Ethan Hawke's marriage to Uma Thurman floundered when her career took off and his began to fail, the actor has confessed. The pair ended their six year marriage in 2004, when Thurman's career was on the rise and Hawke's was beginning to wane. Speaking on U.S. talk show Sunday Morning Shootout - due to air this weekend (19Aug07) - the actor says, "It's unfair when one person's career is taking off and the other is really suffering. "What happens — it's not that they're jealous of each other; it's that the person you share your life with isn't in the mood to support. You want to have a pity party for yourself, but they're off to the Golden Globes and you don't want to go because everyone is going to think you are jealous. "There's a certain geometry to life — that life has a certain math equation to it and if you're never together, you can't build a home. "Joanne Woodward put her career on the back burner for that marriage (to Paul Newman) to last. And something's got to give."
