London (ANI): Leonardo DiCaprio is helping pal Kate Winslet deal
with her marriage breakdown, it has emerged. DiCaprio and Winslet
rose to fame playing lovers in Titanic and were reunited
on screen two years ago in Revolutionary Road directed by
her husband Sam Mendes.
It has been claimed that the actress" relationship with Mendes,
44, suffered on set and eventually led to their break-up. The
couple separated several months ago and made the split official on
Monday. However, DiCaprio has become a shoulder to cry on as cracks
appeared in her six-year marriage.
"Leo and Kate have been like brother and sister since they
starred in Titanic together," the Sun quoted a source as
saying. "And since Kate's marriage started to go south, around the
time they were filming Revolutionary Road, they've got
closer again. Kate has always really adored Leo and feels like she
can tell him anything."
"They were so young when Titanic came out, so it's fair
to say they basically grew up together, professionally at least.
They were thrust into stardom together and were the only people who
knew what the other was going through. He's been a rock for her,"
the source added.
