Jean Dujardin and actress wife split.The French actor known for his starring role in the silent movie The Artist (George Valentin) and Alexandra Lamy have parted ways after four years of marriage. The couple were wed back in 2009, decide to go there different ways earlier this year in 2013.

Speaking to reporters at an event in Paris on Tuesday (12Nov13), he said,
“It has been eight months that tabloids have been trying to make me out as depressed, an alcoholic, a womaniser. This is no more, or less, than the story of a couple who are separating, like any other couple (sic).”
Dujardin and met Lamy in 1999 when they were both cast in French Tv series Un Gars, Une Fille. They also teamed up onscreen in The Players, which the actor co-directed, produced and starred in.
