NEW YORK (AP) — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split is a literal one at several Madame Tussauds wax museums.

A spokeswoman for the wax museum in London says they wanted to mirror Jolie and Pitt’s separation, which came to light Tuesday.

She says the wax figures “are now featured at a respectful distance from each other.”

Here is the full statement:

““Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s figures. Both figures remain in the attraction, now at a respectful distance from each other.”

Jolie’s figure has been placed near one of Nicole Kidman. Pitt’s is hanging out with the figure of his co-star in several films, Morgan Freeman.

The couple will also be split up at Madame Tussauds’ museums in the U.S.

Madame Tussauds says figures of Jolie and Pitt are on display at 15 of its 20 locations across the globe.
