Actress Anne Heche's estranged husband COLEY LAFFOON is grateful for the time the couple spent together, but is ready to move on with his life after their split.
Heche and Laffoon, a cameraman, separated last month (JAN07), amid rumours she was romantically involved with her MEN IN TREES co-star JAMES TUPPER.
He tells American publication People, "I've had an amazing six years with Anne and I will always be grateful for what we shared. But now it's time to get back in the mix.
"I'm ready to pick up the camera again, and step in front of it too. I want to thank everyone for their support and good wishes. I'm looking forward to the next adventure."
Laffoon, 33, and Heche, 37, met while filming a 2001 documentary on her then-partner Ellen Degeneres.
They wed in 2001 and have a four-year-old son, HOMER. Laffoon is seeking joint custody of their son, as well as spousal support from Heche.
