AceShowbiz - Actress Glenn Close, 68, and her husband David Shaw, a venture capitalist, went their separate ways after nine years of marriage. Her spokeswoman confirms to Page Six that the couple has divorced, adding that the marriage officially ended this summer.
"Glenn and David have been telling friends over the summer they are divorcing, and he'll remain living in Maine while Glenn moves back to New York full-time," said a source. "They've been separated for some time, and things are amicable between them."
Glenn Close and David Shaw tied the knot in Maine in 2006. It was her third walk down the aisle. She was first married to Cabot Wade in the late 1960s and then to James Marlas in the 1980s. She has no children with Shaw but shares a daughter with her ex, producer John Starke.
In the late 1980s, the actress shared to PEOPLE her thoughts on marriage, "Too many women define themselves in terms of a man ... In my marriages I was like an amoeba ... Men blossom under the nurturing of a good woman, while women don't often get that benefit from a man. I think of men and women as two different species. Katharine Hepburn said they should live next door and visit each other once in a while. Not a bad idea."
Then in 1991, she said, "I don't particularly think marriage is a natural state. Men and women are so vastly different ... Why put more pressure on by binding yourself to someone?"
