Kate Winslet Untold Love Story

Today, four-time Oscar nominee Kate Winslet is "genuinely happy" with two beautiful children and loving husband director Sam Mendes. But just as her career was enjoying a meteoric rise, her personal life was sinking to new lows.

Prior to the red carpets and acting accolades, Kate tells Parade magazine she grew up being called "blubber" and sought comfort in the arms of her first love Stephen Tredre.Regarding Tredre, Winslet says, "He was the most important person in my life.My life revolved around him." In 1994, Tredre was diagnosed with bone cancer and Kate rushed to his side.

In late '97, the same week that the movie that would make her a household name, "Titanic", opened, Tredre died. Kate says it was "unbelievably heartbreaking."

Life is full of ups and downs and I'm glad Kate found happiness. It take a strong person to get over that kind of traggic incident and I admire her for that. Best wishes to you Kate!
