Toni Collette ends interviewer’s question about her divorce: ‘I don’t have a shaky time’
Toni Collette didn’t have time for an interviewer to ask her about her recent divorce.
In December last year, the Hereditary star announced that she is splitting from husband Dave Galafassi after 20 years of marriage.
The announcement came after photos of Galafassi were published in the Daily Mail shows him and another woman kissing, sitting and holding hands on a beach in Sydney, Australia.
In conversation with The times to promote their upcoming Amazon Prime series, The powerThe Australian actor was asked if meditation was helping her through “a shaky old time with her relationship.”
“I don’t have a shaky time at all,” she replied. “That’s a big assumption.”
The times’ Polly Vernon writes that she apologized and asked, “So are you alright?”
“I’m very fine. Thanks for your concern. It’s not something I really want to speak publicly about, but I’m fine. More than fine,” Collette said.
The couple released a joint statement on social media at the time of their divorce, which read: “It is with grace and gratitude that we announce our divorce. We are united in our decision and are parting with continued respect and caring for one another.
“Our children are of the utmost importance to us and we will continue to thrive as a family, albeit in different forms.”
However, The times notes that following the emergence of Galafassi’s photos, the statement was updated as follows: “After a considerable period of separation, it is with grace and gratitude that we announce our divorce.”
The former couple have two children together, 14-year-old daughter Sage Florence and 11-year-old Arlo Robert.
Galafassi is apparently now dating chiropractor Shannon Egan, the woman he was photographed on a beach date with.
Collette and Galafassi, who are both Australians, first met at an album launch party in 2002. They married in a Buddhist ceremony the following year.
In The power – an adaptation of Naomi Alderman’s 2016 bestseller – Collette plays Margot Cleary-Lopez, Seattle Mayor, a politician trying to operate in a world where women have suddenly developed the ability to administer electric shocks through their hands, which makes them the dominant sex.
The power will be available on Prime Video on March 31st.
