Josh Brolin and wife Diane Lane have split after eight years of marriage, calling their separation a “mutual decision."

The 45-year-old Gangster Squad star and his actress wife are reported to have separated two months ago.

Representatives for the couple made the announcement on Thursday.

"Diane Lane and Josh Brolin have decided to end their marriage," the spokesman told Us Weekly.

"It was a mutual decision. It is very amicable. It's not ugly, it's just over,” an insider added.

The couple married in August 2004 and have no children together.

Josh stepped out on the red carpet of the Los Angeles premiere for Gangster Squad last month without Diane.

It will be the second divorce for both stars with the actress wed to actor Christopher Lambert from 1988 to 1994.

She has a 19-year-old daughter, Eleanor from the relationship.

Josh was married to actress Alice Adair over the same time period, and the couple had two children Trevor, 24, and Eden, 18.

The No Country for Old Men actor has been effusive in praise for his wife in the past.

"I mean, check her out, man,” he told Playboy magazine back in 2010. “My relationship with my wife is fantastic."

Diane, who last appeared in TV movie Cinema Verite,in 2011, will next star in Superman reboot Man of Steel, playing Clark Kent’s adoptive mother Martha.
