Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet has split from her husband, film director Sam Mendes. The 34-year-old star separated from Mendes earlier this year. It wasn't clear whether divorce proceedings have begun.

Winslet married the Oscar-winning film director of "American Beauty" in 2003. They have two children.

A British law firm said in a statement released Monday that the split was "entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement."

"Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children," the statement said.
