Kate Winslet’s spokesperson has brushed off reports she will celebrate her wedding in space.
The 37-year-old Oscar winner secretly tied the knot with Ned RocknRoll in New York City earlier this month.
According to British newspaper The Sun, Richard wanted Kate to have the flight as a thank you for rescuing his mother after a fire broke out on his private Necker Island retreat last year and thought to give the couple tickets as a wedding gift.
Ned works part-time for the space-travelling division of the Virgin empire, as E! News reports.
However, Kate’s spokesperson told the network the story is false.
“[The story] was invented a while ago,” the representative said, adding that it has “been adapted to fit this week’s events”.
Richard’s two-hour Virgin Galactic space journey has proved popular with celebrities.
Tickets sell for £124,000.
Ned, born Abel Smith, began dating Kate last year after meeting on Richard’s Necker Island.
It is the actress’ third marriage. She was married to director Jim Threapleton for three years until 2001. The former couple share a 12-year-old daughter.
She married director Sam Mendes in 2003. They were married for seven years and share a nine-year-old son.
Ned was previously married to British socialite Eliza Cowdray.
