Kate Winslet has herself in a "boy toy situation."

That's how The Daily Mail describes this Oscar and Emmy winner's new romance with Richard Branson's nephew, a 33-year old who has legally changed his name to Ned Rocknroll. The couple attended the funeral of Richard's father together in London on Tuesday.

"Ned is really happy with Kate," a source says. "[Ned] feels he can learn so much from her. It's sexy."

Winslet has been a long-time friend of the billionaire Branson and actually carrie his elderly mother, Eva, to safety last month after the house she was staying in caught on fire.

Rocknroll, meanwhile, recently separated from his wife.

In March, Winslet and director Sam Mendes announced they had split after nearly seven years of marriage and one son together. (Winslet also has a daughter from a previous marriage to Jim Threapleton).

Dowler and Winslet reportedly met through a mutual acquaintance and have "been on lots of dates and really enjoy each other's company," a source told Great Britian's The Mirror.  "Louis has a good sense of humor and is a lovely guy. He gets lots of attention when he's out and about - but he's not your typical model. Not at all big-headed.

"Kate certainly seems smitten... They've really got something special."
