Jennifer Jason Leigh and Noah Baumbach Divorcing

Sad news for anyone who's over-invested in seemingly well-matched romantic partnerships between directors and actresses: Noah Baumbach and Jennifer Jason Leigh are divorcing, reports Radar Online. The couple have been married for five years, and Leigh co-starred in Baumbach's most recent films, Margot and the Wedding and Greenberg, the latter of which she co-wrote. One potential silver lining: At least divorce has paid dividends for Baumbach in the past, as he mined his parents' split to great effect for 2005's The Squid and the Whale. [Radar Online]
