Rowan Atkinson splits from wife of 23 years

British actor Rowan Atkinson, best known for his onscreen appearances in the Mr. Bean series and Johnny English, has split from his wife Sunetra after 23 years. They haven’t been seen in public for some months. “They have split up,” a source close to their social circle said. “He has a new young lady friend.” Last week he was spotted with 31-year-old actress Louise Ford. Rowan and Louise appeared together in the West End comic play Quatermaine’s Terms last year. Rowan and Sunetra made their last public appearance together in August 2012. The 59-year-old actor met Sunetra, the daughter of an Indian engineer from West London, in the late ’80s when she was working as a makeup artist at the BBC. The actor hasn’t yet confirmed the split. He and Sunetra have two children — Benjamin, 20, and Lily, 19. ~Alexandra Sharova

    Wives or Husbands are not cars people. You don’t just trade them in for a newer model. Yeesh.
