American Beauty's beauty, Mena Suvari, has filed for divorce from her husband of five years, German-born cinematographer Robert Brinkmann, the actress’s publicist has confirmed.

Suvari's court papers cite irreconcilable differences for the split, publicist Melissa Kates tells the Associated Press. Suvari, 26, and Brinkmann, 43, were married in March 2000.

In the 1999 hit American Beauty, Suvari played a sexy high-school cheerleader who sparked the imagination of the older leading character, played by Kevin Spacey. The Rhode Island-born Suvari’s other credits include Beauty Shop and American Pie 2.

In Hollywood, Brinkmann’s credits include The Cable Guy and Encino Man.
