Clueless star Alicia Silverstone splits with husband of 20 years Christopher Jarecki
Actress Alicia Silverstone has called it quits with her singer husband Christopher Jarecki after a 20-year relationship.
The Clueless star wed punk rocker Jarecki in 2005 in Lake Tahoe, California, and they welcomed their son Bear in 2011.The pair announced their separation on Monday, with both vowing to keep working together to raise their only child.
A statement released by Alicia's representative to E! News reads: "They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent."
She has always tried to keep her private life out of the public eye, and only occasionally shares details about her home life on her blog, The Kind Life, and her social media pages.
On Sunday,, the 41-year-old revealed she and her son were on vacation in Hawaii.
"Kauai 1st day adventures beach, farmers market... so lucky. so happy. so in love with my boy," she captioned a series of snaps of Bear playing in the sand.
Alongside a mother-and-son photo, she wrote: "Bear and I on our Hawaiian adventure. My sweet sweet love".
The split news emerges three months after Alicia decided to only consider taking on quality acting roles which are "satisfying" for her soul to make spending time away from her family worthwhile.
"Lately I've been making some tougher decisions about big parts that would be sort of commercial, but not necessarily satisfying to your soul. It's not worth it to me," she told Vulture in November, after appearing in Yorgos Lanthimos' critically-acclaimed psychological horror The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and family comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.
"I'd rather (spend) a day on a Yorgos film than three months doing something I'm not passionate about," she said.
In addition to acting, Alicia is also a best-selling author and health advocate, and she recently created the mykind Organics Gummy vitamins range with bosses at top nutrition brand Garden of Life.
