Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger is known for her spot-on observations in the romance and love departments, having what she says is a 99% success rate for her millionaire’s dating club. In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com Patti gives her take on the shocking split of Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes after nearly 7 years of marriage, and shares that unlike the rest of Hollywood, she really wasn’t surprised, branding the couple more as “friends” than “lovers.”
“Kate Winslet is my favorite. I love her. I understand her,” Patti tells Radaronline.com exclusively.
She continues to say, “From my observation, Kate Winslet’s first marriage was to somewhat of an equal at the time, but then she grew as a person, and seemed to grow out of the relationship. This time she marries a director, seeming to have a meeting of the minds, her career had advanced, and she was ready to take on more, to experience more. To me though, they always looked like they had more of a “friend vibe” and not a sexual vibe. They seemed very comfortable with each other, which is great. But Kate’s at that age where she needs something more than just comfort.”
“Next to Meryl Streep, very few actresses can be that raw. And Kate gets really, really raw. I cannot imagine her not being with a man that she is able to express herself and her raw sexuality with, and like I said, observing from body language, it was more of a comfort with Sam Mendes.”
Patti’s thoughts on who Kate should move onto?
“Maybe she can tame Gerard Butler. Because you know the Scots and English still have an ongoing war. And if anyone could tame Gerard, it would be Kate.” .
