Australian actor Guy Pearce fell in love with Kate Mestitz when he was 12. It was 35 years ago when they were both attending school.
They lost track of one another until the mid-1990s and in 1997, they married – and it a was solid and scandal-free marriage.
Sadly, on Tuesday, Guy announced that he and Kate separated in January.
In a statement, GUy, 48, said: “Kate and I will always love and support one another, and be the best of friends. No one knows me like Kate does, and we’ll forever be appreciative of our mutual respect. We’ve both grown enormously through our relationship, but sadly, the time has come to part ways.”
They have no children.
