Jane Lynch: Divorce isn't dramatic

Jane Lynch says her divorce from Dr. Lara Embry is not a "horrible thing".

The Glee actress and her clinical psychologist spouse Dr. Lara Embry announced their split last month.

The pair have now started divorce proceedings after three years of marriage, but Jane is remaining optimistic about the situation.

"It's not dramatic. It's not a horrible thing. It's something that we're dealing with," Jane explained on the web show Larry King Now on Monday.

"It's two people who just decide it's better to go apart than stay together."

Jane added that she will remain friends with Lara and her young daughter Haden.

"All's good. We have a little girl – she has a little girl who's very dear to me. She's ten, and she's doing great," she continued. "We have to remain adults, which we have. We keep everybody's – especially Haden's – good in our mind."

Jane and Lara tied the knot on Memorial Day in 2010 in the state of Massachusetts, where same sex marriage is recognised.

In June Jane released a statement, revealing the couple no longer feel they have a future together.

"Lara and I have decided to end our marriage,” Jane announced. “This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter.”

Jane's episode on the show was taped prior to the tragic death of her Glee co-star Cory Monteith. When asked about his struggles with addiction and his recent stint in a rehabilitation clinic, she answered: "He went to rehab, and he's out now and he's doing great. He was sober for many, many years. And he's a young man. So he just had to kind of renew his vows to sobriety."
