French actor Jean Dujardin and his wife of four years, Alexandra Lamy, have called it quits.
The Oscar winner announced his split Tuesday (Nov. 12) at a literary event in Paris, telling reporters that he and Lamy are separated.
"It has been eight months that tabloids have been trying to make me out as depressed, an alcoholic, a womanizer. This is no more, or less, than the story of a couple who are separating, like any other couple," the star of "The Artist" explained, according to several reports.
Dujardin, 41, and Lamy, 42, met in 1999 when they were both cast in the French TV series "Un Gars, Une Fille." They tied the knot in 2009. Although they have no children together, Dujardin has two sons and Lamy has a daughter, all from previous relationships.
According to a poll from Harris Interactive for Gala magazine last year, they were named the most popular couple in France.
