In a joint statement to People on Friday about the dissolution of their partnership, the "Greatest Showman" star, 54, and Furness, 67, stated that their "path is now altering.

We have chosen to split in order to pursue our own growth since our path is currently changing,

 They stated. On the set of the Australian TV show "Correlli" in 1995, Jackman and Furness got to know one another.
