences.” (Winslet’s 2012 wedding to Rocknroll was also kept entirely secret.)
But the mother of three (she welcomed son Bear Blaze with Rocknroll in December 2013) doesn’t let her failed romances get to her. In fact, she still likes to have plenty of fun. After winning an Oscar in 2009 for The Reader, Winslet (who was nominated five other times prior to her win) revealed that she keeps the trophy in her bathroom.
“The whole point is for everybody to pick it up and go, ‘I’d like to thank my son and my dad’ — and you can always tell when someone has, because they’re in there a little bit longer after they flushed,” she quipped. “They’ll come out looking slightly pink-cheeked. It’s hysterical.”
