Jemima Kirke and Michael Mosberg are divorcing after seven years of marriage, and Kirke is blaming one little thing for the split: acting. That is rather inconvenient with, you know, Kirke being an actress and all. The 31-year-old currently stars as Jessa Johansson on Girls, which was created by her long-time best friend Lena Dunham.
Kirke told ES Magazine: "I got divorced and I attribute that to acting. And just asking myself, ‘Is this really me?’" She went on to add:
So much of my life has been about reaction, just following the flow rather than making a strong choice. In acting you are always asking yourself why you do things, why you make the choices you make. Everything means something. And so then you start looking at your own life in that way. I’ve learnt a lot more about myself and started to figure out what I really want.
The couple, who met in rehab, have been married since 2009 and share two children together.
