Laura Dern flashed a small smile as she got into her car after a meeting at the Four Seasons yesterday.
Clad completely in black (in mourning for her marriage?), Dern's expression quickly changed to more somber as soon as she got into the car:
Laura and her husband of four years, Ben Harper, separated on New Year's day, but Dern was apparently blindsided by the divorce papers that were served just last week. And to add insult to injury, Harper doesn't want to pay Laura any spousal support.
The couple has two children, Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.
