Speculation has been circulating as to why Kate Winslet and husband Sam Mendes called it quits after seven years, but a source tells People.com the couple "just grew apart."
There have been rumors that Winslet had been frustrated with Mendes' close friendship with actress and fellow Brit Rebecca Hall, who worked with the director on a few plays in New York.
A source close to Mendes confirmed to the U.K's Daily Mail: "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. But to insinuate that there is anything further in the friendship is taking it too far."
Oscar winners Kate Winslet and director husband Sam Mendes have gone their separate ways, Winslet's rep confirmed to "Extra."
The 34-year-old Winslet separated from Mendes at an unspecified point earlier this year, a UK law firm said. It wasn't clear whether divorce proceedings have begun.
Don't mess with Kate Winslet.
The actress was awarded 25,000 pounds (roughly $40,000) from the UK's Daily Mail after London's High Court ruled on Tuesday that the tabloid was guilty of libel. The Mail printed a story about Winslet, 34, earlier this year dubbing her "the world's most irritating actress."

The publication also accused Winslet of lying about her exercise regime to Elle magazine, where she revealed, "I don't go to the gym because I don't have time, but I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home. "
Winslet, an outspoken critic of Hollywood's pin-thin frames, says in a statement that she was "particularly upset to be accused of lying about my exercise regime and felt that I had a responsibility to request an apology in order to demonstrate my commitment to the views that I have always expressed about body issues, including diet and exercise."
Winslet adds, "I strongly believe that women should be encouraged to accept themselves as they are, so to suggest that I was lying was an unacceptable accusation of hypocrisy."
The Daily Mail published an apology to Winslet in September, acknowledging that Winslet had not lied about how much she exercised, and agreed to pay damages and costs to "The Reader" star. Winslet said of the settlement, "I am delighted that the Mail have apologised for making false allegations about me."
