    Mena Suvari Calls It Splits

    Mena Suvari is putting her American beauty back on the market.

    The actress has filed for divorce from her husband of five years, cinematographer Robert Brinkmann, E! has confirmed.

    The court documents, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior, cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason behind the split. Us Weekly was the first to report the divorce proceedings.

    The couple separated Apr. 24, per court documents. Suvari is asking the court not to award spousal support to Brinkmann. They have no children.

    Suvari, 25, and Brinkmann, 43, wed in March 2000, shortly after Suvari's back-to-back breakthrough performances as a choir girl in American Pie and the eye-popping object of Kevin Spacey's infatuation in American Beauty.

    The twosome collaborated on 2001's Sugar & Spice, in which Suvari played a bank-robbing cheerleader, while Brinkmann provided his camera-guy expertise.

    Suvari also worked with Brinkmann on the indie film Standing Still, which premieres next month at the Cinevegas Film Festival and on Stephen Tobolowsky's Birthday Party, which premiered at the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in February.

    Outside of her work with her soon-to-be ex, Suvari reteamed with her Beauty screenwriter Alan Ball last year for a recurring role on his HBO series, Six Feet Under.

    She also appeared in this year's Beauty Shop with Queen Latifah and will be seen in the upcoming comedy Rumor Has It with Jennifer Aniston.
