The couple, who have two children together, Alexander (Sasha), 8, and Samuel, 7, released a statement Monday to announce their separation.

“Over the past few months we've come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple," they said. “It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship. While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”

The couple, who have never married, met on the set of the film, The Painted Veil, and have a new film arriving in theaters, The Bleeder, later this year.

Prior to the split, the duo were spotted at the Venice Film Festival and Toronto Film Festivals earlier in the month and showed no signs of problems.
