Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish File for Divorce Almost a Year After Split
It’s finish. Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish filed for divorce nearly a year after the blue crush star announced their separation in August 2021, We Weekly confirmed.
Bosworth, 39, filed for separation from the official screenwriter, 51, on Friday, July 15, in Los Angeles County Court.
The former couple began dating in 2011 and married in August 2013. Eight years later, the actress shared via Instagram that they had separated.
“Our hearts are full as we have never been more in love and deeply grateful for each other than in this decision to go our separate ways,” Bosworth wrote. “Together, for the past ten years, Michael and I have chosen love, every time. We hold hands as tightly today as we tangled our fingers on our wedding day.
The two did not share any children. Polish, however, shares daughter Jasper, 23, with makeup artist Jo Strettell. Bosworth said Flaunt in March 2020 that being a mother-in-law was “by far the greatest unexpected gift of her life”. Jasper, who was 13 when she met Bosworth, calls her stepmother “Madre”.
Several months after revealing the news via social networks, We Weekly confirmed in January 2022 that the The Return of Superman the star was in a relationship with Justin Long – and has been for some time.
“They’ve been dating for a few months now,” a source says. We at the time. “They secretly went on a few escapades together. They both like to travel.
The insider added that while the two “don’t hide the fact that they’re together,” they “just keep it low key and private about their relationship.”
Bosworth and Long, 43, first sparked romance rumors in May 2021 while filming a movie together. That same month, the I-Earth alum gave a heartfelt shout out via Instagram to the He’s just not very interested star, accompanied by several flirtatious photos.

The couple’s relationship seemed to heat up over the year, as the two were spotted kissing in Long’s hometown of Fairfield, Connecticut in November 2021. They were also spotted together in the Massachusetts the same month.
Although neither actor has officially confirmed their romance, as of December 2021, the Accepted star revealed on her “Life is short” podcast that he has a girlfriend – one who loves the polarizing combination of pineapple and pizza.
“It’s funny that my girlfriend said that…she likes pineapple too,” Long said. “I’ve never been with someone who likes pineapple on pizza.”
While Bosworth has been mum on her pizza topping preferences, she reportedly divulged to Fortunate magazine in 2013 that she was “living” on the Italian favorite before her marriage to the Polish.
