Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer have announced they're splitting up after nine years of marriage. Pretty good, by Hollywood standards.
Forty-one-year-old Maguire and 39-year-old jewelry designer Meyer made a joint announcement of the split in People, saying they plan to keep things harmonious for the sake of their two children, daughter Ruby, 9, and son Otis, 7.
After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship.
These celebrity divorce announcements are always so awkward, but necessary when you're in the public eye and trying to get ahead of the media circus. As gooey and lovey-dovey as this split-speak is, at least they didn't use therm "conscious uncoupling."
In any case, it's sad news for the family, but maybe it will give Meyer the chance to kiss someone rightside-up.
