Kate Winslet is dating a hot male model

Kate Winslet is moving on in style after her director husband Sam Mendes may or may not have cheated on her with one of his young starlets. News of the World reports that she’s dating a Burberry model named Louis Dowler, that they’ve been together a few months and that they’re “inseparable.” For Kate’s sake, I hope this is true and that it’s not just a case of some model out for publicity. It would be worse if it was true and that the guy leaked the news for publicity, but if they’ve been together a few months that’s probably not what happened:

LOVESICK Kate Winslet is dating a handsome MALE MODEL as she gets over her marriage split from movie director Sam Mendes, the News of the World can reveal.

The Oscar-winning actress met hunk Louis Dowler secretly a few months ago through mutual friends. Since then they have become inseparable.

Like the blonde Titanic star, Louis – who has appeared in campaigns for fashion house Burberry with Kate Moss – is 34… ten years younger than Mendes.

And the British six-footer’s striking good looks certainly set him aside from the type twice-married Kate normally goes for.

A close source said: “Louis has been spending a lot of time with Kate recently and they were in New York together while he was shooting an advert.

“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.

“They have been desperate to keep the relationship under wraps so they’ve been a bit low-key so far.

“Louis has a good sense of humour and really is a lovely guy.

“He loves to surf and he’s really quite engaging and very down-to-earth. He’s a good looking guy and gets lots of attention when he’s out and about – but he’s not your typical model. Not at all big-headed.”

I don’t profess to know Kate’s type, but doesn’t she go for older men usually? Mendes is ten years older than her, and I know she had a relationship with a much older man who died when she was in her early twenties. She was married to another director named Jim Threapleton before Mendes, though, who is around her age and with whom she had her first child, daughter Mia, 9. (Kate is also mom to son Joe, 6, with Mendes.) If this is true, congratulations to Kate. I hope the guy is decent and that he’s good with her kids when and if she makes the choice to bring him around. Whatever is going on, he’s definitely nice eye candy.

    Now see? Why isn’t a guy like this on your Friday “Hottie page”? Me likey.

  2. lisa says:

    Is she divorced?

  3. saintdevil says:

    Why should she not date a hot model? She’s pretty hot herself! 😉
    And as for going for older guys: So did I until I was in my mid-twenties, because they were more mature. But when you’ve reached 34, there’s just no reason anymore to date guys much older than yourself.

  4. meme says:

    Kate has succumbed and tweaked her face, hasn’t she? Sad.

  5. Lisa. S says:

    Wow he is pretty. Good for her if it’s true. She looks stunning in these pics. Kate Winslet is a rarity among actresses these days… IMO.

  6. Linda says:

    Oh, he’s a doll!

  7. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Odd, because I just read where she and her husband were reconciling. Guess not.

  8. Bite me says:

    The guy is way too good looking for her arse

  9. a says:

    she’s looking a bit like madonna in these photos, even in the face.

  10. fizXgirl314 says:

    Et tu kate?

  11. guesty says:

    so striking…u go girl.

  12. malachais says:

    Go Kate!

  13. Riley says:

    Oh horrors, she looks like Madonna.

  14. denise says:

    Kate Winslet is so beautiful. I can’ hate on her for wanting a young stallion.

  15. grrrlgrace says:

    Ugh, this is going to have a terrible ending…

  16. Persistent Cat says:

    She’s gorgeous.

  17. Luci says:

    I totally think this is a publicity stunt from his side
    she is very private about her life

  18. Fae says:

    Good on her. If I was that gorgeous I’d have one for each day of the week.

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    Go get it, Kate!

  20. ViktoryGin says:

    Rebound hot piece. Damn, he’s pretty.

    I hate to admit that whatever she is doing to her face, I like.

  21. ViktoryGin says:

    Rebound hot piece. Damn, he’s pretty.

    I hate to admit that whatever she’s doing to her face, I like it.

  22. Team Bethenny says:

    Oh the face…what hath she done??

    Just watched her in “Jude” the other night (mid-90s) and the dissimilarity to these photos is striking. She had such unique, heavy-lidded eyes…now stretched to look like everyone else’s.

  23. xxx says:

    get it girl!

  24. TaylorB says:

    I don’t think she tweaked her face, I suspect photoChop.

    Granted I adore her so perhaps I am simply giving her the benefit of the doubt.

  25. sapphire says:

    She is so gorgeous- if this is true, the two of them must be seriously smoking!

  26. excuse me says:

    Gee, Kate’s hair looks good for a change. Don’t really care for her and don’t think the romance will last.

  27. gabs says:

    Her face looks different..Lets not get hasty. Maybe its the makeup for that shoot?? I hope she wont pull a Nicole Kidman. Please be a Helen Mirren Kate!

    Anyhoo her people probably leaked it themselves so that they can start going out in public together. Good for her. Hes yummy. Finally someone her age! Go Kate!

  28. Cam says:

    Oh, he’s hot, ME LIKEY.
    Good for her if it’s true!

  29. benny says:

    She’s looked this way for months. When I first saw a pic of her back in (I think) March, I hoped it was just the make-up or that she had lost weight. But she’s had the same look now for a while, so I think it’s permanent. I think it’s a shame – she was a real beauty. WHY do they do this? Is it to look younger? Is it better to look younger than to look good?

  30. mln says:

    Ok with two divorces under her belt and two kids why not go for the male model flings for a while and keep it light? Maybe she’ll be ready for the real thing in a few years.

  31. Sudini says:

    Good GOD he’s yummy. Atta girl..

  32. kooky says:

    wow he’s gorgeous

  33. Lili says:

    Nice rebound fuck.

  34. malina says:

    She looks good!

  35. LP says:

    My Gog she looks awful. She’s lost too much weight or something, it’s strained her face and made her look pinched. She’s far too young for a face lift, so that’s not it. Her hair looks like a trailer park mom working at Walmart. Not a good look.

  36. gen says:

    Now Kate is the type of woman who I think is attractive. Plus, hot body

  37. locagirl says:

    I wish she’d get with LEONARDO!

  38. Camille says:

    Nice! Good for her if this is true.

  39. Mistral says:

    He’s cute…Nice body…But, what really matters here is: how’s the conversation? :p

  40. Amanda says:

    I don’t think Kate got any work done, she’s way too dedicated as an actress to f!ck up her acting tool which is her face. She’s on set of a glamorous photo shoot so clearly she’s wearing tons of makeup. In close up pictures of this shoot you can clearly see the furrow between her eyebrows, fine lines on her forehead, wrinkles all around and under her eyes. I think it’s the weight loss that makes her face look more strained and pinched in. When she’s curvier she looks more like how she usually is, but when she’s thinner she looks like this. It’s not like she’s a stick or anything, thank God she didn’t succumb to being skin and bones. But she’s a bit too small for her own frame which makes her look different than how she normally is, not only in her body but in her face.

  41. Sydney says:

    I want one, I want one!

  42. Marjalane says:


    Please. You’ve got to be kidding.

  43. LolaBella says:

    Kate is still beautiful, but she is beginning to look madonna-esque in the face – especially in the second pic.

    Louis is a hottie!

  44. Aspen says:

    She looks different in photos now because her face HAS changed…with age. They Photoshop without mercy because she has prominent wrinkling around the eyes and forehead, now…the chopping of the wrinkles makes her photo shoots look a bit plastic.

  45. victoria says:

    You Guys are IDIOTS..
    They’re the same AGE!!!!!!!!!!!
    he’s 34 she’s 34!

  46. Larissa says:

    Well done you Kate!

  47. LuckyLilGem says:

    Score a win for women over 30 and for single moms!! Cheers to her for moving on with her life and having fun.

  48. Cirque28 says:

    Ooooh, she’s so gorgeous. The bridge of her nose has been slimmed since her Titanic days– it makes her eyes look more prominent. Otherwise, I think she’s mostly left her face alone.

  49. Lita says:

    Victoria, dear, I have a policy of reading the story and comments *before* I diss people. I think you missed something ;o)

  50. AllegraFox says:

    Not sure where this story is coming from…I love Gossip like the next slapper but I can tell you one thing…Kate is back to her Husband and he was in Italy with her. Fact!!!

  51. Mistral says:

    @ 42


  52. Katyusha says:

    @ Lita

    I think I’m missing something, too…

    They’re both around the same age.

    Or maybe, that’s not your point!
