Julia Roberts and Benjamin Bratt broke up. Halle Berry and Eric Benet same. Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe.

Now Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes.

Coincidence or a curse? The Best Actresses and their relationship woes.

Just announced today – Winslet and Mendes are over. They say it’s amicable. Well… this changes everything.

Kate has not worked since winning her Oscar. She was at home with her kids, with her husband. And still they weren’t able to make it stick. Obviously this couldn’t have happened overnight. It’s probably been a while, and they were able to control the story on their own timing.

So she’s been single for some time. And that brings us back to all the speculation about her face. Many of you say Botox and more. I was insisting it was makeup. But here’s a woman, on the eve of her second divorce, in her early 30s, with two children, and looking for love again. All of a sudden, you are looking “righter” than me. But I really, really don’t want to see her that way.

And now it’s all for all those inevitable Leonardo DiCaprio connections to emerge from the rumour pond. Will the Titanic Ballad of Jack & Rose become a “Robsten” reality?

By the way, Kate is currently in Mexico with her children – photos are here. Strategically timed holiday to get away from the tabloid rush.
