The 37-year-old actor and the 45-year-old actress met in 2004 while co-staring on the BBC series Shameless and got married in 2006.
“It is with tremendous sadness that we have come to the decision to divorce. We enter this next phase with continued friendship, love and respect for one another and the shared focus of caring for our son. We ask that you respect our and, most importantly, our child’s privacy during this time,” James and Anne said in a statement.
The former couple share one son together, five-year-old Brendan.
