Hours after it was revealed that Malin Akerman and Roberto Zincone have decided to separate after six years of marriage, the Trophy Wife actress was seen pumping gas in L.A. on Monday, Nov. 25. Wearing no makeup and rocking a leather jacket, printed pants and black booties, the 35-year-old TV star smiled for photographers before driving away.
News of the couple's split comes just seven months after they welcomed son Sebastian. Akerman—who once fronted Zincone's alternative band, The Petalstones—showed no signs of martial problems during an October appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael. In fact, she even admitted that she finds her hubby's Italian accent extremely "sexy."
"The language of love, that was it," the Swedish-Canadian star said of initially ignoring their language barrier. "We used to sit with a dictionary, literally with a dictionary, and try to understand one another because he didn't speak English and I didn't speak Italian. But we understood 'the look.'"
The month prior, Akerman boasted that she and Zincone had "never had one single fight" during their 10 years as a couple. "We always talk things out," she told Your Tango. "Really good communication is literally what keeps us solid."
She added that their "focus" shifted to their son after his April arrival. Still, Akerman and the drummer tried their best to keep the spark alive. "The best advice a friend gave us was to make sure every week you have a date night. You have to do it every week," the Rock of Ages star said. "It's a huge shift, and we're trying to keep it on track."
Us Weekly, which broke the news of Akerman and Zincone's separation, noted that neither party is planning to file for divorce just yet. "Honestly, Malin is not even ready to discuss it," a source told the celebrity weekly. "It's a very sad time for her."
