Kate Winslet News (With Gratuitous Leo References)!

Unfortunately, we have no interesting Leonardo DiCaprio tidbits to share with you today. Fortunately, we do have a rather lively item about Kate Winslet, who co-starred with Leo in “Titanic,” meaning we’re within our rights to drop Leo‘s name many, many times in this story!

Good for us!

Kate Winslet Anyway, about Kate Winslet — she’s pregnant, today’s Hollywood Reporter says. The 24-year-old two-time Oscar nominee has been wed to filmmaker James Threapleton since November 1998. This is to be their first child.

No word on Leo‘s reaction. Also no word if Leo heard the news, if Leo cares or if Leo plans to dine in or out tonight.


As for Winslet, the actress isn’t pulling off the career track for the mommy track. The Reporter says she’s currently in final talks to star in the historical drama “Enigma” for director Michael Apted (“The World Is Not Enough“). Shooting is scheduled to begin in the spring — meaning the production would wrap before Winslet‘s next planned production, her baby. Producers on the project include Mick Jagger, of the formerly rockin’ Rolling Stones and Lorne Michaels of the formerly funny “Saturday Night Live.”

Leo is not involved in “Enigma.”

The British-born Winslet, who became a name brand on these shores after co-starring with Leo(!) in 1997’s “Titanic,” currently can be seen on screen in “Holy Smoke!,” with Harvey Keitel. In “Titanic,” Winslet and Leo played young lovers Rose and Jack. She got an Academy Award nomination out of the whole deal; he didn’t.

Winslet hubby Threapleton has worked as an assistant director on films such as “The Mummy.”

Leo was not in “The Mummy.”
