Kate split from director Len Wiseman after 11 years of marriage bacl in November 2015. The film producer, 44, was previously married to a kindergarten teacher, but they got divorced shortly after he met Kate on the set of Underworld in 2003. At the time, the Pearl Harbor actress was in a relationship with Michael Sheen, which subsequently ended during the movie production. Despite going their separate ways 13 years ago, Michael and Kate have remained the best of friends. They ended their eight year relationship in 2003 and are proud parents to their 18-year-old daughter Lily.
