Kate Winslet, Sam Mendes Sharing House Of Horrors

Kate Winslet And Sam Mendes Are Divorcing

Kate Winslet, Sam Mendes are stuck under one roof.

It is said that the Kate Winslet / Sam Mendes split was amicable, but what they mean is that the soon-to-be-divorced couple is not at one another's throats — at least not yet.

However, the scene has been set: The couple will be sharing their $6 million Chelsea triplex apartment (once called home, sweet home before Revolutionary Road tore them apart) while Ms. Winslet films the NYC-based, HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce. Is There Really A Best Actress Oscar Curse?

For his part, Sam Mendes has moved into his office, which, while on another floor, is still under the same roof. That, however, is hardly enough for the "superstitious" Kate, who sees the apartment "as a house of horrors because of the fights she and Sam had there."

Says a Page Six source: "Kate really wants to leave the apartment... She feels it is tainted."

Understandable, wouldn't you say?

Perhaps that's why Kate has been choosing to spend her free time vacationing with Emma Thompson, the British BFF who introduced her to Sam all those years ago.
