Other celeb couples who've gone their separate ways
After nine years together, Anna Friel and David Thewlis have brought their relationship to an end.
The couple, who have a five-year-old daughter Gracie together, have been forced apart by differing acting commitments for the past six months.
A friend told the Daily Mail: "Things have not been great for a long time and they have tried to keep this quiet to protect everyone."
He added: "It certainly did not help that Anna and David have been forced to live apart for so long, but there are other issues at hand that have made them realise the relationship was over."
Thirty-four-year-old Anna first met the 47-year-old Harry Potter actor in 2001 on a flight to Cannes.
