A Lord of the Rings star has separated from his wife.

Karl Urban said it was a mutual decision to part ways with his wife Natalie Wihongi.

Urban played the role of Eomer in the second and third instalments of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings.

He had also starred in The Chronicles of Riddick and Dredd.

Wihongi  was his makeup artist on TV movie The Privateers and they have two sons, Hunter, 13, and Indiana, 8.

They share a home valued at $5.4 million bought  in Herne Bay, Auckland, in January last year.

In a statement, the actor said: "We are committed to maintaining our family relationship, working together to ensure that our children are affected as little as possible.

"We request that people respect our family’s privacy at this time and will be making no further comment."
