By Antoinette Bueno
Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik are calling it quits.
The 39-year-old actress and the 47-year-old film producer announced they're separating after four years of marriage in a joint statement to ET on Friday. They share two children together, 4-year-old daughter Elise and 2-year-old son Charlie.
"After much discussion and a long period of contemplation we have decided we are better off as friends, business partners and co-parents rather than life partners," the statement reads. "We remain committed to our business, our values, and most of all, our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy at this time."
