C'est fini for Oscar-winning French film star Jean Dujardin and his wife of four years, Alexandra Lamy.

The couple, who were married in the summer of 2009, have broken up, Dujardin told reporters Tuesday at a literary event in Paris.

"It has been eight months that tabloids have been trying to make me out as depressed, an alcoholic, a womanizer. This is no more, or less, than the story of a couple who are separating, like any other couple," the star of The Artist told journalists, according to several reports.

Dujardin, 41, and Lamy, 42, who were named the most popular couple in France in a poll last year, met in 1999 when they were both cast in the French TV series Un Gars, Une Fille. They also appeared together in 2012's The Players, which Dujardin co-directed and produced.

They had no children together. Dujardin has two sons and Lamy has a daughter, all from previous relationships.
