Cameron Marriage Hits Iceberg

06/01/1999 at 12:00 AM EDT

The marriage of Linda Hamilton and James Cameron appears to have sunk. The actress cited irreconcilable differences in her divorce petition filed in Los Angeles Monday. She is seeking custody of their 5-year-old daughter, Josephine, although she is willing to allow visits with the Oscar-winning director of "Titanic." The Superior Court filing also seeks spousal and child support, and requests their assets be divided. The couple married June 24, 1997, and split shortly after this past March's Academy Awards ceremony. Hamilton starred in Cameron's 1984 "The Terminator" and the 1991 sequel "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," as well as the "Beauty and the Beast" TV series.

  • In other news of James Cameron, MAD magazine's special year-end issue names his "Titanic" Oscar speech -- in which he solemnly asked for a moment of silence to remember those who perished on the real Titanic, then happily shouted, "Now let's go party till dawn!" -- among the "dumbest people, events and things of 1998." The speech ranked No. 2 silly thing of the year, one place ahead of Jerry Seinfeld's seemingly endless TV farewell. No. 1 dumbest thing? "A no-brainer," said MAD coeditor Nick Meglin. "Even by Washington DC standards, the level of dumbness achieved by (President Bill) Clinton, (independent counsel Kenneth) Starr and (former White House intern Monica) Lewinsky was unparalleled."
