Kate Winslet Secretly Weds Ned Rocknroll in New York
EW reports that Kate Winslet has wed the nephew of Richard Branson, Ned Rocknroll (born Abel Smith) in a secret ceremony in New York earlier in the month. According to British news sources, Winslet's Titanic and Revolutionary Road co-star Leonardo DiCaprio walked the actress down the aisle.
A representative for Winslet confirmed, "I can confirm that Kate Winslet married Ned Rock'nRoll in NY earlier this month in a private ceremony attended by her two children and a very few friends and family. The couple had been engaged since the summer."
This is Winslet's third marriage. She was previously married to director Jim Threapleton and director Sam Mendes.
Winslet has earned six Academy Award nominations, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Reader (2008). She has won awards from the Screen Actors Guild, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association among others, and has been nominated twice for an Emmy Award for television acting, winning once for her role as MildrEd Pierce in the 2011 mini-series of the same name. In 2012 she received the Honorary César Award for her life and acting career.
She made her film debut in Heavenly Creatures (1994), for which she received her first notable critical praise. She achieved recognition for her subsequent work in a supporting role in Sense and Sensibility (1995) and for her leading role in Titanic (1997), the highest-grossing film to that time.
