Oscar-winning "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin and his wife, Alexandra Lamy, are splitting up after four years of marriage.

Britain's Daily Mail quoted him telling journalists at the Prix du Quai des Orfèvres literary event in Paris, on Tuesday, "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."
