'X-Men's' James Marsden and wife Lisa Linde to divorce

October 1, 2011 |  1:32 pm

James Marsden and his wife Lisa Linde are calling it quits after 11 years of marriage. Linde filed for divorce on Sept. 23 citing irreconcilable differences with her hubby, best known as Cyclops in the “X-Men” franchise.

She is seeking spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of the couple’s son Jack and daughter Mary, People reports.

"This was a mutual decision,” a rep tells the magazine. They are committed to raising their kids together and remain great friends."

Marsden was already having a bad month in September after the weak opening of his gruesome thriller “Straw Dogs” costarring “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard. The violent remake scored a poor 36% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has earned just $8.8 million at the box office so far.

Despite it all, Marsden let loose the night his wife filed for divorce. TMZ got the star singing outside the Papaya King hot dog shop in New York at 4:30 a.m. Check out the video to hear him belt out “Very Superstitious” with friends.
