Hollywood beauty Kate Winslet is single again after splitting from boyfriend of six months, model Louis Dowler. The Academy award winning actress had started dating the British model soon after splitting from second husband, director Sam Mendes in March this year.During the summer the pair, both 35, looked the picture of happiness when they were photographed exercising on the street near her New York home and at showbiz parties. But the Titanic star has decided to take some time off to be by herself, reported Daily Mail online.
"Louis was just the tonic Kate needed after her painful split from Sam and they had a wonderful time. However, they have realised their relationship isn't working and Kate needs space to be on her own. She wants to concentrate on her career and children," said a source close to the actress.
They had met at a party given by a mutual friend soon after Winslet and Mendes, 45, announced that they were ending their seven-year marriage "amicably and by mutual consent". Winslet has a six-year-old son Joe with Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of American Beauty and a 10-year-old daughter Mia, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, also a film director.
