Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz split.
Explaining on what is going on between them, both Cruz and Matthew released a joint statement saying they "have decided to take time off as a couple. Due to busy work schedules and so much time apart, they mutually decided four weeks ago that separating was the best thing to do at this time."
