Kate Winslet, Star of Titanic, Gets Quickie Divorce

Published December 15th, 2001 - 02:00 GMT

The three-year marriage of British actress Kate Winslet, star of the blockbuster movie Titanic, came to an end Thursday in a quickie divorce at the High Court in London. 

The divorce decree, granted three months after she and husband Jim Threapleton split up, was granted on the grounds of his "unreasonable" behavior. 

Winslet, 26, met Threapleton, 27, on the set of the movie Hideous Kinky, where he was an assistant director. 

They have a one-year-old daughter, Mia. 

Since their split, Winslet has been linked with Sam Mendes, 35, the director of American Beauty. 

In court documents released after the hearing, Winslet said her former husband's unreasonable behavior had ended in September and that she has had no contact with him since then.
