‘A League of Their Own’ star Megan Cavanagh, who played the classic character ‘Marla Hooch’ in the movie, has ended her marriage after her filmmaker Anne Chamberlain filed for divorce.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Anne Chamberlain filed to end the couple’s marriage earlier this week. The filmmaker cited, “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
In the filing, it appears Anne is asking for spousal support from the movie star. Megan has yet to respond to the divorce filing.
The couple has been married since 2008.
Both Megan and her now estranged wife Anny celebrated the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act’s recognition, which effectively put an end California’s Proposition 8 marriage amendment, by getting a marriage license.
“I’m just so thrilled that I lived to experience this, and I get to share it with the love of my life,” Anne said at the time.
The couple was photographed with a sign that read “just married” in an appearance at the famed West Hollywood hotspot, ‘The Abbey.’
Cavanagh made her film debut in Penny Marshall’s ‘A League of Their Own’ which also starred Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and Lori Petty.
In one of the most classic moments in the movie, Marla Hooch jumps on stage and sings “It’s Gotta Be You” while drunk with the other players on a night out on the town.
Cavanagh’s baseball uniform from the movie is on permanent display inside the Baseball Hall of Fame, and ‘A League of Their Own’ is preserved by the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. Bottom Line…she is a part of baseball and movie history.
