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.
