In a statement sent by their rep, the couple confirmed their split. "We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalise our almost twenty years marriage in a loving and friendly manner, honouring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together."
A source close to the actress said that the couple, who have a 17-year-old daughter Stella together - had been having marital problems for some time.
"The split is not something new and out of the blue - they have had issues for years," the insider told People. "The fights and separations got to be too much."
