Sam Mendes - Sam Mendes Is Dating Rebecca Hall

Filmmaker Sam Mendes has finally confirmed he is dating actress Rebecca Hall, more than a year after the pair was first rumoured to be romantically involved following his split from Kate Winslet.
The American Beauty director was linked to the 29 year old in the wake of his break-up from Winslet amid rumours his growing friendship with Hall, who he cast in two of his plays, had contributed to the disintegration of their marriage.
Mendes' representatives moved swiftly to quash any speculation of a romance, branding the reports "Utter nonsense. Untrue and ridiculous."
Hall also denied she was dating the star, saying at the time, "It's the weirdest thing and it's all a load of b**locks... Of course, he's a good mate. I don't know where (the rumours) came from."
However, a spokesperson for Mendes has now confirmed they are a couple, but insists they only got together after the director had parted ways with Winslet, the mother of his eight-year-old son, Joe.
The representative says in a statement, "They are dating and have been for some time. I can't put an exact date on it, but certainly nothing happened until after Sam's marriage was over."
Winslet is now dating Sir Richard Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll.
