Lauren Graham and Peter Krause have decided to part ways after spending a total of 10 years together.
Graham’s rep confirmed the breakup, revealing how the actors “quietly ended their relationship last year.”
Lauren Graham And Peter Krause Break Up After An Entire Decade
The two have had a long history as friends prior to their romance, having met while on the set of the NBC sitcom “Caroline in the City” in 1995.
However, they didn’t begin dating until 2010, when they played brother and sister on the NBC series “Parenthood.”
Graham told reporters back in 2010 that the relationship was “so fun” and “so easy,” but said timing and shyness kept them from connecting when they met in the 1990s.
“I think we liked each other [but] he asked me over to his house to play a board game ― and that’s exactly what we ended up doing,” she said. “So I was like, ‘This guy doesn’t like me. Who actually plays a board game?’ The timing wasn’t right. I don t think either of us was ready.”
The two made their first red carpet appearance in November 2010, just after going public with their romance, while attending the Saban Free Clinic’s 34th annual dinner gala at The Beverly Hilton hotel.
Graham also detailed the beginning stages of their romance during the interview. “Nobody knew about it for a while because we like to be at home, cooking and not going out,” she explained. “I’ve also been really protective of it because it’s important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show.”
At the time, she was working on the Disney+ series “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” which was shot in Vancouver.
“Normally that’s a two-hour flight and you come home on the weekends, but I couldn’t do that. So we were separated for almost five months, which had never happened before,” she divulged.
And when she did finally return home, Graham noticed “more piles” around the house and that Krause and his son from a previous marriage had “really bonded.”
She said the bonding “was fantastic,” but that it left her feeling out of the picture.
“Like, it was more that they were the married couple,” she said.
