Gemma Arterton has split from her husband. The Quantum of Solace star is said to be "devastated" after her two-year marriage to Stefano Catelli came to an end, and friends claim the pair went their separate ways a "couple of months ago".
A source told the MailOnline website:"It's sad, but her marriage is over. Gemma thought Stefano was the one. He really wore the trousers in the relationship, such was her devotion to him. It happened a couple of months ago. It was a mutual decision."
Gemma herself confirmed the news after misplacing a ring she was wearing while at Harvey Weinstein's bash at Loulou's
nightclub in London, telling newspaper columnist Richard Kay, "It's true
I've split with my husband but it's not my engagement ring. The ring is
diamonds and it means a lot to me."
Friends believe the 27-year-old beauty - who began dating Stefano, 40, in 2009 - won't have to stay single for long once she is ready to move on.
Another source said: "Gemma's gorgeous and there are scores of men who will be begging her for a date. But she's in no rush to move on."
Over the weekend, Gemma has been spending time with her friend Bradley Cooper, 38, as her pal was keen to cheer her up.
They enjoyed an evening at London's Rose club after a Silver Linings Playbook party on Friday (8 February), and spent Saturday (9 February) at a pre-BAFTA party at the city's nightspot Annabel's.
A source said: "Brad and Gemma have become firm friends and, as she's feeling down at the moment, he wanted to show her a good time while he's in London. After hanging out at Harvey Weinstein's Silver Linings bash at Little House Restaurant they decided to share a car to Rose, where they spent a few hours partying together at a table."
