Guy Pearce: Actor Announces Split, Australian actor, singer and high profile Canberra basher Guy Pearce has split from his wife of 18 years.

The pair decided to separate in January, with the split amicable, according to a statement released by Pearce’s publicist on Tuesday.

“Kate and I will always love and support one another and be the best of friends,” Pearce said in the statement.

“No-one knows me like Kate does, and we’ll forever be appreciative of our mutual respect.

“We’ve both grown enormously through our relationship, but sadly, the time has come to part ways.”

The pair first met in 1980, when they attended Geelong College. They wed in 1997.

Pearce took to Twitter to confirm the news, telling his followers they pair “couldn’t be closer”.

The couple do not have children. Pearce spoke about their decision to be childless back in 2012 when promoting his film Prometheus.

“I’m not consistent enough to be a parent – I blow too hot and cold. Kate jokes that we’d end up on the news for throwing a child out of the window,” he said.

The former Neighbours star also shared on his tips for a successful marriage.

“The secret to marriage is being prepared to put your ego aside and say you made a mistake and that you are sorry,” the 48-year-old said.

“When people have small fights and break up, I think it’s because they subconsciously know they don’t really want to be together.”
