‘Pitch Perfect’: Stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin Divorcing After Two Years of Marriage
The couple announced the separation today with a joint statement.
“We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably,” the statement read, according to People. “We kindly ask for privacy as we navigate this transition.”
Were there signs that this was coming?
Often when there is tension in a celebrity relationship, there are a number of telltale signs of trouble in paradise, if you are paying close enough attention.
Astin recently “stopped wearing his ring,” a source told the outlet. He has also reportedly been talking about the split with friends.
How did the couple meet?
The couple first met on the set of Pitch Perfect in 2012.
“We were friends first and just hit it off,” Camp told Glamour in 2014. “He’s just so great, and he’s a Libra too. We didn’t really have a scene together, but he’s just such a fun guy. He’s great.”
At the time, Camp was still married to her ex-husband Michael Mosley, so the two couldn’t really take their relationship beyond friendship.
But eventually, she and her ex split and Astin asked her out.
“He was dating somebody, and I had been through [a divorce] and he was like, ‘Do you want to go on a date?'” she told the outlet. “I remember thinking, Well, he’s younger than me. He’s five years younger. He’s 26, and I’m 31. But I was like, ‘You know what? OK! Let’s do it, let’s see.’ He’s literally my best friend.”
Though he was in a relationship when he first met her, Astin immediately knew that Camp was someone he wanted to get closer to.
“I knew the second I met her that I wanted to know her, and I just wanted to be in her life. I knew that,” he once told PopSugar. “I never saw an end of wanting to be in her life, so to say that it’s love at first sight, there’s some truth to that. I think that I just can’t imagine my life without her, so there’s nothing I’d rather do than marry her.”
Camp and Astin’s marriage
In January of 2016, the couple announced on their Instagram pages that they were engaged. They were married in September of that year.
The first year of marriage went great for the lovebirds.
“This has been the fastest year of my life,” Camp told People before the pair’s one year wedding anniversary. “We fall in love with each other more and more every day we’ve been together. And I know it sounds, like, gross, everyone’s probably gonna throw up about that, but it’s actually really true.”
“Knowing that I have my best friend and that we are totally committed to one another and just to have that comfort and that safety and that bond where you know you’ve found your person,” she continued. “The longer you stay with somebody, the closer you get, and it’s really the best thing in the world to have another person that loves you just as much as you love them.”
