Meryl Streep and husband Don Gummer have been separated for more than six years.

A spokesperson for Streep added: “While they will always care for each other, they have chosen lives apart.”

The actress, 74, and 76-year-old Gummer, a sculptor, married in 1978.

They have four children together: musician Henry, 43, and Mamie, 40, Grace, 37, and Louisa, 32 – who have all followed their mother into acting.

They also have five grandchildren, with daughter Grace most recently welcoming a daughter with Grammy-winning British musician Mark Ronson.

He is best known for his collaborations with Amy Winehouse, Adele and Bruno Mars.

Streep and Gummer last appeared together at the 2018 Oscars. Streep was pictured on Friday at the Princesa de Asturias Awards 2023 wearing her wedding ring.
