Kate Winslet was reunited with ex-boyfriend Rufus Sewell on the set of new movie The Holiday, but insists the experience was "friendly".

The Titanic beauty enjoyed a three-month fling with British actor Sewell in the early 1990s when she was relatively unknown and, although they have hardly seen each other since, Winslet still considers him a friend.

She says: "It was completely fine. I hadn't seen him for a very long time but we'd remained friends.

"It was really not a big deal - I was thrilled he got the part."

Winslet, 31, is married to director Sam Mendes and Sewell, 39, is dating upcoming actress Alice Eve.
