‘I Don’t Think It’s A Failure’: Jodie Turner-Smith Says Divorcing Joshua Jackson Is ‘Exciting’

British actress Jodie Turner-Smith is speaking out about her divorce from “Dawson’s Creek” star Joshua Jackson.

“Sometimes things we really want to work just don’t end up working. And that’s OK,” the 37-year-old celebrity told The Sunday Times in an interview published Sunday. “The most important thing is that you choose what’s healthiest for you and your family and definitely your children.”

Turner-Smith filed for divorce from Jackson in October, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The pair was married in 2019 and share a 3-year-old daughter, Juno.

As the actress said during the interview, she thought it was time to “make a move because I believe that there are visible scars from staying in places that are not good for us. And they don’t just affect us, they affect everybody around us.”

“I don’t think it’s a failure,” Turner-Smith said of getting divorced. “We obviously had such a beautiful moment together. And now it’s time for a new moment for both of us. And how exciting! The bravest thing in the world is to recognize when something’s not working and to make a move, and I always want to set that kind of example for my daughter.”

The “Anne Boleyn” actress said she’s in no hurry to get into another relationship, saying being a single parent has been a positive experience so far. 

“I am a single mother and it is incredible,” she told the outlet. “Right now is a sensitive time, the time for me to be focused on her. I’m enjoying not having to focus on a man. Men take up a lot of space!”

“Everything really is for her,” Turner-Smith added. “Motherhood makes me more powerful. Now I know I am capable of so much because I became a mother. Thank God I became a mother! Not only has it been revealed to me exactly how powerful I am, but it has also been revealed to me that I deserve the world.”

Jackson had previously said that he didn’t think he wanted to get married until he met Turner-Smith. “If we had met five years earlier we probably would have had a torrid affair, but all the rest of this stuff, I was just not ready. I didn’t think I ever wanted to get married,” Jackson said in April 2023, per Harper’s Bazaar.
