A divorce filing for Rob Doe and Veronica Doe probably wouldn't make headlines, but TMZ reveals why the paperwork filed Tuesday is creating buzz. The Does are really Geena Davis and her husband, Reza Jarrahy, the latter of whom is the party behind the filing, citing irreconcilable differences. It was the fourth marriage for Davis, 62. Per the Telegraph, she'd previously been wed to restaurateur Richard Emmolo for two years and actor Jeff Goldblum for three years—a union that ended when Goldblum left Davis for actress Laura Dern, which led to Davis marrying Dern's ex, director Renny Harlin (a marriage that lasted for five years). That makes her marriage to Jarrahy, 47, the longest one yet. People reports they were married in September 2001—almost 17 years.

E! Online cites a 2006 Good Housekeeping article in which Davis touched on their 15-year age difference, noting that even though she initially thought the idea of a relationship was a "little far-fetched," the gap seemed less noticeable the more time they spent together. "It wasn't like I was sitting there saying, 'What do you mean, you don't know who the Beatles are?'" The couple have a 16-year-old daughter and 13-year-old twin boys. Per Jarrahy's divorce filing, which notes they've been separated since late last year, Jarrahy is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the kids, as well as spousal support; he also is requesting Davis be denied spousal support from him. (Davis is among a group of celebrities who've had babies after 40.)
