Kate Winslet’s ex-boyfriend Louis Dowler is still coming to terms with their split, insisting the pain of their break-up is “still very raw”.
Winslet began dating the male model after she separated from her husband, director Sam Mendes, and Dowler admits he fell in love with her.

The actress called time on the relationship after a vacation at Richard Branson’s Caribbean retreat, and the Titanic star then began dating the entrepreneur’s nephew Ned Rocknroll.

Now, more than two months after their split, Dowler admits he is still brokenhearted.

He tells Britain’s Daily Mail, “I don’t think Kate behaved well and it is still very raw for me. I was in love with her and you can’t switch that off overnight. I’m not sure Kate treated me well.

“Kate came home with me to Cornwall and we just hung out together. She met my parents and family. I thought we were inseparable. I certainly haven’t found anyone else since. I don’t want to go into details but it wasn’t a straightforward break-up. I’m a laid-back guy, so I am not walking around with a long face – but I do still hold a torch for her.”
