Bosworth wore a myriad of gold baubles around her neck and rocked an oversized pair of shades of orange.

Kate stayed close to her mother, Patricia, as they stopped by a few stores nearly a month after revealing the end of her marriage in a unique Instagram post.

After several paragraphs reflecting on romance, Kate wrote, “Our hearts are full, as we have never been more in love and deeply grateful for each other than with this decision to break up.”

Touching up, some fans were confused by the overly gushing tone of the marriage breakup post, with one user commenting, “This isn’t real life,” while another said, “Only in Hollyweird. ‘

The couple married in 2013. Bosworth is the stepmother of the Polish daughter from a previous marriage.

Kate’s rather poetic post began with two quotes, which she attributed to ‘Big Sur, 2011,’ the title of the film in which they met.

“Would you like to split a burger?” Yes.’

“How about a shot of whiskey?” Of course.’

Kate continued: “The beginning is often the best part of love. Fireworks, magnets, rebellion – the attraction. The beginning signals a wide-open expanse 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 all your life, even though you met him minutes ago.”

‘Inherently we fear an end. Losing what you have because you got what you wanted. Being attached to the expectation of the result. The great unknown.’

“What if we chose not to be afraid, but to love. If that most delicate and fragile last flicker to the flame became a different type of oven altogether.

“Maybe this sounds strange to some, romantic to others. For us: this is the truth.

Still

Still “in love”: After several paragraphs reflecting on romance, Kate wrote, “Our hearts are full as we have never been more in love and deeply grateful for each other than with this decision to break up.” They can be seen at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2020 above

Getting to the heart of her message, the LA-born actress wrote, “Our hearts are full as we have never been more in love and deeply grateful for each other than with this decision to break up.

“Together, Michael and I have chosen love over and over again for the past ten years. We hold our hands as tightly today as our fingers on our wedding day.

“Our eyes look deeper into each other, now with more courage. In the process of letting go, we have come to recognize that our love will never end. The connection doesn’t just disappear. Love deepens, the heart expands.

“We know the 4AM calls are coming. Numbers are exchanged to communicate only what numbers can do.

Kate added that the pair still planned to work together, writing: “We’re laughing as we plan our next movie together and are excited to share our latest collaboration.”

“We believe that the most epic love stories are those that exceed expectations. It has been our greatest honor to experience love in this way and to continue to marvel at the beauty of the evolution of love. What happens when we reach the end of something and realize… we are only at the beginning.

“This is love,” she wrote, ending, “And we’ll drink that.”

While the breakup felt harrowing to some commentators, others were struck by the unexpectedly positive tone.

“This sounds like Hollywood bulls***. When you love someone that much, you make it work,” one Instagram commentator wrote.

‘Sad… but if this relationship is so beautiful, why divorce? This is definitely a glamorous divorce. This is not real life!’ shared another.

‘Hollywood. True marriage in something you try, like a pair of shoes,” wrote another.

Others were inspired and said, ‘This is BEAUTIFUL. They are getting divorced by holy moly. I can only hope to be so positive about future tragedies in my life.

Kate and Michael, 50, were last photographed together in January this year, for his 38th birthday.

The couple met in 2011 while making the adventure drama Big Sur, in which she starred and he directed.

Bosworth and Polish announced their engagement in August 2012, and were married on August 31, 2013 at The Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg, Montana.

“I never even dated my husband-to-be,” Bosworth told InStyle UK at the time.

“He told me after a few weeks, before we were even together, ‘I’m going to marry you.’ He just knew.”

In June, the star described Polish as a former “mentor” in an interview with In style, saying that their “relationship has now more or less degenerated into a very close partnership.”

‘He is 14 years older than me; he’s been doing this much longer than me. And he really took my hand and said, “We’ve got this, you’ve got this.”‘

The Blue Crush star was previously involved with Orlando Bloom from 2005 from 2002.

Last December, it was reported that Bosworth and Polish were shopping for a “modern western” buyer series called Bring On The Dancing Horses, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But Polish found himself in hot water after allegedly assaulting a crew member while filming the project in Montana last fall, as reported by Variety.

Art director Jack Renner filed suit in March through a district court in Butte, Montana, accusing the director of assaulting him.

The Pole reportedly became ‘furious’ with Renner, attacking him and causing him to fall and hit his head. Renner was injured seriously enough that he was sent to the hospital.

Bosworth is said to have been present at the incident.

The Polish team turned the tables and accused Renner of being the aggressor.

His lawyer David Jonelis of Lavely and Singer said in a statement: ‘The nonsense lawsuit filed by Jack Renner is simply his last-ditch effort to take advantage of those who welcomed him with open arms into the production of Bring On The Dancing Horses’ . in the midst of a global pandemic – despite its tendency to engage in inappropriate and intoxicated behavior during production.

“Since his efforts to enforce a speedy settlement from Michael Polish failed miserably, he has now resorted to filing this groundless case alleging that he has been wronged in some way by his own offending. -set, attempted attack outside office hours. mr. Polish – an incident that reflected so horribly on Mr. Renner that he eventually stopped production the next day. mr. Polish looks forward to hearing Mr. To take off Racer in court once and for all.’
