In Hollywood, a relationship lasting 29 years after the spouses got together in their early 20s is rare indeed.
Which is why industry insiders were so shocked last week when The Mentalist star Simon Baker announced the end of his marriage to actress Rebecca Rigg after 22 years.
They met on a blind date in 1991, starred on soap E Street together and married in 1998.
In a statement to US People magazine, Simon, 51, and Rebecca, 53, said, “We remain close friends and our children will always be the most important focus of our lives,” referring to 27-year-old Stella, Claude, 22, and Harry, 19.
Fox News reports the couple split last April, further adding to the mystery of what went wrong in one of Tinseltown’s most enduring unions.

Just before the outbreak of the World War II, a small-time archeologist was hired by a local woman to excavate her land. The thought was that it possibly contained some Viking remnants. But what was unearthed in the mounds out in the fields was far more significant than they could have imagined: Buried in the grounds of Sutton Hoo was actually a ship that would end up providing a deeper understanding of the sophistication of the early Anglo-Saxon period.
