Its official. Mena Suvari has called it quits from her husband, concert promoter Simone
Sestito after just 18 months of marriage. The reasons for the divorce were cited as “irreconcilable differences” according to papers filed in LA County Superior Court. This famous actress has also stated that she wants her name changed back to Mena Suvari and not Mena Suvari Sestito.
After a romance that started in the Toronto Film Festival in 2007, the couple wed at a private church in Vatican City in 2010. Suvari was 32 and Sestito 26 at the time of marriage. Mena Suvari was previously married to cinematographer Robert Brinkmann and ended their five year marriage back in 2005.
Mena Suvari follows another high profile couple namely Katy Perry and Russell Brand who recently split and was married for less than 2 years.
Although she started acting at a very young age, her breakout role came in “American Beauty” in 1999 in which she received a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Actress in Supporting Role. She was also nominated in the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards for “Favorite Actress Newcomer” for the same role. The same year she was seen again in the hit comedy American Pie and went on to reprise her role in the American Pie 2. In 2000 she became involved in HBO’s hit series Six Feet Under and won a nomination in the category of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
