James Marsden's wife of ten years files for divorce

10/01/2011 by Olivia Allin

James Marsden's wife of over ten years, Lisa Linde filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences, it was announced on Friday.

According to divorce papers filed on September 23, Linde is seeking spousal support and joint legal custody of the couple's two children, son Jack Holden, 10, and daughter Mary James, 6. The couple got married on July 22, 2000.

Linde, who is the daughter of country singer Dennis Linde, has also dabbled in acting and appeared in nine episodes of the daytime drama, "Days of Our Lives."

Marsden recently starred in "Straw Dogs," opposite Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard. In the film, which is based on Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film of the same name, the actor played the role previously tackled by Dustin Hoffman.

"I like flawed characters, I like complicated stories. This might be a movie that is going to be polarizing as far as how you feel when you come out of it," Marsden told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a September satellite interview. "To me, it was just a great role and heroic in many ways but also, it was not so black and white that he was just the hero throughout. In the original, the Dustin Hoffman movie, Peckinpah always viewed him as the villain of the piece."

Marsden, 38, is best known for his roles in the "X-Men" franchise and for appearing in films like "Disturbing Behavior," "The Box" "Enchanted" and "27 Dresses."

The actor recently spotted in New York filming the upcoming romantic comedy, "Bachelorette," with Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fischer and will next appear opposite Liv Tyler and Liev Schreiber in "Robot and Frank," which is slated for release in 2012.
