Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish are going their separate ways.
On Thursday, the 38-year-old actress announced that she and her filmmaker beau, 50, have split after nearly eight years of marriage.
Sharing an affectionate black-white photo of the pair laughing and kissing one another at the same time, Bosworth began the caption of her post with a poignant message.
“The beginning is often the best part of love. Fireworks, magnets, rebellion — the attraction. The onset signals a wide open expanse of possibility,” she wrote. “Split a burger with someone when you are falling in love, and you can die happily knowing this is your last meal. Buy a bottle of whiskey and share shots, pour me a waterfall. Play that perfect song on the jukebox and dance with someone you have known your whole life, though you met minutes ago.”
“Inherently we fear an ending. To lose what you have because you got what you wanted. To be attached to the expectation of the outcome. The great Unknown,” Bosworth added. “What if we chose not to fear but instead, to love. If that most delicate and vulnerable last flicker to the flame became another type of furnace entirely.”
