Hollywood actress Kate Winslet steps out with new boyfriend
London: Kate Winslet has been pictured for the first time with rumoured boyfriend, model Louis Dowler.
The Academy award winning actress had announced her separation from second husband, `Revolutionary Road` director Sam Mendes, five months ago.
The 34-year-old `Titanic` star was photographed enjoying an afternoon of exercise with the handsome British model and her six-year-old son Joe in New York City, reported Daily Mail online.
While Winslet rode on a bicycle, with Joe on the back, Dowler, 34, showed his athletic prowess by running alongside her shirtless.
The couple are said to have become inseparable in recent months after meeting through mutual friends at a party.
The 6ft tall model, has starred in several high-profile modelling campaigns including Burberry, Paul Smith and Paco Rabanne.
"They`ve been on lots of dates and get on really well. It`s early days for them but they enjoy each other`s company," said a source close to the actress.
Winslet`s burgeoning romance comes five months after she and Mendes announced they were separating after seven years of marriage.
They released a statement shortly after the Oscars, which Winslet attended alone, admitted they were splitting, but said that "both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children."
Mendes and Winslet started dating in October 2001, just a month after she announced her separation from first husband Jim Threapleton after three years of marriage.
Last month, Winslet and Mendes` representative denied reports the couple were attempting a reconciliation.
