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.

Uggie certainly knows how to make an impression.
The 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier and star of last year's hit film The Artist has cemented his place – literally – in Hollywood history with a paw-print ceremony outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre today.
With the ceremony, during which the affable pooch plopped all four of his paws into wet cement, Uggie joins nearly 200 other celebrities who have left their hand- and footprints in front of the theatre.

Three months ago, The Artist actress Penelope Ann Miller capped off a successful awards show season with the less-celebratory news that she was splitting from her husband of nearly 12 years.
But the couple won't be separating after all, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Miller, 48, who had a supporting role in the Oscar-winning film, dismissed her request for legal separation from James Huggins on June 15.

Angelina Jolie might need a glam squad to help her get ready, but Uggie? He didn't need much prep before snapping on his custom Chopard collar and strolling down the red carpet at the Academy Awards.
"We bathed him yesterday and gave him a nice blow-dry," Uggie's trainer Omar Von Muller told PEOPLE on Oscar Sunday. "That's about it."

He might have been one-tenth the size of all the other Oscar guests, but it was hard not to miss Uggie at Sunday night's 84th annual Academy Awards.
When he walked onto the stage to help accept the Best Picture award for The Artist, the adorable Jack Russell terrier wore an eye-catching collar custom-designed for him by Chopard.
The collar features a black satin bow tie and a charm made of 18 karat yellow gold inscribed with his name. The piece will be auctioned, and the proceeds will benefit The Amanda Foundation, an animal rescue organization.

Considering that last year's Oscars were so thumpingly bad – co-host James Franco behaved as if he'd been taken out of the freezer, left on the counter and unevenly thawed – last night's broadcast was a welcome relief.
The strength of the show ultimately rests on the heat of the biggest contests – I doubt Americans were on the edge of their seats wondering whether the cosmically inscrutable Tree of Life could score an upset over the French silent The Artist – but the production looked great and flowed well.
Billy Crystal was hosting for his ninth time, brought on after Eddie Murphy dropped out in November, and it felt no different from his seventh, eighth or (if one were to project) fifty-seventh time.

"Oh, no – not her ... again," was what winner Meryl Streep feared those inside L.A.'s Hollywood & Highland Center were thinking on Oscar night. Was she ever wrong.
The actress, who's been nominated a historic 17 times, won the Best Actress Oscar at Sunday's 84th annual Academy Awards for The Iron Lady, in which she played former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
When all the gold dust had settled, Hugo went home with five technical Oscars, but the big winner in the major categories was The Artist, which, among its five awards, was named Best Picture of the Year.
The captivating $12 million, mostly silent, black-and-white movie also took the honors for director Michel Hazanavicius, its costume design, musical score and, in his introduction to American audiences, its leading man, Jean Dujardin, who was named Best Actor.
"Formidable! Merci beau coup, I love you!" the handsome Frenchman, 39, shouted. "I love your country." Before practically losing his breath, Dujardin went on to tell his wife, actress Alexandra Lamy, "I love you."

Octavia Spencer and Christopher Plummer have new fireplace mantel adornments – Oscars!
After a splashy opening with host Billy Crystal and bestowing honors in technical categories, the 84th annual Academy Awards finally got down to the business of presenting its first acting honor Sunday night. Octavia Spencer, whom Las Vegas oddsmakers gave a 70-percent chance of winning, did just that, taking the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her turn as the rebellious maid Minnie Jackson in The Help.
"I'm freakin' out," said the actress, who received the first standing ovation of the evening. Choking back tears, then finally unable to control their flow, Spencer, 32, said she needed to thank all her families: the one in her native Alabama, the one in L.A., her Help family. She also thanked the Academy for letting her sit next to the hottest guy in the room – Tate Taylor, director of The Help.
