Kristen, 37, told E! that sometimes, there is more to a relationship that people see and one cannot comment on others relationship without knowing what really goes on between two people. She said that she understands "people need to look up to other relationships,” but added, “I also think we’re not looking at the whole picture when we sort of idolize the relationship.” Talking about Channing and Jenna, Kristen said, "Like those two, that may be a better path for both of them and they’re both lovely people and they’re still friends and that’s OK. It’s OK to feel like, ‘I went through 10 years with you, I love you and now I feel like I want something different and so do you.’ ”

“Like it doesn’t have to be a heartbreak, I guess is what I mean. It could actually be the healthiest thing for both individuals to thrive and it could also be the best example for your kids,” the actress added. Kristen, who has been married to actor Dax Shepard since 2013 confessed that marriages that are out there in the spotlight can be "a lot of pressure".

Despite this, she has high hopes for her marriage with Dax, with whom she shares two children, daughters Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 3. “Well I’ll tell you this, I highly doubt we will ever break up because we’re just…we’re in too deep and I like him too much. Even when he’s annoying I really like him,” she said.

“I’m still like, ‘I still wanna be on the porch with you when I’m 80, but I really need you to get out of my face right now.'” Channing and Jenna announced their split in a joint statement which the couple posted on their respective social media. “We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple,” the pair said. “We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now," the statement read. 

Ever since the news about their split emerged, there have been various news stating varied reasons for their breakup. The pair separately came forward and denied the rumors and stated that any news about their relationship that had been on the Internet was false.
