Kate Winslet eager to leave NY home

Kate Winslet and Sam MendesKate Winslet wants to move out of her marital home because it is “tainted” with bad memories. The Oscar-winning actress — who split from her film director husband Sam Mendes earlier this year — is desperate to leave their $6 million New York mansion. A source told the New York Post: “Kate really wants to leave the apartment. She sees it as a house of horrors because of the fights she and Sam had there. She feels it is tainted.” The 34-year-old star wants to return to the UK as soon as possible, so she can spend time with close friends. However, Kate is contracted to work on the mini-series Mildred Pierce before she can make the move. The actress — who has a six-year-old son Joe with Sam, and her daughter Mia, nine, from her marriage to Jim Threapleton — has been receiving support from friends since she announced her separation. The British beauty holidayed with her pal Emma Thompson last month, and has also been comforted by her Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. A source said: “Since Kate’s marriage problems started, around the time they were filming Revolutionary Road, they’ve got closer again. Kate feels like she can tell Leonardo anything.”
