Heart of Rocknroll beats for Winslet

FRIDAY, DEC. 28, 2012

Kate Winslet has tied the knot again.

The Oscar-winning actress wed Ned Rocknroll in New York earlier this month. The private ceremony was attended by Winslet’s two children as well as a few friends and family members, her representative said Thursday.

It is the third marriage for the 37-year-old Winslet. She was previously married to film directors Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes.

The 34-year-old Rocknroll, who was born Abel Smith, is a nephew of billionaire Virgin Group founder Richard Branson.

The couple had been engaged since last summer.

Winslet won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in the 2008 film “The Reader.”

Broadway to honor departed actors

The theater community will honor Jack Klugman and Charles Durning by dimming Broadway’s lights in back-to-back memorials.

The marquees at all Broadway theaters were to go dark for one minute at 8 p.m. Thursday in honor of Durning, who died Monday at 89. Durning amassed several important Broadway credits, including playing Big Daddy in a 1990 revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” David Rabe’s “Boom Boom Room” and opposite George C. Scott in “Inherit the Wind” in 1996.

The 40 Broadway marquees will go dark at 8 p.m. tonight for Klugman, who also died Monday at 90. Klugman earned a Tony Award nomination for “Gypsy” in 1960 and his Broadway roles included parts in “I’m Not Rappaport” and “The Sunshine Boys.”
