One of the most “stable” marriages in Hollywood has officially hit the rocks.
Alicia Silverstone, who starred in “Clueless” with conservative Stacey Dash, reportedly filed for divorce on Friday.
Rare Hollywood Marriage
In a day and age when Hollywood stars change spouses about as often as most people change their underwear, Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki seemed to be the exception.
The two wed in 2005, after having already been together since 1997, in what was a “dream” wedding.
Silverstone and Jarecki tied the knot on the beach in a very closed ceremony attended only by family and friends.
The couple has a 6-year-old boy.
While getting divorced, the two insist they will remain active co-parents of the child.
In a statement released to the press, Silverstone stated, “They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years.”
It continued, “They have a son together who whey will continue to co-parent.”
The court documents also revealed the couple has in fact been separated since March 2016.
The Reality of Hollywood
Sooner or later, the reality of Hollywood always seems to sink its teeth into relationships.
What many may not realize about Silverstone is that part of her early “acting” career was as a character actress in several Aerosmith videos.
After appearing in several TV shows, she blew the doors off Hollywood in “Clueless,” where she co-starred with Stacey Dash in high school comedy romance movie.
From there, her career exploded, with almost five dozen actress credits now on her IMBD profile.
Jarecki, however, had a bit of a different level of success.
While he did make a brief foray into acting, he only had two move appearances, and they were not exactly marquee performances.
His bigger claim to fame was as the front man for a punk group, S.T.U.N.
While it is pure speculation, one can only imagine the level of stardom for Silverstone compared to that of Jarecki took its toll on the marriage over the years.
