People.com reported Tuesday night that actress Ashley Judd and her husband, race-car driver Dario Franchitti, are splitting after more than a decade of marriage.

"We have mutually decided to end our marriage. We'll always be family and continue to cherish our relationship based on the special love, integrity, and respect we have always enjoyed," Judd, 44, and Franchitti, 39, told People exclusively in a statement on Tuesday. Tuesday evening on Twitter, both Judd and Franchitti sent out tweets that read, "family forever."

After being engaged for about two years, the Missing star and the racecar driver tied the knot in a private ceremony in Scotland in 2001.
