Jennifer Jason Leigh has filed for divorce from director husband Noah Baumbach.
The Golden Globe nominated actress, whose real name is Jennifer Morrow, filed for divorce on November 15 in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, according to court documents obtained by Radaronline.
The couple married in 2005 and have an eight-month-old son, Rohmer.
Jennifer co-starred in Noah's Greenberg and Margot At The Wedding, and recently appeared in Weeds.
Her numerous other credits include The Machinist, Single White Female, Rush, Dolores Claiborne and The Anniversary Party, which she co-wrote and co-directed with Alan Cumming.
Noah, the writer-director of films such as the Oscar-nominated Fantastic Mr Fox and The Squid And The Whale, also penned the script for Ben Stiller's upcoming action comedy Tower Heist.
