The pair recently announced their split to friends and family. 

The six-time Oscar nominee once opened up to People about her views on relationships.

She said at the time: “Too many women define themselves in terms of a man.

“Men blossom under the nurturing of a good woman, while women don’t often get that benefit from a man.

“I think of men and women as two different species. Katharine Hepburn said they should live next door and visit each other once in a while. Not a bad idea.”
