Robert De Niro has split from his wife after more than 20 years of marriage, it has been reported.
The Oscar-winning actor, 75, and wife Grace Hightower, 63, have been living apart for some time, according to multiple reports in the US.
The couple married in 1997 and have two children. It was De Niro’s second marriage.
"Sometimes things don’t work out the way you hope or want them to," a source close to the family told People magazine.
