Actress Rie Miyazawa, 39, who married a former professional surfer in 2009 after becoming pregnant, announced through her management company this week that she's ending their three-year-marriage.
In a signed fax, Miyazawa explained that the couple have grown distant due to their different commitments and are currently discussing the terms of their split through their lawyers, Sankei Shimbun reported. "Differences in the way we think have gradually driven us to a point where it feels difficult to carry on," she explained in the fax.
While Miyazawa is focusing on her acting career, her husband -- who is in his 40s -- is based in Hawaii, managing a sunglasses factory. The couple met in 2007 and were married two years later when Miyazawa was eight months pregnant with their now three-year-old daughter.
