Jenna Fischer Splits From Husband

Jenna Fischer Splits From Husband

The Office‘s Jenna Fishcer, aka Pam Beesly, has officially announced her separation from filmmaker hubby James Gunn after more than six years of marriage.

“We (James and Jenna) need to announce that we have chosen to separate. We are sorry for any pain this causes family and friends. The enthusiasm we have expressed for each other’s lives, spirits, and careers is real – we have been each other’s cheerleader and friend during the past six years and continue to be so now and in the future.

And a special note for our MySpace fans – We appreciate your support over the years, and would be overjoyed to have you continue supporting us both. You might be tempted to make one of us “feel better” by putting the other one down in a post. Please don’t – we still have the utmost respect for one another, and we’d have to delete you. We aren’t taking questions or doing interviews about this particular aspect of our lives. We’re also avoiding reading any press on the subject, so don’t send us any clippings or links about the split. Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy.”

This comes off as very surprising as Jenna, 33, has referred to James, 37, on her blog on multiple occasions, showing him both love and support. Is Hollywood to blame?

Best of luck to both Jenna and James!

    Whaaaat??? Wow, I never would have guessed that would happen.

  • reba

    Now THAT is shocking. I’ve been a fan of Jenna’s for several years now and I just didn’t see that coming.

  • Rachana

    aww… soo sad. best wishes to them both!

  • me

    I’m shocked and yet I wonder when I’ll stop being shocked by such things.

  • Lillianne

    Sad but classy. Best wishes to both of them.


    Awwww, too bad. Better luck next time!

  • awesome!

    Holy crap that’s shocking. Judging from her and his blog entries, you’d think it was the perfect marriage.

    That’s too bad :(

  • awesome!

    ALSO, it says here Gunn is 37 but on, he’s listed as 41?,,20054782,00.html

    Who thw hell are they?
    i guess anyone can be a celebrity.

  • moku

    “She” is an Emmy nominated actress on the one of the funniest shows EVER, The Office, and “He” is the director of Slither.

  • [~Famous~]

    awww thats so nice, this is such good news. to bad I don’t recognize either one of their faces. awww

  • baifan

    if you do not recognize her, that means you are missing out on the best show on TV. Too bad.

    Sad to hear that they are splitting. :-(

  • kerry

    awww, gutted.

  • emich

    is jim to blame? :)

  • J

    ^sadly thats the first thing i thought…i’m ashamed of myself :(

  • nicole

    me too!! i thought that too, as i was reading the article i was scared @ the same time excited to see if john’s name was attached to this @ all.. i never did like james tho interviews he always seemed a lot more vulgar than jenna. but i did think they wud stay together.. =(

  • Ashley

    What a shocker! I hope they can get through all of this smoothly. What a shame :( They seemed very happy.

  • Jen

    I don’t get the whole we-still-love-each-other-but-we’re-breaking-up-our-marriage thing. Makes no sense. Married couples who still have respect for each other and are each other’s “cheereleader” don’t seek a divorce. This is fishy.

  • m

    People who still respect and support each other CAN and DO get divorced – it isn’t always ugly and I think this is the classiest celeb statement in a long time. They’ve been friends since childhood, and I love both of their work and think this is very sad. She recently had the broken back, and I think she leaned on the actress who plays Angela on the Office a lot. They may just have different needs in life and not work as each other’s one, but are still able to see each other in love. Like Brad Pitt saying in that interview how he loved Jen and all that. But even if you love someone, if you aren’t living your best life together, you can’t just stay together!

  • Nina

    WOW! I am shocked, hope the best for the both of them and hopefully they will still remain friends. Didn’t see that coming, it could be something personal but it’s hard staying together whem fame comes in the way. LOVE JENNA!

    on another note:I’m just saying, I know these 2 are going through a hard time but I always thought Jenna and John had great chemistry off-screen (and on of course). That is all I’m saying…

  • dorothy

    I thought john was involved too randomly. I am a little *ashamed* too.

    I wish her the best!

  • Nina

    i agree, I’m ashamed too! Keep my thoughts to myself!

  • Anistonisugly

    Man, if she didn’t have those god-awful shrug-shoulders she would be a super hottie. Shoulders like Sarah Chalke…they will both have nasty humps in later years.

  • Amanda

    Ahem..Jenna/John please?

  • the_original_nika

    breakups always sad.

  • Kate

    this is totally odd… as an avid reader of both of their blogs i seriously never would have seen this coming as they always seem to have to much love for each other… very very strange indeed… but i hope the split is as amicable as they are saying it is and that things work out for the best.

  • Anna

    God, I would never had guessed that they would seperate in a million years! They seemed really steady! But i have always thought, as somebody earlier said, that Gunn has had a bad language. But best wishes to them both! I’m so sorry for them, I really thought they would last. But you never know, right?

  • Chungla

    Where does the line form to help Jenna get over that dweeb ? Because I’ve got my ass lube, a whip and two gallons of Redi-Whip ready to go.

  • Mebees

    what’s to blame??? success it tears the best arpart —weird -didn’t know who the hell she w as before office she gotta big wave now and she’s gonna ride it!

  • ash

    She HAS to start dating Jim for real.

  • narc13

    You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if she started dating John Krazinski. This is what happends once a really hot co-star get’s divorced, and become single again… every guy in hollywood will want to snatch her up quick. And John got a better chance with her than any other hollywod douche bag out there.

  • Erin

    i had an inkling that this would happen ever since i saw how close jenna and john krasinski were at the golden globes at the beginning of 2007.

    And then i wondered that because they had such a strong connection id hoped that maybe jenna would take inspiration from pam and dump roy – a.k.a james gunn for jim aka john krasinski…

    i wouldnt be surprised in the coming future if they hook up. Anyone who watches vids of them on you tube or who listens to them on commentary on the second season of the office will see that they were very close friends, and that i guess her being divorced now opens the doors for them 2 to be together. YAY JENNA AND JOHN ARE TOO CUTE!

    and i know im delayed with this comment… lol like a month late but i just had to say it because i guessed it way back at the beginning of the year and i as delayed as i am i only just seen the post!

  • lucy

    oh my god, erin, i totally agree with you. they definitely seemed like more than good friends at the 2007 golden globes. body language. we will see.
