The 43-year-old star met the director on the set of Underworld and married him in 2004
Kate Beckinsale’s husband Len Wiseman has filed for divorce after 12 years of marriage.
According to TMZ, the director cited “irreconcilable differences” in the divorce papers and the pair are not seeking spousal support from each other as they come to an agreement.
It has been rumoured for months that the pair had quietly split after Kate, 43, was seen without her wedding band as early as November 2015.

Len, also 43, is also said to have been on a number of dates with another woman after the secret split.
The pair, who first met on the set of thriller Underworld, tied the knot in 2004, and although they don’t have children together, Kate has a daughter, Lily, from a previous relationship with actor Michael Sheen.
Actress Kate hinted their relationship was in trouble in the past, telling Glamour in 2012: “There’s absolutely part of me that goes, ‘I’d love to have a baby in the relationship I’m in, and have that experience when the relationship’s really good and exclusive, but I’m just not sure.”

The pair spent time together in Mayfair
Meanwhile, Kate hit back at rumours she was dating comedian David Walliams in July this year, after they were spotted enjoying dinner in Mayfair together.
Kate took to Twitter to joke: “‘This is my dear friend, @davidwalliams. If I ever see him naked I will immediately tattoo a [eggplant emoji] on my face for clarity.
“Until that appears, everyone can relax and know we are friends, as we have been for the last 2000 years.
