Amid claims that Rebecca Hall was the reason behind the split of Sam and Kate, friends and representatives of both Rebecca Hall and Sam Mendes have rubbished the rumours.
A representative for Sam Mendes has denied the allegations that the split happened because of Rebecca Hall. "There is absolutely no truth to this. Sam and Rebecca are professional colleagues. That's it." he said.
Rumours are rife that Kate was upset with Mendes' growing fondness for actress Rebecca Hall. According to the Daily Mail, Mendes was charmed by her after working with her in his 2006 flick "Starter for 10," and even more so when she starred in his Bridge Project theater company shows in New York and London.
"Yes, they know each other, but that's about it," says an insider close to Hall, who insists, "Rebecca has absolutely nothing to do with their split."
Sam and Kate met in August 2001 when they got together to discuss a theatre project. and tied the knot on May 24, 2003 at Barnes Bay in Anguilla, West Indies in a low profile marriage.
