Kate’s rather poetic message began with two quotes, which she attributed to “Big Sur, 2011”, the title of the movie where they met.
‘”Do you want to share a burger?” Yes.’
“How about a shot of whisky?” Damn, yes.’

So much love with these two: she also raised her hands putting a tongue to her teeth
Kate continued: “The beginning is often the best part of love. Fireworks, magnets, rebellion — the attraction. The beginning signals a wide range of possibilities. Share a burger with someone when you fall in love and you can die happy knowing it’s your last meal.
‘Buy a bottle of whiskey and share shots, pour me a waterfall. Play that perfect song on the jukebox and dance with someone you’ve known your whole life, even if you met them minutes ago.
“Intrinsically, we fear an end. Losing what you have because you got what you wanted. Be attached to the expectation of the result. The Great Unknown.’
‘What if we choose not to be afraid but rather to love. If that last most delicate and vulnerable flicker of flame became a whole different kind of furnace.
“Perhaps it will seem strange to some, romantic to others. For us: it is the truth.
Getting to the heart of her post, the Los Angeles-born actress wrote: “Our hearts are full as we have never been more in love and deeply grateful to each other than we are in this decision to part ways. .
