(Newser) – Her fictional marriage lasted, her real one not so much. My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos filed for divorce from her husband of 24 years, Ian Gomez, on Tuesday in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences, reports the Blast. In a statement, Vardalos, seeking joint custody of their 11-year-old daughter, says the pair separated almost exactly a year ago. "Our relationship became a friendship so the decision to end the marriage is completely mutual and amicable," the 55-year-old adds, per People. Gomez, a fellow actor, is best known for his TV roles on The Drew Carey Show and Cougar Town. (Read more Nia Vardalos stories.)
