The Real Reason Kate Winslet’s Husband Changed His Name Back From Ned Rocknroll


Speaking of the British media’s reaction to her husband’s name, Kate Winslet continued, “I don’t think he had anticipated what might happen if he should have a girlfriend whose name was Kate Winslet and who was quite well-known and therefore the press might kind of not react so well to the fact that she had this boyfriend called then Rocknroll … So, it was a little tricky” (via E!).  

According to The Sun, Ned, who is the nephew of billionaire Sir Richard Branson, eventually changed his surname back to Smith “because he is now a dad and wants to set an example.” Speaking to the publication, a source added, “It was always a bit of a joke. He is a very happy-go-lucky person. He never takes life that seriously but sometimes life changes and now he wants to be a bit more serious.”

During her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Winslet backed up the source’s claims, revealing, “I got to the point where I’m like, you know, I’m filling in doctors’ forms and it says ‘mother’s name’ and ‘father’s name,’ and I’m like, ‘Honey … are we going to keep going?'” she said (via E!). “And he’s like, ‘Yeah, you’re right. I’ll just change it back.’ So, he changed it back.” Although the switch makes sense, Mr. Rocknroll has a better ring to it than Mr. Smith, doesn’t it?
