After nine years of marriage, The Great Gatsby actor Tobey Maguire and his wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, are seperating.

In a joint statement to People Magazine, the pair said that they were ending their marriage, but that their priority would be to focus on their two children, Ruby, 9, and Otis, 7.

"After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple," they said. "As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship."

The pair, who met in 2003, married in 2006, something Maguire had opened up about by sharing that it gave him something to look forward to after a harder childhood and life.

"Let's just say this is truly the best time of my life," he said at the time. "I'm walking on air. I'm getting married, starting a family, and have an amazing company."

No reason has been given for the split.
