On Thursday, actress Jane Seymour sat down with the "The View" co-hosts to talk candidly about her recent split from actor/director James Keach -- her husband of 20 years.

"Obviously, it's really devastating," the former Bond girl said. "It did happen a while ago. It was sort of kept quiet."

On Saturday, Seymour's rep confirmed to People magazine that the estranged pair had been separated for several months and were now in the process of negotiating the terms of their divorce.

But unlike many celebrity splits, the breakup of their marriage seems to be anything but acrimonious. Just one day after reports of their split began circulating, Seymour and Keach appeared together on the red carpet at her Open Hearts Foundation charity event.

On "The View," she confirmed that she and Keach remain friends.

"We open our hearts to one another. We respect one another," Seymour said. "We've been together 22 years, and we will be together the rest of our lives raising our children and doing things like the Open Hearts Foundation."

The former couple has a pair of 17-year-old twin boys together. This will be the fourth divorce for Seymour and the third for Keach.
