Kate Winslet is reportedly dating a male model.
The 34-year-old actress – who separated from her film director husband Sam Mendes in March – is allegedly romancing hunk Louis Dowler, also 34, after meeting him a few months ago through mutual friends.
A source told the News of the World newspaper: “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’ve been desperate to keep the relationship under wraps so they’ve been a bit low-key so far.”
Things are going so well between the pair, Kate – who lives in New York’s Greenwich Village with her two children, six-year-old son Joe, whose father is Sam, and her daughter Mia, nine, from her relationship with ex-husband Jim Threapleton – is planning to go on vacation with Louis to Cornwall, South West England, where he was born.
The source added: “They are trying to plan their diaries to make sure they can spend as much time together as they can. They hope to visit Cornwall together in the summer for a holiday.”
Louis works for the Select Model Agency and has appeared in campaigns for Burberry with supermodel Kate Moss.
