Golden Globe-winning actress Laura Dern was seen with her two kids – son Ellery, 11, and daughter Jaya, 7 – at the beach in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (September 18). Joined by friends, the trio enjoyed the sand and surf on the sunny afternoon.
After ten yeas together, Laura is no longer with the kids’ father, musician Ben Harper.
After he filed for divorce in October 2010, they were spotted at the Golden Globes together in February of this year. But just five months later, Laura filed papers reactivating the divorce proceedings.
She is asking for primary physical custody of the children and joint legal custody.
Watch for Laura to light up the big screen in The Master, costarring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
The film chronicles charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” (Hoffman) whose faith-based organisation begins to catch on in America.
Set in the 1950s, the storyline is said to tell the story of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Church of Scientology.
