Josh Lucas ''wouldn't wish divorce'' on his ''worst enemy''.

The 42-year-old actor split up with his wife Jessica Ciencin Henriquez in January - with whom he has 20-month-old son Noah Rev - and, although they are trying their best to stay friends, he admits it's a heartbreaking situation to go through.

He explained: ''We have been through a divorce and divorce isn't something I would wish on my worst enemy. Even when in our case we have managed to do it not only amicably but as -- hopefully in the end -- great friends, particularly because we have a young child that we both truly love.''

Meanwhile, the hunky star admits he's more inclined to accept playful and funny roles that will benefit his son because becoming a father has not only changed his life, but his career as well.

He explained to People magazine: ''Me becoming a father has changed absolutely everything in my life, period. I am more and more wanting to be a part of things that [are] playful and more the things I see my son really responding to and enjoying.''
