In fact, Winslet says, she was there for a fundraiser. “We weren’t on vacation at all!” the star told E!. “Leo did his annual fundraiser for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. He and I went together and we auctioned off dinner with Jack and Rose and actually raised $1.35 million. It was extraordinary.”
The pictures showed DiCaprio, 42 and Winslet, 41, arm in arm, wearing swimsuits in the tropical French beachside town of Saint-Tropez.
Swatting away the rumours, Winslet, who has been married to businessman Ned Rocknroll since 2012, declared, “I’ve never been on a holiday with Leo!”
DiCaprio and Winslet first starred opposite each other in the Oscar-winning blockbuster, Titanic. They played a troubled married couple in 2009’s Revolutionary Road, directed by Winslet’s ex-husband, Sam Mendes.
She’d previously spoken about the “unique” relationship she shares with DiCaprio in an interview to Glamour. “We know each other in a very unique way, I think, because of the experience we both had on that film and having to take care of one another,” she explained.
