The two, married for 7 years, two children together, Rafaella, six, and Memphis, four. Jemima says the separation was largely in part because of her acting career.
The actress, 31, told ES magazine, “I got divorced and I attribute that to acting. And just asking myself, ‘Is this really me?’ So much of my life has been about reaction, just following the flow rather than making a strong choice.
“In acting you are always asking yourself why you do things, why you make the choices you make. Everything means something. And so then you start looking at your own life in that way. I’ve learnt a lot more about myself and started to figure out what I really want.”
Jemima, also the real life best friend of her boos and co-star Lena Dunham, can be seen in the upcoming final season of Girls. She also plays a recovering heroin addict in upcoming film, Untogether.
“When you are in rehab, and afterwards, you think you are an addict,” she said. “I didn’t actually feel like the label fit, but I went through with it because I gave it credit for giving me a life and I was scared that if I abandoned it, I would go right back to where I was.”
