Naomi Foner – the mother of Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal – has filed for divorce from their father, Stephen Gyllenhaal, Los Angeles court papers show.

Married for 30 years, Foner – a Golden-Globe winning screenwriter with credits including Running on Empty and Losing Isaiah – cites irreconcilable differences. She says the couple has been separated since Jan. 1.

Foner isn’t seeking spousal support, and she also asks the court to deny Gyllenhaal – a film director – any support.

The papers were filed Wednesday.
