Leo helps Kate with split

 Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio

Years after teaming up to tell the romantic, yet tragic tale of the ill-fated Titanic, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a new role in Kate Winslet’s life–as a shoulder to cry on.

Amidst the media frenzy over the Oscar award-winning actress and her director-husband Sam Mendez’s break up, Kate has found a friend in DiCaprio, to aid her in her most trying time.

It has been reported that Leo and Kate have developed a close friendship since Titanic hit theaters in 1997. The two were also cast as husband and wife in the film Revolutionary Road. This movie was also directed by Mendez.

After reports of the split hit the tabloids, rumors erupted that the break up was caused by Mendez’s alleged close relationship with actress Rebecca Hall. ┬áRepresentatives from Mendez and Hall camps have respectively denied the rumors.
