It’s always funny to think about Kate Winslet as a tabloid celebrity. She isn’t really, in America at least. But I guess she’s had some bouts with tabloid fame in Britain – and she’s even sued a few tabloids and magazines, and that’s probably why she lives in America most of the time – she gets treated like an actress, not a tabloid celebrity. However, Kate has been doing some Jessica Simpson moves lately. Since her split from husband Sam Mendes, Kate has only been dating one dude that we know of – male model Louis Fowler. Kate and Louis have probably been dating for about two months or so, and Kate pretty much gave him a tabloid roll-out, posing for candid photos with him just weeks into their relationship. If she was American, she might be getting a “Revenge Divorce Diet” tabloid cover right about now.
Not to say I dislike Kate’s moves – she and Louis were in Madrid last night for a Vanity Fair party, and they amiably posed for lovely-dovey photos that I tend to think are aimed partially at her ex-husband. Something like, “See, he doesn’t think I’m boring! I’m fabulous, a–hole!” And Kate does look fantastic. I don’t know if she’s on a Revenge Divorce Diet or whatever, but her figure looks great and her face has settled down after it looked like she was heavily Botoxed late last year and earlier this year. As for Louis… well, he’s no David Gandy, but he’ll do. He’s very cute, but he’s not “pretty” which is nice. Kate can be the pretty one!
