Actor Ethan Hawke has confirmed his marriage to Uma Thurman is over for good and they will divorce.

The couple split last year (03) amid reports Hawke had had an affair with a model while making movie Taking Lives in Canada.

Hawke has never confessed to adultery, but he insists the couple's five year marriage was in trouble long before the press caught on.

He tells DETAILS magazine, "We'll probably get a divorce."

"The story of us breaking up over infidelity has been an annoying one. If our problems were that simple, we'd still be together. Uma and I were having troubles long before the press got a hold of us."

But Hawke hints reports he was unfaithful may have been accurate in a bizarre tribute to adulterous political leaders: "MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. suffered from infidelity, so did John F Kennedy. You're more likely to find great leadership coming from a man who likes to have sex with a lot of women than one who's monogamous."
