Balthazar Getty: ‘Oh, hey, my wife and I separated. Did I not mention that?’

By: The Superficial / July 21, 2008

After photos of him and a topless Sienna Miller emerged, actor Balthazar Getty decided to wait a full week to announce he and his wife have been separated. Maybe he digs the asshole vibe, I dunno. Here’s the statement Balthazar issued to the press via Us Magazine:

“The breakdown of a marriage is a very difficult and painful experience especially when children are involved,” Getty wrote. “In light of the fact that many pictures have surfaced in print and on the Internet which has caused myself and my family great embarrassment, I felt it necessary to at least acknowledge publicly that yes indeed my wife and I have separated and I will not be commenting any further.”

What’s so difficult about telling your children that Mommy keeps a cold wedding bed? My dad told me all the time. Sure, I was only two, but I’d throw my blocks at the oven to let him know I knew where he was coming from. I turned out just fine. *whips mouse at intern* Sorry your boyfriend left you!
