Actor Jean Dujardin has split from his wife, actress Alexandra Lamy, People reports.
Dujardin, who won the 2012 Best Actor Oscar for his starring turn in The Artist, has appeared in French films with Lamy in the past. In 1999, they met on the set of the French TV series Un Gars, Une Fille. Dujardin, 41, and Lamy, 42, were married for four years.
According to the Daily Mail, Dujardin told journalists at an award ceremony: “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.”
