One of the great Hollywood couples is calling it quits. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have been together since the filming of Meet The Parents in 1997, and have appeared in several movies together since.
Zoolander, Dodgeball, and Tropic Thunder are some of the more memorable movies that featured the couple together on screen.
The (former) couple released a statement Friday to PEOPLE:
“With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate. Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.”
At least it seems to be a healthy break up, but it’s still sad to see one of the couples who seemed to be beating the “Hollywood relationship” odds, come to an end.
