Mena Suvari has filed for divorce from her second husband, Simone Sestito. The actress filed in January.
The American Reunion star used an interview with Boston Common magazine to set the record straight about her reasons for filing – fame did not cause problems between her and her husband, an Italian concert promoter. She insists she is the typical Aquarian in that she doesn’t let fame affect her relationships.
This is her second marriage, her first was to Robert Brinkmann, a cinematographer and 17 years her senior. That relationship ended after five years of marriage. Suvari says:
“It’s taken years to get to know myself. I had never really taken time to cultivate who I was. I’ve felt drained by it. But I feel like I’m really, finally, content at this point in my life. I’m accepting of who I am and how diverse I am and honoring that. All of it.”
