Josh Brolin and Diane Lane's divorce looks imminent after the pair split following eight years of marriage. The revered actors called it quits, with representatives telling Us Weekly, "Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage." The high profile couple married in 2004 though took a break shortly afterwards when Brolin was arrested for spousal battery, according to TMZ.com.
"It was a mutual decision. It is very amicable. It's not ugly, it's just over," a source told the Los Angeles Times of the breakdown of the marriage. The previously inseparable Brolin and Lane have kept up appearances on the red-carpet in recent years, constantly photographed together at premieres in Los Angeles and New York. It will be the second divorce for both, with Brolin, 45, previously married to the actress Alice Adair and Lane, 48, divorcing actor Christopher Lambert in 1994.
News of the split comes as both stars continue to enjoy high profile roles in Hollywood. Oscar nominated Lane will next appear in the Superman movie Man of Steel, with Henry Cavill, before starring in crime-drama Every Single Thing with Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Banks. Brolin, also an Oscar nominee, will next appear in Jason Reitman's Labor Day, starring multi-Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and Tobey Maguire. He's also signed on for Spike Lee's Oldboy and Sean Penn's Crazy For The Storm.
