  • Margie

    I’m shocked! Wow! Kinda weird but I guess in Hollywood this is normal. Sad.

  • kami

    i thought they were one of the few couples who had a solid marriage. but actors who are on a movie set kissing enticing co-stars for 3 to 6 mos at a time always stray. the temptation is too strong for them. goes to show that everyone in the acting business is weak.

    Kate Bosworth will be on the prowl now. She needs a step up from current “beau” Michael Polish. Beware James Marsden!

    OMG! Wth!?!?

  • Surprised.

    Proof that almost nothing if not absolutely nothing can last in Hollywood. They were together such a long time and had two children together and were lucky enough to marry long before his career took off. Now that it has they split. All around a very sad story. What I found interesting is that his rep said their split was a “mutual decision” yet you don’t have a joint public statement from both of them. Also that she is the one that filed for divorce and not also him. Sounds like she may have been the one that was upset with something that happened with their marriage. I have always had a high opinion of Marsden and would hate to think he might have done something wrong to end his marriage but it is Hollywood and wouldn’t be the first time this has happened. One of the things I always found charming about him is that he had been married and a father for so long and seemed to balance work and a family life. Often when one partner becomes” bigger” than their spouse or marriage it all falls apart. I just hope he doesn’t turn into one of those actors that starts dating everyone for the fame. It would be really sad to see. He doesn’t need to ride the presswhore dating train in order to be a true A list leading actor. He has the talent and the appeal to get there on his own with hard work. I wish them both the best of luck and you never know maybe they will have a change of heart about the divorce. Sometimes the threat of a divorce can actually help save a dying marriage but who really knows what happened. Who did what and how much damage has been done. I do know I don’t trust the statement from his rep. Their job is the spin things for their client to make sure things look best for them in the public eye.

    @JACK MAN: Are you serious? You think mutual beauty is the foundation for a solid marriage?

  • stella

    to the poster above, I think the person was just kidding. Its called sarcasm -_____-

  • Oz

    Nothing’s forever in life, for the most part! Statiscally marriages don’t last to begin with, Hollywood or no Hollywood. Very rare few enjoy long lasting marriages. A career that takes up endless hours of an individual, jetting back n forth isn’t a “steady, long marriage type career”.. Not easy!!

  • Knuckleheads or Bulldogs?

    To those few knuckleheads who insist on trashing Kate Bosworth at every opportunity…..give it a rest!

    You are trivializing and demeaning a sad situation between Marsden and his wife.

    Maybe I shouldn’t refer to you as knuckleheads….angry bulldogs sounds more accurate. Oh wait, I don’t want to insult bulldogs!
