Despite rumors of an affair, the director claims he's been faithful to his soon-to-be ex-wife
As rumors continue to swirl about what caused the breakup of seemingly rock-solid Hollywood couple Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes, the director is now putting the kibosh on talk that he was unfaithful to his 34-year-old Oscar-winning wife.
According to a rep for Mendes, talk that the filmmaker has been secretly seeing Vicky Cristina Barcelona actress Rebecca Hall is "ridiculous."
But tongues continue to wag, as Hall, 27, and Mendes, 44, who have known each other since meeting on the set of the indie film Starter for 10 in 2006, have been spending a decent amount of time together. They've been seen out both in London and New York, where they were reportedly working on productions for his Bridge Project theater company.
Mendes’ rep, Simon Hall, reiterates that the talk of infidelity is "utter nonsense. Untrue and ridiculous."
Winslet and Mendes announced Monday that they were splitting after seven years of marriage and claim that they remain friendly.
