Meryl Streep and her husband Don Gummer have been separated for more than six years, it has emerged.

The three-time Oscar-winning actress has been married to the American sculptor since 1978.

But in a statement to Sky News, a spokesperson for Streep: “Don Gummer and Meryl Streep have been separated for more than six years, and while they will always care for each other, they have chosen lives apart.”

They have four children together – musician Henry, 43, and Mamie, 40, Grace, 37, and Louisa, 32 – who have all followed their mother into acting.

They also have five grandchildren, with daughter Grace most recently welcoming a daughter with Grammy-winning British musician Mark Ronson.

Streep, 74, and Gummer, 76, last appeared together at the 2018 Oscars. Streep was pictured on Friday at the Princesa de Asturias Awards 2023 wearing her wedding ring.
