Kate Winslet Pulls Out of NYC Premiere

We’ve been so consumed in thoughts of Sandra Bullock that we’ve almost forgotten that this has also been a challenging week for another Oscar winner. Since the announcement of Kate Winslet’s split from her husband Sam Mendes, we’ve noticed her name has been removed from her NYC film premiere Monday.

Kate was originally listed as an attendee of the NYC premiere on March 22 of A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism, for which she narrated, but her name has since been removed.

The award-winning actress announced her split from husband of nearly seven years in a statement through their lawyers Monday.

Sandra also pulled out of a premiere scheduled for next week in London due to “unforeseen personal reasons.”

The documentary film, narrated by Kate, follows an Icelandic mother who travels to the U.S. to research new therapies for her 10-year-old son Keli’s who is severely autistic.

The film debuts on World Autism Awareness Day, April 2, on HBO.
