Diane Lane, Josh Brolin call it quits

Diane Lane and Josh Brolin are splitting up after eight years of marriage, reps for Brolin tell CNN.

The reps didn't provide any other details other than to confirm that “Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage.”

The actor pair tied the knot in August 2004, and it was the second marriage for both. "Gangster Squad" star Brolin, 45, has two children from his previous marriage to actress Deborah Adair: Trevor, 25, and Eden, 19.

"Man of Steel's" Lane, 48, has a daughter, 19-year-old Eleanor, from her prior marriage to actor Christopher Lambert.

According to Us Weekly, the couple have been broken up for a couple of months. An inside source tells the magazine that their breakup was a mutual decision.

"It is very amicable," the source said. "It's not ugly, it's just over."

      This was indeed long overdue. Josh has been in just a bit too much trouble for Diane to put up with, no doubt. Radiance, class and integrity just pour out from her. He, on the otherhand, seems to be a trouble maker – so why should she jeopardize her status with a loser?

      Not a good combination, which is what I've been thinking about them for several years now.

      Diane Lane is a brilliant and talented actor. I have observed that since her marriage to Mr. Brolin, she hasn't played parts that showcase her talent like her role in "Unfaithful". He appears to have significant alcohol issues and she needs to leave him, stay gone, and get another Oscar worthy part and Diane Lane worthy man.

    I'm amazed that it lasted eight years. He is pretty hot headed and he's gotten into several fights in the past couple of years. I'm hoping that she will do a sequel to Under the Tuscan Sun.

    I always get Diane Lane and Ashley Judd confused - two beautiful, middle aged redheads. They're both getting divorced now, right? Now I'm even more confused.
