Starnberg - He lives in Berlin, she lives in Amsterdam. After four years of relationship, the distance was obviously too big. The agency of Sebastian Koch announced on Monday the separation of the actor from his colleague Carice van Houten.
Because of the high occupational burden of the two, it has become increasingly difficult to find enough time for each other. "We are both very sad that our love relationship is over, but continue to be in friendship," it said in a statement from the agency.
The 47-year-old chef had been widely praised for his role as a writer in the Oscar-winning Stasi film "The Lives of Others." He and 14-year-younger Dutchwoman van Houten had met in 2005 according to his agency. They had starred together in the movie "Black Book" and have been a couple ever since. Van Houten appeared in 2008 alongside Tom Cruise in the movie "Operation Valkyrie".
