Mena Suvari is THE American actress. She has been followed by the word “American” in her work as an actress. She broke onto the scene in American Pie and followed it with American Virgin and American Beauty. Recently she appeared in the new hit series, American Horror Story as the Black Dahlia. This April, Suvari will add a second sequel to the American Pie franchise with American Reunion.
This weekend, Suvari, 32, did a very American thing and filed for divorce from her second husband of 18 months, 25-year old Simone Sestito, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split from the concert promoter. TMZ reported that Suvari listed November 1, 2011 as the date of separation the divorce papers and requested her legal name Mena Suvari-Sestito be changed back to Mena Suvari. The two were married back in 2010 in Vatican City. In 2005, Suvari ended her first marriage with cinematographer Robert Brinkmann.
We never like to hear things not working out but hopefully she’s in a happier place when she begins the promotional tour for American Reunion which is about the entire cast of the first American Pie coming back for the high school reunion. Here’s a trailer for the film which is scheduled for a April 16 release.
