As reported earlier this week, Michael C. Hall and his wife, Jennifer Carpenter have filed for divorce, but in a new twist some sources are implicating actress Julia Stiles as the reason for their separation.
Rumours are starting to circulate that Stiles and Michael C. Hall initiated their affair while filming Dexter Season 5, in which Stiles played the new love interest for Hall’s eponymous character, Dexter.
However Stiles has quickly spoken out to quash the rumour mill although some astute observers have noticed that while she denies being the reason for their split, she hasn’t denied having an affair with Hall.
“I have absolutely nothing to do with the split between Michael and Jennifer. We are good friends and enjoyed working together. This is a personal matter between them, and we should respect their privacy. Although I too prefer to keep my private life private, I felt compelled to dispel the rumours I was somehow the cause for this matter.”
With no denial regarding an affair it would seem that Stiles and Hall could be romantically involved. We can of course only speculate for now, but Hall and Carpenter were separated for some time prior to announcing their decision to divorce, and a relationship with Stiles could have developed during that time.
Questions are arising as to how the couple will cope with working together on the next season of Dexter, given that it was announced straight after the season 5 finale that a 6th has been given the green light. They are after all human beings with the same feelings and emotions as the rest of us, and one can only imagine the difficulties they will face having to work together again.
