Actress Kate Winslet is revelling in her marriage to celebrated movie director Sam Mendes, because she's found true happiness for the first time.

The TITANIC star has suffered a series of crises in her love life - boyfriend actor STEPHEN TREDRE died of cancer in 1997 and her marriage to assistant director JAMES THREAPLETON ended in divorce in 2001 - but the screen beauty is so smitten with Mendes, she's certain she's "getting it right this time".

Kate - who has a daughter, Mia, with Threapleton and a son, Joe, with the American Beauty movie-maker - says, "Sam is an incredibly wonderful person and we are very, very happy.

"It's really great. He's a wonderful husband and an incredible dad and I really couldn't wish for more."
