Lauren noted that there were positives and negatives to starting a relationship at age 40.
She said she avoided asking deep questions about Peter’s visions and values.
That avoidance eventually caught up with them, causing them to break up.
She rented a beach home and moved back to Los Angeles to concentrate on work.
The actress admitted that time had played a role in healing her broken heart.
Peter and Lauren broke up quietly last year.
The pair had first met on the set of a show where Lauren was a recurring face in 1995.
They began dating in 2010 when they acted as brother and sister on “Parenthood.”
Things began changing during the pandemic when they could not see each other as often as they used to.
