David Schwimmer Borrows From "Friends," Takes A Real Life Break From Wife Zoe Buckman

"We were on a break!"

He's not her lobster anymore.

David Schwimmer, who rose to fame on Friends, has put a halt on his seven-year marriage.

The actor, 50, who just produced and starred in a series of short films on sexual harassment, confirmed to US Weekly that he and British producer Zoe Buckman, 31, are taking a break.

"It is with great love, respect, and friendship that we have decided to take some time apart while we determine the future of our relationship," the couple shared in a statement. "Our priority is, of course, our daughter's happiness and well-being during this challenging time.”

It sounds a lot like Ross and Rachel.

David and Zoe have a 5-year-old daughter, Cleo. They have asked for respect and privacy as they continue to “raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family."

David met the British producer and artist in 2007 when he was directing the film Run, Fat Boy, Run in London. Zoe relocated to Los Angeles to pursue the relationship. The two married in secret in June 2010, when Zoe was 25 and David was 43. It's a first marriage for both.

The couple, who were last seen in public together in October 2016, looked happy and in love when they attended the Emmys this past September. David starred in the award-winning series The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The Friends alum has also been spotted house hunting in New York City’s East Village.

He made no reference to the split during a recent panel discussion at Hearst Tower about his latest project.
