Josh Brolin and Diane Lane have announced the end of their marriage more than eight years after their wedding day, which in Hollywood years equals a lifetime.

A rep for the "Gangster Squad" star and "The Perfect Storm" actress confirmed the split to Us Weekly. A source close to the couple tells the mag, "It was a mutual decision. It is very amicable. It's not ugly, it's just over." So, celebrities who managed to make a marriage last nearly a decade and are divorcing amicably? This is pretty much the unicorn of couples, right?

Things haven't always been peachy keen between this couple. Josh was arrested in 2004, just a few months after the pair's nuptials, for a misdemeanor domestic battery when they got into a physical fight. Diane has also been rumored to give Josh ultimatums about his drinking, and he was  arrested for public intoxication on New Year's Day this year.

Josh and Diane have both been through divorces before. Brolin was married to actress Alice Adair, who played a guest role on his TV western series, "Young Riders" in 1990. And Lane was previously married to "NCIS: Los Angeles" star Christopher Lambert.

Us Weekly reports the couple "split a couple of months ago."
