Jenna Fischer and her husband James Gunn announced that they are separating after almost seven years of marriage. Fischer, star of NBC’s The Office, posted a joint statement on her MySpace page saying, “We are sorry for any pain this causes family and friends. The enthusiasm we have expressed for each other’s lives, spirits and careers is real — we have been each other’s cheerleader and friend during the past six years and continue to be so now and in the future.”

Fischer also asked fans not to take sides or engage in mudslinging. “We appreciate your support over the years, and would be overjoyed to have you continue supporting us both. You might be tempted to make one of us ‘feel better’ by putting the other one down in a post. Please don’t — we still have the utmost respect for one another, and we’d have to delete you.”
