Everyone was shocked to hear Dexter's Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter were calling it quits after just two years of marriage, and while they're pretending it was an amicable split, we hear otherwise.
Sources on set of Dexter tell Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that Michael and his new co-star Julia Stiles "have a lot of chemistry and seemed to be extra cozy with each other."
Our source added, "The way he's been behaving lately you would have never thought his marriage just ended." Guess it helps that he's already moved on.
But it seems the two were trying to keep their affair under wraps, especially from crew members. Our on-set source says there was a sneaking suspicion Michael and Julia were doing the nasty on the down-low. "I figured something was definitely up once I heard about the divorce announcement," says our insider.
“Having been separated for some time, Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C Hall have filed for divorce,” their reps said in a joint statement on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, here's an interesting Blind Item I came across on Laineygossip.com earlier today:
I mentioned yesterday that there are a few more details about one of the recent splits announced in Hollywood this week. Turns out there was someone else: his love interest this season on his TV show. Their chemistry was so crazy and so evident to everyone that writer and producers, seeing it play out on set, actually cranked up their sex scenes to capture it for show. Her career has seen a resurgence since.
Eventually the two fell in love. They were together, very close, at a Halloween party in New York this fall hosted by a famously controversial writer (this isn’t a super important detail) and those who observed them that night are not surprised now that he’s ended it with his wife.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that he would fall for Julia while filming steamy sex scenes. He and Jennifer, who play brother and sister on the hit TV show, fell in love on set as well. From one co-star to another, pft. Bet Dexter's on everyone's sh*t list this Christmas for making things awkward on set. #justsaying.
