British actress Kate Winslet is amazed by the common misconception that her brainy husband Sam Mendes is an academic bore. The TITANIC star insists the American Beauty film-maker - who attended prestigious English university, Cambridge - doesn't pass his free time leafing through William Shakespeare's tragedies HAMLET and Macbeth. She says, "Oh how little people really know my husband. And by the way, he doesn't keep copies of Shakespeare on the bedside table either, it's not like I'm married to some professor."
