Vanessa Kirby and Callum Turner, who met on the set of the 2014 British post-war comedy Queen & Country, reportedly fell victim as a couple to dueling busy schedules, according to The Sun. As it is, Kirby is arguably a more recognizable name thanks to roles like her blockbuster turn opposite Jason Statham and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in 2019’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Turner, however, is a burgeoning star in his own right. He co-starred in the 2020 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, led by Anya Taylor-Joy in the titular role, and got declared by British Vogue to be “Britain’s new leading man.”
Per The Sun‘s source, Kirby and Callum both had too much on their professional plates for their personal lives recently, saying, “As their careers have taken off, their relationship has suffered and they have gradually grown apart.” Although the insider told The Sun that the couple decided to separate in 2020, people noticed something was amiss when Kirby, as reported by Metro, was seen at the 2021 BAFTA awards without her better half.
Luckily, “it’s all very amicable,” as the source claimed. We wish these two busy British bees continued personal happiness as their professional success continues to grow.
