Stamos, Romijn Split

Married life is over for "Full House" actor John Stamos and "X-Men" actress Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, the former Victoria's Secret model. The couple has separated after five years of marriage, publicist Lewis Kay said Monday.

"The split is amicable and they have asked that the media please respect their privacy regarding this situation during this difficult time," Kay said.

The spokesman said the couple had no further comment.

Stamos, 40, and Romijn, 31, met in 1994 at a Victoria's Secret fashion show and began dating two months later. They married in September 1998.

The actress appeared in "X-Men," "X2: X-Men United," "Femme Fatale" and "Rollerball" and she appears in the upcoming films "The Punisher" and "Godsend."

Stamos, best-known for his role as Jesse in "Full House" from 1987 to 1995, played John Sears in last year's cable TV movie "The Reagans." In recent years, he's played on the Broadway stage.

In October, Stamos replaced Antonio Banderas as the film director obsessed with women in the Tony Award-winning revival of "Nine" at New York's Eugene O'Neill Theatre.

He had also replaced Matthew Broderick in the revival of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" and starred as the master of ceremonies in the long-running Roundabout Theatre Company production of "Cabaret" at Studio 54.
