Many were shocked when they heard that mad Men Co-stars Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel divorced after 8 years of marriage. But an anonymous source believes the actor’s unique lifestyle choices may have played a part in the split.
Vincent Kartheiser has had a long acting career
Kartheiser started acting at the age of 5. From local theater productions to commercial voiceovers, the actor spent most of his childhood acting. As he grew up and moved to Hollywood, Kartheiser landed roles in films such as thought leader and Crime and Punishment in the Suburb. He is also known for shows like HE and Angel.
His big break came in 2007 when he was cast in the hit drama mad Men as Peter Campbell. The show was hailed as one of the best series of its time. It has also won many awards, including five Golden Globes, 16 Emmys, and a Peabody Award, among countless other nominations.
Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel divorce
Kartheiser began dating Bledel, who became a household name with her starring role Gilmore Girlsin 2012. At the time, Bledel had a recurring role in mad Men as Beth Dawes, who is having an affair with Pete. The couple announced their engagement the following year and tied the knot in 2014. They share a son who was born in 2015. The couple is known to be private and have not appeared publicly in years.
“That’s something I’ve come to realize about the most important things in my life. When I share them with the world and I open the door to their seething anger that they need to vent or their adoration that they want to flaunt, it diminishes them,” Kartheiser said in a 2014 interview with Vulture. “It makes it cheaper. It weakens it. And it’s magical, love, and all of that is… deeply spiritual, and it just doesn’t feel right.”
News broke earlier this year that Kartheiser had filed for divorce. It appears the couple will split amicably; Less than a week after the filing, there was a submission for a Proposed Judgment and Settlement.
Vincent Kartheiser’s “frugal lifestyle” helped him survive the child star
Although the exact reason for the split is unknown, an anonymous source told Us Weekly that it may have something to do with the actor’s “lone wolf” tendencies.
“They didn’t have a large circle of friends, but they both made up for that with very thriving and busy careers — almost to the point of failure,” the source explained. They also shed some light on the notoriously private couple’s life together.
“Alexis is a little eccentric herself, but she’s incredibly normal compared to Vinnie,” the insider shared. “For starters, Vinnie lives by an unbreakable code of humility and a low-spending lifestyle. That’s something he’s credited with helping him survive the crazy world he started out in as a child actor, and that’s part of what drew Alexis to him — he was different.”
Kartheiser has previously spoken out about his “frugal lifestyle”, telling The Guardian that he doesn’t own a car, toilet or television.
“Probably I should be worried. Sometimes I look around my house and think, Is this normal, Vinny? I mean, it’s a little bit more than just a remodel…” he joked. This lifestyle is not due to lack of money. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kartheiser is worth $6 million.
