Kate Winslet: 'He was very much the love of my life during those years'
[Kate Winslet, actress:] "I had a relationship that was one of the most important relationships of my life from the age of 15 to nearly 20 with a man who was almost thirteen years older than me," she said, adding that the man later died (presumably referring to actor Stephen Tredre, who succumbed to bone cancer in 1997). "He was very much the love of my life during those years," said Winslet.
Clearly feeling left out, director Stephen Daldry told us that he also had an affair as a teenager ("You know, I did") but wouldn't give up the important details. How old was he? "I'm not going to tell you that!" How old was the other person? "I'm not going to tell you that either, but it was all good. No negative effects for me." But how much older was the other person? "I'm not telling you these secrets!" he shouted before leaving.
