    Len and Kate called an end to their relationship spanning 13 years in November 2015, with reports claiming the pair had secretly separated months before. 

    Prior to announcing their split Len was seen on various dates with much younger actress CJ Franco, 25.

    Len and Franco appear to have continued their romance in the wake of the split, although they have not been seen together since June of this year.

    Franco, who has appeared in TV shows Sketch Juice and No Chance at Love, was first seen with the film director in October 2015 – one month before his split with Beckinsale was announced. 

    Kate and Len, 43, first met on the set of Underworld – which Kate starred in and Len directed – in 2003.

    At the time of meeting, Len was married to a kindergarten teacher named Dana and Kate was in a relationship with Michael Sheen, who she shares 17-year-old daughter Lily with.

    Kate previously said of her relationship with Sheen, 47, she was ’embarrassed’ he had never asked her to marry him despite her feeling they were like a married couple.

    The Masters Of Sex star is currently dating comedienne Sarah Silverman, who Kate has famously got along with. 

    Beckinsale and Sheen dated from 1995 until 2003, after performing together in a traveling stage production of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull.

    Last year a source claimed that Len and Kate had split due to conflicting schedules as both parties often had to travel overseas due to their separate film commitments. 

    In 2012, during an interview with Parade Magazine, Kate gushed about the joys of working with her husband from time to time.

    She explained: ‘The first time we met each other was when we were filming Underworld, and then we worked together again after we’d been married a short while, and now we’ve been married seven years, so I’ve had quite a few different experiences along the way.

    ‘It’s different each time. We love it. I think one of the things we like least about our jobs is that it can force separation from each other.

    ‘One of the things that’s so nice about working together is that not only do we enjoy each other professionally, but we actually get to sleep in the same bed at night and hang out with our kid on the weekends, so it’s great.
