Lovelorn Kate Winslet Splits from Rebound Boyfriend

Kate Winslet has found success on the big screen, but she can’t find love in her personal life. The 35-year-old actress has reportedly split from boyfriend Louis Dowler, a strapping male model.

Over the summer they seemed to be the perfect couple. They were spotted out and about in New York City, where Winslet lives, jogging, bicycling and seemingly inseparable.

But four months on the romance is over and Kate has said she wants to be alone, according to London’s Daily Mail.

Winslet and film director Sam Mendes, 45, ended their seven-year marriage in March, and the Oscar-winning actress met Dowler shortly afterward.

Those close to the pair say it was a classic case of love on the rebound, The Mail reports.

The split came while Winslet  is in Chicago shooting the Steven Soderbergh movie “Contagion.”

“Louis was just the tonic Kate needed after her painful split from Sam and they had a wonderful time,” a friend told the paper.

‘However, they have realized their relationship isn’t working and Kate needs space to be on her own.

She is very grateful to Louis for helping her pick her life back up after her marriage ended and they had a lot of fun together, but she felt it had come to an end and wants to concentrate on her career and children.”

Winslet has a six-year-old son Joe with Mendes, and a daughter Mia, 10, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, also a film director.
