The 'Clueless' star's rep revealed the longtime couple's separation on Monday, ET can confirm

Alicia Silverstone and her husband, Christopher Jarecki, have separated, ET can confirm.

"They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years," the Clueless star's rep tells ET. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent.”

The pair started dating in 1997 and married in 2005. Their one child, 6-year-old son Bear Blue, was born on May 5, 2011.

Silverstone talked to ET about raising Bear at last year's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul premiere, specifically about introducing him to some of her past work as he gets older.

"I think it will be fun when he gets older," she said. "Some things I've tried to show him and I'm like, 'Oh, it still feels [like] he's [too] young.' We're a pretty no movies and TV family, so I'm very mindful of what it is that he sees, but in this case, I'm in it. It has a free pass."
