One of Hollywood's most enduring and endearing couples has called it quits. Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor announced on Friday that they are divorcing after 17 years of marriage.
"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," the couple said in a statement.
"Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends."
After meeting on the set of a never-aired TV pilot, the 51-year-old Stiller and 45-year-old Taylor tied the knot in 2000. They went on to co-star in movies like Zoolander and Dodgeball. They have two children, daughter Ella Olivia and son Quinlin. Last fall, Stiller revealed that he had been battling prostate cancer.
