KATE Winslet is being supported through her marriage break-up by Leonardo DiCaprio.

KATE Winslet is being supported through her marriage break-up by Leonardo DiCaprio.

Winslet turned to her Titanic co-star when problems surfaced in her relationship with director Sam Mendes as the trio worked together on the 2008 movie Revolutionary Road.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Leonardo and Kate have been like brother and sister since Titanic. He's been a rock for her."

While Winslet has a close friendship with DiCaprio, Mendes's bond with actress Rebecca Hall, 27, was reportedly the cause of many rows.

Mendes first met Hall in 2006.

A source said: "There's no suggestion of anything untoward but undoubtedly the friendship didn't help."

It has also been claimed the split came about after a row over conflicting work schedules.

The couple, who married in 2003, announced their split on Monday but friends claim they have been living apart for months. - Bang
