Winslet Knew She Would Marry Mendes
Hollywood actress KATE WINSLET experienced love at first sight the day she set eyes on husband SAM MENDES.
The Heavenly Creatures star met Mendes in 2001, shortly after the break-up of her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, the father of her daughter Mia, eight.
And Winslet admits she was instantly blown away when she first met the acclaimed filmmaker at a lunch meeting - and was immediately convinced they were destined to be together.
She tells U.K. magazine Elle, "It was the last thing I expected, but it really was love at first night. I woke up in the middle of the night after we'd met and I had this feeling in my stomach. I just knew what it was. I didn't want to stop being with him.
"I know categorically I'm married to the right man. I feel understood by him, completely known. And I get the enormity of what I'm saying, which is why I'm so grateful."
