James Marsden Divorce – His wife, Lisa Linde, filed the court documents cited “irreconcilable differences” and she is seeking spousal support, joint legal and physical custody of their two children, Jack, 10, and Mary, 6.
A spokesperson for the 38-year-old actor confirmed the divorce announcement with Us Weekly magazine: “This was a mutual decision. They are committed to raising their kids together and remain great friends.”
James, who married Lisa in 2000, has previously spoken of how much he enjoys being at home with his children.
Asked for the secret of his happy marriage, the “X-Men” actor has said: “It’s always been about being together and keeping the family together. … When I’m not working, I want to be home, and that’s all I want to do.”
Marsden, whose co-stars in the past have included Katie Holmes, Kate Hudson and Katherine Heigl, has also previously stated Linde would be more keen for him to bare all on screen than he would be.
“I don’t know how I would react if I was offered a part with a sex scene. My wife would tell me to do it, though. She wants people to see how sexy I am,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the divorce comes as a sudden surprise among coworkers and family.
