After more than 11 years together Ashley Judd and Indy Car driver husband Dario Franchitti are calling it quits. They married in Franchitti's native Scotland in 2001.

The separation seems to be amicable as both Judd and Franchitti tweeted that they will be 'family forever' and still love and respect each other.

Judd, an actress and advocate, is rumored to be looking towards political aspirations. More specifically she's been asked about running for the Kentucky Senate seat against current seat holder Mitch McConnell in upcoming elections. While this could be a reason for tension between the two it's not clear that this is a reason for the split.

The couple has been living in Tennessee and have no children.
