Armie Hammer and his wife Elizabeth Chambers have announced their separation following 10 years of marriage and two children together.
The actor, 33, took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of himself with Elizabeth in happier times, where he wrote they had decided to ‘move on’ from their marriage.
‘Thirteen years as best friends, soulmates, partners and then parents. It has been an incredible journey, but together, we’ve decided to turn the page and move on from our marriage.

‘As we enter into this next chapter, our children and relationship as co-parents and dear friends will remain our priority.
‘We understand this news lends itself to public dialogue, but in the interest of our children and our family, we’re asking for privacy, compassion and love during this time.’
As news of the split emerged, TMZ insiders alleged that the couple had neglected to obtain a prenuptial agreement.
Further, each party has allegedly provided the court with a different separation date, which may impact the alimony Armie has to pay out.

Armie supposedly insists he and Elizabeth separated in January, which is less than 10 full years since the marriage began.
He and Elizabeth tied the knot on May 22, 2010, and Elizabeth says the separation occurred this July, which is past the 10-year mark.
On their 10th anniversary this May, Elizabeth posted a throwback wedding snap to Instagram with a caption that began: ‘TEN years married, twelve together, thirteen years as best friends.’ Armie made no such anniversary post.

The pair also allegedly diverge when it comes to the children, with TMZ sources saying that Armie wants joint legal and physical custody and Elizabeth is requesting exclusive physical custody.
Meanwhile a People source reiterated the duo’s commitment to their children and strong feelings for one another.
‘They both still love each other very much and they’ve always been such a close knit family. I know their main focus right now is their kids and making sure nothing changes for them,’ a source told People.
Top priority: The pair, who share daughter Harper, five, and son Ford, three, together, said their family would remain priority
Elizabeth shared the exact same photo and statement from Armie’s account onto her own Instagram, just a few weeks after marking their 10th wedding anniversary with throwback from their big day.
‘TEN years married, twelve together, thirteen years as best friends. Happy Anniversary, my love,’ she wrote on May 25. ‘I’m beyond grateful for you, this decade, our family and the dreamiest Friday night anniversary sunset. And thank you to Hopsey’s friend, 6-year-old, Sophie who was at the beach and captured this moment.’
Recalling how Armie convinced her to tie the knot, Elizabeth told Town and Country in 2013: ‘When we finally got together, Armie really wanted to get married. He sat me down and said, ‘Look, we don’t have to do this. We could just go our own ways, and then one day you’ll be 40 and divorced and we’ll run into each other, and we’ll laugh and go out to dinner and have this same connection, and we’ll wonder why we wasted all of that time. Or we could just do it now and enjoy the ride.”
