In the April issue of Harper's Bazaar UK, Kate Winslet, who is on the cover, opens up about her most recent divorce to Skyfall director Sam Mendes.

According to The Sun, Mendes and Winslet split in 2010. Now, Winslet is saying she has learned a lot through her divorce and that it made her stronger.

"I've really learned a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular," Winslet said in her interview with Harper's Bazaar UK. "I think I can see more clearly now - about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played - and I'm grateful for that."

Winslet and Mendes have a son, Joe, 8, and she has a daughter, Mia, 12, with her first husband, Jim Threapleton. Threapleton and Winslet were married from 1998 to 2001.

Winslet recently married Ned Rocknroll, Richard Branson's nephew, in December 2012 and she won her first Oscar for Best Actress in 2009 for The Reader.  

For the future, Winslet told Harper's Bazaar UK, "I have so much more material to draw on for work - rubble, bricks - and I know I can carry it now. I'm not going to drop it, and if I do, I'll sift through it. Does that make any sense at all? Probably not..."
