While there were many surprising celebrity breakups last year, from Lukas Gage and Chris Appleton to Meryl Streep and Don Gummer, the divorce between Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson really stopped fans in their tracks. After all, the two, who had been together since 2018, also share a three-year-old daughter named Juno.

Now, a few months since their September split, however, the actress is pulling back the curtains on what really happened in their relationship, and how she’s doing now.

“We obviously had such a beautiful moment together,” the After Yang actress told The Times, per Us Weekly. “And now it’s time for a new moment for both of us. And how exciting!

Most of all, it seems like Turner-Smith has full confidence that their breakup was the right decision. “The bravest thing in the world is to recognize when something’s not working and to make a move,” she said. “And I always want to set that kind of example for my daughter.”

“Sometimes things we really want to work just don’t end up working,” she continued. “And that’s OK. The most important thing is that you choose what’s healthiest for you and your family and definitely your children.”

“There are so many different moments in our life where we look at ourselves and say, ‘Who am I and am I being true to that?’ If the answer is no, then you have to make a move because I believe that there are visible scars from staying in places that are not good for us,” Turner-Smith reflected. “And they don’t just affect us, they affect everybody around us.”

And while Turner-Smith and Jackson’s split, albeit a slightly contentious one between them at first, was a tough one to learn, we’re glad they managed to see the positive and come out the other side feeling optimistic.

As for their new dating lives, while Turner-Smith hasn’t been spotted with anyone just yet, Jackson was recently rumored to be dating fellow actress Lupita Nyong’o. We’ll stay tuned for those next chapters!
