Kate Winslet re-marries

Kate Winslet has tied the knot again. The Oscar-winning actress wed Ned Rocknroll in New York earlier this month. The 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 Winslet, 37. She was previously married to film directors Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes. Rocknroll, 34, 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.’’

More kids of Leon

The Kings of Leon family has just gotten bigger. Drummer Nathan Followill and his wife, singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin, welcomed a baby girl, Violet Marlowe, on Wednesday. It’s the first baby for the couple and the third for the Followill family band. Nathan Followill’s brother Caleb and cousin Matthew also have children.

No charges in Swift case


Prosecutors on Thursday declined to pursue a criminal trespassing charge against a Wisconsin man arrested earlier this month for climbing a fence at a Nashville home linked to country star Taylor Swift. Jacob Kulke of Marshfield, Wis., will remain in jail in Nashville as he fights extradition to Colorado for probation violation. Kulke, 24, did not appear in court during his Thursday hearing. He was arrested Dec. 14 after climbing a fence and a gate at a home in Belle Meade that has been publicly linked to Swift, who was overseas at the time.

‘NCIS’ wins ratings game

Powered by football and ‘‘The Voice,’’ NBC took the lead in the ratings last week. But even football couldn’t tackle CBS’s indomitable ‘‘NCIS,’’ which edged out the Seahawks-49ers clash to become the week’s most-watched show. It drew 19.6 million viewers, the Nielsen Co. said Thursday. In third place was ‘‘NCIS: Los Angeles,’’ followed by the season finale of ‘‘The Voice,” won by Cassadee Pope.
