JASON Segel and girlfriend Alexis Mizter have split after eight years together.
The couple said that "change happens" as they broke the news.
Alexis confirmed their split in an emotional Instagram post, which included a selfie of the former couple donning small smiles expressions.
She began: "This is a photo of two best friends.
"This guy and I have shared so much life together. Changed each other at a soul deep level. All for the better.
"The depth of our bond was something I could never have anticipated.
"I’ve never spent so much time with another person, grown so much alongside someone else, laughed so much, cried so much, shared so much."
She added that it is "odd to write about the end of a relationship," noting: "Especially when the friendship that still exists is so full of life.
"But change happens and we made the decision quite a while ago to let ourselves grow away from what our relationship had been and into what it was becoming."
Alexis admitted it felt "strange" to announce their split on social media and that some people won't find it "necessary."
After stating that "having a public romantic relationship is not easy," she continued: "Ending one feels like navigating a road that doesn’t even exist.
"We are private people when it comes to our personal lives and I intend to keep it that way."
She continued: "My feelings while writing this are only ones of love and gratitude.
"Gratitude to the universe for putting this man in my life the way it did and then allowing us the grace to decide that what we had, could become more.
"Because that is what our friendship feels like. More. More than either of us could have asked for in another person."
Alexis then explained that the post is "a tribute to love and friendship and those relationships that make life worth living."
She added: "Thank you J for being my best friend. The person who shares all my favorite jokes, sees who I really am and all I want to be, loves me unconditionally and makes me always strive to be bigger and better than I was yesterday.
"I will never stop cheering you on with every cell of my body. I will never stop loving you unconditionally."
The caption concluded with Alexis explaining that she posted an old photo of the pair "because we both love it and it was from such a great day."
Jason, 41, and Alexis, 30, began dating in 2014, while they made their red carpet debut together at the Spirit Awards in 2016.
The low-key couple often kept details of their romance private, though Alexis occasionally shared photos of the How I Met Your Mother actor on Instagram.
