Just in time for Independence Day, a few celebs are officially parting ways with a partner and striking out on their own.
As Maria Shriver filed for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger Friday, George Lopez's divorce from his wife Ann Serrano was finalized, his publicist confirmed to CNN. Serrano, who infamously gave Lopez her kidney when he needed a transplant in 2005, filed for divorce in November citing irreconcilable differences.
Reportedly joining those in the single arena are Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane as well as Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds.
According to Gossip Cop, Arquette filed for divorce back in 2009 but the couple tried reconciliation before they opted to move forward with a divorce last August. Arquette and Jane wed in 2006, and have an 8-year-old daughter.
And then there's ScarJo and Mr. "Green Lantern" himself, Ryan Reynolds. The pair had barely been married for two years before they announced the matrimony had come to an end this past December. Now, according to E!, the divorce is final.
Reynolds admitted to Details in the magazine's June/July issue that the break-up was difficult.
"Anyone who gets divorced goes through a lot of pain," he said. "But you come out of it. I'm not out of it yet. At all. But I sense that as I do come through it, there's optimism...How can there not be? I don't think I want to get married again, but you always reevaluate these things. Any kind of crisis can be good. It wakes you up. I gotta say, I'm a different person than I was six months ago."
