Alicia Silverstone announces split from Christopher Jarecki after 13 years of marriage
Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki decided to separate mutually and the Clueless star is currently vacationing in Hawaii with her son Bear.
The 90s hit actress Alicia Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki have decided to separate after 13 years of marriage. The couple announced through their representatives that they still have "deep respect and love" for each other, and have decided to co-parent their six-year-old son, Bear Blue Jarecki.
The statement read, "They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent," according to E!
Alicia and Christopher, a one-time rock star who was associated with neopunk band S.T.U.N, got married in 2005 at a private estate in California's Lake Tahoe where the Clueless actress walked down the aisle barefoot. Six years later, the couple welcomed their first son. The 41-year-old actress and her husband of 13 years are known for their eco-friendly lifestyle.
The couple took up veganism together, a lifestyle that spurred her second career: writing. Alicia has authored two books; in 2009, she published The Kind Diet and wrote a vegan pregnancy guide titled The Kind Mama in 2014. Alicia once told Live! with Kelly and Michael that she ate her placenta in the form of pills, and added that she "loved it."
"I've got to the point that my husband said 'Did you have your happy pills today?' And I was really sad when they were gone. It really helped me," Alicia said.
In the years after they tied the knot, Alicia and Christopher stayed away from the media and said earlier theirs is a "no movies and TV" family. However, she made an exception and allowed her son to watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul. "We're a pretty no movies and TV family, so I'm very mindful of what it is that he sees, but in this case, I'm in it. It has a free pass. The bottom line is, the movie is so funny and so sweet," Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
The Batman and Robin star is currently vacationing in Hawaii with her son, Bear. She's been posting regular updates from their holiday, revealing that they've been boogie boarding, swimming and visiting the farmer's market. In her latest Instagram post, she wrote that they're living in her friend's house and are constantly cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry while they're not on the beach.
The actress, who rose to fame for her role Cher Horowitz in Clueless, will star in Paramount Pictures' TV series, American Woman, which is currently in its post-production stage.
Apart from this, she will be seen alongside Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Candice Bergen in Book Club, a movie that revolves around the lives of four women who read Fifty Shades of Grey and have their lives changed forever.
