Summary: Actress Scarlet Johansson has filed for divorce from her estranged husband.

While life in Hollywood seems glitzy and fun, it is also a detriment to those who wish to have a traditional family life. The toll of shooting across the world, being exposed to sexy new people, and constant instability often result in divorce, and actress Scarlett Johansson is the latest movie star victim to file.


Last summer, the 32-year-old actress split from Romain Dauriac, a French businessman, and the former lovers are now preparing to fight for custody of their daughter Rose in divorce court. The two were married in October 2014, one month after their daughter’s birth.

Johansson served Dauriac his official divorce papers on Tuesday, and he is being represented by Harold “Hal” Mayerson while she has retained attorney Judith Poller.

According to Page Six, the two disagree with how they should raise Rose.

“[Dauriac] plans to petition the court to allow him and his daughter to move to France,” Mayerson said. “He believes that her schedule makes it impossible for her to have physical custody — unless she intends to have her children raised by nannies and helpers.”

Johansson issued a statement to PEOPLE that she would not comment on the dissolution of her marriage to the press.

“As a devoted mother and private person and with complete awareness that my daughter will one day be old enough to read the news about herself, I would only like to say that I will never, ever be commenting on the dissolution of my marriage,” Johansson said. “Out of respect for my desires as a parent and out of respect for all working moms, it is with kindness that I ask other parties involved and the media to do the same.”

Recently, Johansson shot Ghost in the Shell in New Zealand, and she had told Playboy that it was difficult for her to be away from her child while she was working. She also shared how challenging it was to be an actress and a mother because of the time commitment of her job.

“It will probably get more challenging as she (my daughter) gets older, once she’s in school and her life is more established in one place,” Johansson had said. “It’s a struggle for a lot of people, because we exist in this weird nomadic industry where almost everybody on a crew has a family, and it’s hard. It’s hard on relationships; it’s hard on your partner, your kids, family in general, friends.”
