Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman have called it quits, E! News has learned.

The Total Recall actress and her husband "have been separated for a while," one source tells E! News.

The estranged couple have informed their friends of their split, a separate insider adds, and tells us, "They have not been together for a few months."

The news comes on the heels of Wiseman being spotted out and about without his wedding ring over the past months, hanging out with 24-year-old model CJ Franco. Beckinsale, on the other hand, has been busy filming Underworld 5 in Prague. She hasn't been spotted with her husband since June, when she and Wiseman went out for a low-key date night at The Nice Guy in Los Angeles.

Beckinsale, 42, and Wiseman, 42, met on the set of Underworld, which he directed. Wiseman proposed while the two were out to dinner at the Viceroy Hotel, and he must have been pretty confident about her answer since he had already booked the hotel's presidential suite and filled it with lilies, Beckinsale's favorite flowers.


They married a year later at the Hotel Bel-Air, which would be Beckinsale's first marriage. Prior to tying the knot with Wiseman, Beckinsale dated Michael Sheen for eight years before calling it quits in 2013. She and Sheen share a 16-year-old daughter, Lily Sheen.

Hopefully these two can keep their split as amicable as Beckinsale does with Sheen.

E! News has reached out to reps for the couple for comment. People magazine first confirmed the split news.
