Kate Winslet has opened up about her marriage split

Kate Winslet has revealed she's "soldiering on" after her divorce from Sam Mendes, but feels she is at the start of a "new narrative".

The Oscar-winning starlet, who split from the filmmaker last year after seven years of marriage, admitted she preferred to forge on ahead with her two children and keep a rein on her emotions.

"As a woman, especially when you have children, one gets so good at soldiering on - almost too good. I probably had very few moments of allowing that sadness to emerge," she told Harper's Bazaar.

"I kept pushing it away, not even really sharing it a huge amount with friends. Because you know what it's like, as soon as you open that can of worms, it's so f****** big, you wish you'd never taken the goddamn lid off," added the 35-year-old.

Kate - who was previously married to director Jim Threapleton - hopes her children, two-year-old son Joe and 10-year-old Mia, will not be too affected by the split.

"There's no way that I'm going to allow my children to be f***** up because my marriages haven't worked out," she continued.

"I so wish that that wasn't the case - that that hadn't happened in my life. But it has, so I will make the best of it - and I am."

The couple plan to raise Joe together, as Kate added: "We're grown-ups at the end of the day... We have a child together who we both love - and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key."
