The two were first spotted together just over a year ago, and though a rep has yet to comment on the nuptials, a source tells the mag, "They were surrounded by a small group of friends and close family members."

The Oscar winner and Rocknroll, the nephew of Virgin billionaire Richard Branson, purchased a home in West Sussex, England in September, and an insider added, "Ned is really happy with Kate. He feels he can learn so much from her."

Rocknroll was previously married to British socialite Eliza Cowdray, and Winslet was previously married to director Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001 (the two have a daughter, Mia, 12) and director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2010 (they are parents to son, Joe, 9).

Kate Winslet Escapes Fire On Richard Branson's Private Island

Aug 22, 2011 01:10 PM

KateWinsletfire082111.jpgA fun vacation turned frightening for Kate Winslet over the weekend.

The actress, 35, her two kids Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, and boyfriend Louis Dowler were four of the 20 people staying on billionaire Sir Richard Branson's private Necker Island when the vacation home caught fire.

Branson, 61, was staying in a nearby house about 100 yards away with his wife Joan and son Sam. Kate escaped unharmed, but the eight-bedroom Great House was destroyed. The fire was still burning on Monday.

In a statement, the Virgin executive said:

    "We had a really bad tropical storm with winds up to 90 miles per hour. A big lightning storm came around 4 a.m. and hit the house. My son Sam rushed to the house and helped get everyone out."

Branson hopes to rebuild as soon as possible. "We have a wonderful staff here and we want them to stay in work," he says. "We'll all stay here for the time being. There's a lot of damage and we won't be able to stick it back together again right away. It was a beautiful house."

Kate Winslet graces the April cover of Glamour magazine, and she looks absolutely amazing in this Herve Leger by Max Azria dress. The Oscar winning actress also sports a sleek little black number made by Victoria Beckham, and we're absolutely loving this look. Kinda reminds us of Jennifer Lawrence's sexy red Calvin Klein Academy Awards dress -- RAWR!

Anyway, Kate chats with the glossy about everything from weight issues to her acting roles, and here's what she had to say...

On being heavy when she was younger:

    “I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me—and it was such a backhanded compliment—they would say, ‘You’ve got such a beautiful face,’ in the way of, like, ‘Oh, isn’t it a shame that from the neck down you’re questionable.’”

On whether or not she’s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body:

    “No, I have never tried any of that stuff…. I don’t have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else’s or wish I could surgically adjust into some fantasy version of what they are.”

On choosing to play the roles of angst-ridden women:

    “It’s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about this job…. I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best. It’s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s--t.”

On what it was like to win the Oscar:

    “…I was the kid who never won the races. I never jumped the highest. I wasn’t on the list of the high-achieving. That wasn’t me, so winning the Oscar was like winning all the prizes in one single night that I never won as a kid. For me, it was an internal-fist-pumping moment of yes.”

According to a new report, Kate and Louis were introduced by mutual friends and have been spending a lot of time with each other, according to NOTW.

They may not have soooo much in common (do they have to?) but they are the same age, while Kate's ex Sam is ten years older.

"They've been on lots of dates and get on really well. It's early days for them but they enjoy each other's company," says a source.

And looking at that pic it's not hard to see why!

No offense to Sam, whom we think is a great director, but Kate's definitely upgraded in the looks department!

Kate Winslet "Frustrated" With Husband's "Close Friendship" With Rebecca Hall, Report Says

Mar 17, 2010 12:45 PM

katerebeccaFINAL.jpgKate Winslet and director Sam Mendes are no longer a happily married couple, and according to the UK's Daily Mail, the 34-year-old actress is blaming her split on 27-year-old actress Rebecca Hall.

Reports claim that Hall and Mendes grew close over the years while working together on theatre projects in New York and London. The two first met back in 2006, when she made her film debut in Starter For 10 in which Mendes was executive producer.

Friends of the actress also say Hall, who has been described as "totally Sam's type," gave Mendes a "shoulder to cry on" during rough times in his 6-year marriage to Winslet.

However, a source close to Mendes tells X17online: "Sam and Rebecca are friends. They are not involved in any kind of a ‘relationship’ and that any suggestion otherwise would be very wide of the mark.

A source close to Hall adds, "Yes, they know each other. Anything beyond that is just crap.

Reps for Sam Mendes, Kate Winslet and Rebecca Hall have not returned our calls for comment.
