Christina Applegate’s husband of four years, actor Johnathon Schaech, filed for divorce Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to a statement released by their publicist: “After four years of marriage, actors Johnathon Schaech and Christina Applegate have filed for divorce. The decision is mutual. We have no further comment at this time.”

Schaech, 36, who appeared in the movie That Thing You Do! and is in pre-production with Road House 2: Last Call, cited irreconcilable differences, say the court papers.

Applegate, 34, whose credits include Married … With Children and last year’s Anchorman, is currently on Broadway in a revival of Sweet Charity, which will run until the end of this month. Her debut in the show last spring was delayed when she sprained her ankle during out-of-town tryouts. She earned a Tony nomination for the role.

The pair, who married in Palm Springs in October 2001, have no children.
