Julia Stiles Denies She Is The Cause For Michael C Hall Split


It is pretty rare that someone comes out and flat denies that they were the reason for a marriage split, but Julia Stiles sent out a statement yesterday that said she was not the reason that Michael C Hall and Jennifer Carpenter split.

"I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumors I was somehow the cause for this matter."

Do you believe her? There is no reason not to believe her, although it will look really strange now if they do decide to start dating.

She never says they are "just friends" just that they are "good friends." It sounds like she is saying that perhaps the marriage was already over before they started dating and perhaps they waited until the season finale to announce the divorce? Or maybe they aren't dating whatsoever. Who knows.

They are all brilliant actors though. It is a shame. I thought Dex and Deb were a perfect match. Oh well.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Please. They're doing it. Or at the very least, they were.

Cheryl said...

Yeah, sounds like they are just establishing the timeline and they will lie low for a bit then go public with the relationship.

It would have been better if she said nothing.

Hmmmmmmmmm. The lady protests too much.

looserdude said...

I don't care. I just hope Lumen comes back next season.

Pookie said...

idt she's protesting too much at all. it's one statement, and a short one at that. we could argue semantics about 'just friends' vs. 'good friends'...but it's mindless really. it's all speculation at this point. she's never courted the paps, or chased to be tabloid fodder, so no reason to think she'd start now. besides, i would hope she has better judgment...you never want to put yourself in the position of being the rebound girl.

Hate the Lumen character. Not crazy about Stiles either. Michael Hall has a thing for homely women, I guess.

RocketQueen said...

Tsk tsk, Julia. You're going to look pretty bad when it comes out later that you *were* part of the reason for the divorce. Better to say nothing than lie.

Miss X said...

This implies there is not and never was a relationship between her & Michael. Or the AJ defense of "the marriage was already over"...I think JS just made herself tabloid fodder. Everyone is going to want to see evidence of JS & MCH together.

Missy said...

I`m convinced he`s gay.

Daveb said...

There is the alternative explaination that she was never involved with him and simply offended at unfounded internet gossip. This would especially be true if she is involved with someone else and concerned that this gossip might hurt that relationship.

In the divorce papers Jennifer filed, the separation date was August 9th. So maybe Julia got involved with him after that. This statement doesn't say she's not sleeping/romantically involved with him, which would have been pretty easy to add, but that she's not the cause for the split.

On the other hand, Jennifer is asking for spousal support, so maybe she fiddled with the separation dates to help him out in exchange for that. Hollywood is a sneaky place.

Mooshki said...

I believe her. She's one of the few classy actresses around, and I don't think she would cheat with a married man.

Sylvia said...

She is saying she is not the cause for the divorce. Does not mean they are not dating as far as I see it.

MCH said...

Interesting that she chose to release the statement....

@Mooshki - That is what I'm thinking too.

I've never heard anything bad about her before.....?? First time for everything I guess.

Erin said...

Spousal support? Really? They were married for a blink. I guess she's worried her part on the show is about to be absolved.

RocketQueen said...

@Erin - Lainey is suggesting that she is requesting spousal report in return for fudging the dates of separation as a favour to him. She's also suggested for three days running that he and Stiles are totally doing it.

KellyLynn said...

I don't get the impression that Julia would be a home wrecker in the first place. Maybe there was an attraction, but I don't think they consummated it.

As far as Jennifer is concerned, it is awfully hard to spend every day at work with someone and then come home to see them, too.

"Lainey is suggesting that she is requesting spousal report in return for fudging the dates of separation as a favour to him. She's also suggested for three days running that he and Stiles are totally doing it."

What kind of favor would it be to fudge the dates?

RocketQueen said...

@sunnyside - basically, if he and Julia have been together for the last couple of months, her pushing the date back suggests that they were were already separated before Julia & Michael started humping.

lanasyogamama said...

I'm with Mooshki, she seems pretty classy to me.

ea73 said...

I'm inclined to think that it's more likely she'd have an affair with Jennifer Carpenter than Michael C. Hall. I think they're all gay-not that there's anything wrong with that!

Tenley said...

Well I have to admit the first thing I thought about the split was -- WTF? He gets over cancer and she dumps his ass as fast as possible? That's a nasty thought, I admit, but that's what I thought. Maybe Julia came out with a statement pronto because she there is good reason for her to be pissed off that the split is being insinuated to be on her part if it is something a little uglier on Jennifer's part.

chihuahuense said...

I think Julia Stiles is beautiful and I hope she's not a part of it.

SugaMama said...

I don't think these two should reproduce.

ChasingHeaven said...

I believe her.
