Filing for legal separation from James Huggins, the actress playing Doris Valentin in Michel Hazanavicius' silent film asks for physical and legal custody of their two young children.

Penelope Ann Miller is dealing with a marriage breakdown. The actress, who recently enjoyed success with silent film "", ended her marriage to husband James Huggins after nearly 12 years of marriage by filing for legal separation in the Los Angeles County Superior Court sometime last week.

According to court documents obtained by E! News, Miller cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. While she is asking to have sole legal and physical custody of their two children, the 48-year-old wants Huggins to have his visitation rights. She additionally requests for termination of spousal support to Huggins.

Miller tied the knot with Huggins in May 2000. The now-estranged couple welcomed their first child, Eloisa May, in December the same year. They had their second child, Maria Adele, in March 2009. Huggins is the "Carlito's Way" actress' second husband. She got married to in 1994, but filed for divorce in January 1995.
