Benjamin Walker & Mamie Gummer Split

Benjamin Walker and his wife Mamie Gummer are going their separate ways after nearly two years of marriage.

“It’s very amicable,” reps for the 29-year-old actress and daughter of Meryl Streep confirmed to Us Weekly.

Benjamin and Mamie met while performing in 2008 Broadway production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses together and became engaged in October 2009. Two years later, the couple married at her family’s Connecticut estate, with stars like Claire Danes, Laura Linney and Tracey Ullman as guests of the wedding.

    People are just shitting on the purpose of marriage if he isn’t abusing you, arent treating you right, or aren’t cheating on you, I feel if that the marriage is okay to work for marriage should be the last step it does not make any sense.

    @Tiana: You don’t know what caused them to go their separate ways. I personally think he wanted out of it because of her and her satanic family and witch mother. It’s all too much for your average man or woman to understand, but you’ll wake up sooner or later.

    witch mother??? As if you know Meryl in real life. Maybe they work in different places and couldn’t make it work. Meryl is the funniest and sweetest lady whos been married 30+ years and has 4 great kids who are not typical hollywood spoiled brats. she even lives in connecticut away from la nonsense.

    wow…only 2 years and things weren’t working out. I think marriage today is more for the party and attention the bride and groom get’s not for commitment. After all the celebration they realize the person they married is not as magical as that moment they were went into thinking.

  • Anne

    So now that he’s famous he ended up his marriage. So predictable.

  • Verity

    Who? Are we supposed to care because it’s Meryl Streep’s daughter?

    Is there anything that last for a while anymore?

    That awkward moment when you have no idea who these people are

    Despite the fact that most people aren’t too concerned with the news of this so-called amicable split (see previous comments…people are already questioning whether it was indeed so “amicable” but it should also be stated that NO ONE seems to know who they are either)…a few other clued-in sources and I unfortunately have even tougher news re: their relationship woes.

    Those who knew them personally, knew this divorce was sadly seen coming a mile away. Walker was tempted to cheat on his wife many times and not just recently- their first year of engagement was certainly a rocky one. As one of the commenters mentioned, the two were never actually spending time together since she was filming in Vancouver and he made sure most of his work kept him in NYC. They have never really wanted the same things out of a marriage either. Word is that the wedding itself only happened in 2010 because she desperately begged him to go through with it :(

    For more news and to find out how Meryl’s taking all of this…well, let’s just hope JustJared checks their email. Updates could certainly be on the way! DL@gmail & check out for more updates

    Not that it’s any of my business but something tells me you were counting on this split happening. Maybe even waiting for it? Got something at stake, here, HYT? Also, using a successful gossip site to plug your own gossip site? Shameless. (One word Emmy Rossum and Ben Walker know all too well. Hmm…speaking of Emmy & Ben…)


  • H.Y.T.

    @Dina: Ha. no need to formally respond to that. The stories will probably surface on their own anyway but remember where you read it. Also, I’ve been corrected…they did not marry in 2010, they married in 2011 – two years after Mamie announced to the press that they were engaged.

  • sarah

    Mamie should have just done what her parents have done to keep their marriage going for so long. Have an open marriage. Everyone knows that Don lets Meryl sleep around to keep her happy. She has slept with half of her co stars and plenty of others.

  • Dalia

    @sarah: Please where you get information so stupid?

  • Emma

    What are you talking about???? If she had slept with half of her costars
    1) her marriage wouldn’t have lasted 34 years
    2) she wouldn’t be defined “the queen of monogamists”
    But hey, guess what? Streep and Gummer have been happily married for a long long time and she has NEVER (and i’d like to highlight NEVER) been on a gossip magazine for any kind of scandal.
    The couple surely has had its ups and downs like all the couples in the world but I think nor you nor I know Meryl Streep well enough to give this kind of private info.

  • sarah

    Hhahah stupid Streepers think that Meryl is perfect. You people know zero about Meryl and Don’s marriage. It is pretty much common knowledge here in hollywood that Meryl has slept with her costars. Don turns a blind eye because it part of her “process” as an actor. I mean continue to live in your crazy Streeper world if it makes you feel better, we here in the real world will going on living without your delusion.
