British film director Sam Mendes and his wife Kate Winslet have parted, the couple’s lawyer has confirmed.
They married in 2003, and have one son, Joe.
Mr Mendes directed her in one of his latest films Revolutionary Road. They met in 2001, when he tried to persuade her to appear in a play at the Donmar Warehouse, in Covent Garden, where he was artistic director. He had already won an Oscar for Best Director for his debut film, American Beauty.
The controversial Jewish artist Spencer Tunick, whose photographs feature thousands of naked volunteers, hopes to shoot a work in Israel.
The proposal has sparked both excitement and anger among politicians and religious groups.
Mr Tunick has submitted two requests, one to shoot in the Tel Aviv Port and one on the Dead Sea beach.
A spokesman for the Tel Aviv municipality said they were thrilled to be considered by Mr Tunick. He said: "This is a wonderful way of telling the world about Tel Aviv and its modern and vibrant nature."
If Hollywood is dominated by Jews, it sure let our side down.
The third time was to be the charm for Israel’s entry in the best foreign-language film competition. While the highly touted Ajami made it to the five finalists list, the prize went to Argentina’s El Secreto de sus Ojos (The Secret in Their Eyes).
