Actors Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor have announced that they are separating after 17 years of marriage.
Stiller and Taylor released a joint statement on Friday announcing their breakup. They were married in May 2000 and have two children, who they said will remain their priority.

“We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time.”
Taylor has appeared in several of Stiller’s films, including Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, Tropic Thunder and Zoolander and its sequel.
The statement was first reported on Friday by Entertainment Tonight.

Since you’re here …

… we’ve got a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Guardian than ever, but far fewer are paying for it. Advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
Because I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.Thomasine F-R
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure.
