    What’s the use of getting married anymore these days? People are ALWAYS getting divorced!

  • Love The Shoes

    I knew that was coming 4-5 yrs ago when he won the big race and he acted as if she didn’t exist. He literally thanked everyone but her. I couldn’t stand it and wanted her to dump him then.

  • Avery4

    I’m surprised about the divorce. I didn’t know they had been married so long.

  • Avery4

    Maybe she didn’t have kids because she knew she was in a bad marriage. But, I don’t know much about them as a couple.

  • lynn

    She’s crazy. Ever heard her speak?So full of herself. Interesting this happened after all these yrs right after she was thinking of running for political office because someone brought up her name. Her ego let her believe she should move back to KY and run. Heaven help KY if others just as crazy vote for her.

  • haaha

    lol well he is more famous

  • Black-Dahlia

    oh noes.

  • British Latin American

    He’s too hot, sweet and genuine for her.

  • wren

    She’s getting too old and weird for a hot boy like him…..That’s the trouble with cougars marrying younger men. If a relationship is based on the superficial………………

  • L.L.

    I think Ashley will run for Senate minority leader so this is why she and Dario are announcing their split now so that when she does run for office their break up won’t be a negative distraction or hurt her chances of winning. In reality they’ve been seemingly living separate lives for a long time so I’m not surprised that they’re ending the marriage.

  • Bubbles

    WHAAAAAAT!……..Man thought these two were HAPPILY married, guess they weren’t happy after all. Sad to see their marriage end, hope the divorce doesn’t get nasty.

  • jaliah

    Have always liked her. Great that she went on to study as a mature student and that she has a interest in the world. I remember a little comedy she was in and thinking how it was a romantic comedy as opposed to most of the rubbish rom-coms that are churned out.

  • SR

    She was smokin hot in the 90s. Then she got political.

  • matt

    i wonder what happened

  • Roseanne

    I felt like when she married him it was all about him. she really put her career on hold to be with him.

    Wow did the tabloids see this one coming.

  • dooliloo

    Ah crap.. Divorce always sucks, no matter what.. Wish them both all the best!

    Still JJ, you couldn’t have found a less distracting pic though? Ashley Judd looks like a 5th Element Alien…

  • Tommy

    @ LL

    No wonder Obama’s President , there are so many stupid people who vote, Ashely Judd can’t run for Senate minority leader, because that’s held by a republican , since DEMOCRATS control the Senate, and you can’t be voted by the ctizens for the leader of your party in the Senate
    And in what world are you living that makes you belive the voters of Kentucky would vote into office this fruit cake, Kentucky isn’t a democrat state were all democrats have to do is put up anyone and the stupid voters will still put the democrat in office, criminal , sex offender , doesn’t matter.

    Ashley Judd speaks her mind and tries to do stuff about the issues she cares about. so typical to call a woman speaking her mind ‘crazy’. yes, it is 2013 and look at where we still are. so profoundly sad.
    I am frightened for the women that will soon be allowed to hold combat jobs in the military.

  • Sheila

    She’s nuts. Can’t blame him for ahem moving on.

  • J

    nice to see women bringing other women down.
    nice job.

  • Quinnnn

    those 2 tweet each other lovey all the time.
    maybe they r more best friends now.

  • liah

    to J, don’t get p’d just because she ‘s a woman and called Ashley Judd a
    crazy nut, thats why this world is so messed up because, you’d rather
    play sides than to call a spade a spade. I’m a woman and A. J. is
    messed up and is just plain stupid and yeah would make a great politician, she’d fit right in with all the other sorry p.o.s. who run this country.

  • liah

    Yeah, that old cougar is washed up and he needs count his lucky stars and get out fast!!!!and find someone younger and beautiful, and with a better attitude and disposition!!

  • Black

    She’s a bit too wacky lately. Respect her and like her though!
    Anyway, he is not hot at all…this picture is okay but ew…not hot!

  • Holly

    She might be the most self-involved celebrity around and THAT is saying something!

  • Lisa

    No surprise. I expected this for a while. When he won that big race, he didn’t act so lovely towards her. Plus, I think he wants kids (which Ashley never wanted).

  • http://wolfdreaming Kay Blood

    LOL. Someone above called her husband a “hot boy”. He’s freaking 39 years old and hardly a boy. I don’t think many famous people can spell the word “commitment” much less define it and live it.

  • Laura

    ANOTHER split? Wondering when Diana Lane & Josh Brolin divorce will be announced.

  • Laura

    I meant Diane*

  • Jerry

    That’s sad. Dario Franchitti is HOT!

  • :)

    :-( Seemed like loved each other so much.

  • alvin

    5 years age difference is nothing. had to be alot more going on behind closed doors which is nobody’s business but theirs.

  • Alaia

    The hair took a toll on the relationship.

  • TeaCakes

    @lynn: Right! She’s so stuck up and uses words as if she’s a freaking college professor when talking to someone who’s barely graduated from high school. I hate that when people try to act all self-important and stuff, she’s an educated snob. Her hubby prolly got sick of her. BRAVO DARIO. I hope you stick it to her in court LOL.

  • cruizin596

    He didn’t fit in with her plans to run for US Senate so she dumped him.

  • MisterMac

    @L.L.: L.L. hit the nail on the head. You do not see them attached to each other anymore as they were years ago. If the marriage is on the rocks, and she is running for political office, why have your troubled marriage become the center of attention. We will see how amicable the divorce is when it comes to the marital assets.
