Hall's fair in love and war

When a high profile split is announced as 'entirely amicable' it usually means the exact opposite. No sooner as those dreaded PR words are uttered, rumours of affairs and earth shattering fights surface - and the Winslet / Mendes split is no different. Apparently Sam Mendes was getting close to young actress Rebecca Hall. Sam has past form as a serial luvvie dater, having also wooed Rachel Weisz and Jane Horrocks.

A source told the Daily Mail: 'When Kate found out that Sam had grown close to Rebecca she was upset. Rebecca is totally Sam's type - a thespian mix of brains and beauty.' A friend of Mendes confirmed: 'Sam and Rebecca are good friends, of course they are, they have spent the better part of a year working together on the Bridge Project.'

It seems the luvvie machine strikes again...
