She confirmed her split from her husband on Saturday, and Mamie Gummer headed straight for some home comforts.

The Side Effects actress’ spokesperson insists that, ‘it’s very amicable,’ however.

The couple engaged in 2009 and wed in July of 2011 at Mamie’s parents’ estate in Connecticut.

When the two met while performing in the spring 2008 production of Les Liasons Dangereuses on Broadway, actor Benjamin cited the big movie hit of the same name to say that Mamie ‘was the Uma to my Keanu.’

In a January interview with New York magazine, Benjamin talked about the trouble he got in during college that he pulls from for character motivation.

‘Don’t trust somebody that don’t have a troubled period,’ he said.

Throughout his interview, Mamie sent him two texts.

‘What, Mamie?’ he joked with the interviewer. ‘She always worries about me in these things, and rightfully so.

‘I don’t have much experience doing it, so I never know when I’m going to sound like an ass.’
