Melanie Lynskey has filed for divorce from her husband of five years, reports People.

The Two and a Half Men actress married It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Jimmi Simpson in her native New Zealand in 2007. They met on the set of Stephen King miniseries Rose Red in 2001.

Lynskey cited “irreconcilable differences” in the Sept. 25 filing in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The couple have been separated since April 9.

Lynskey currently appears in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Sundance hit Hello, I Must Be Going.
