Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish have called it quits after nearly eight years of marriage.

The “Blue Crush” star, 38, announced her split from the 50-year-old director with a loving post on Instagram Thursday that featured a black-and-white photo of the former couple kissing.

The post started with a quote from the film “Big Sur” — where the couple met in 2011 when Polish was directing the movie and Bosworth was acting in it — before the actress delved into her thoughts on love and separation.

“The beginning is often the best part of love,” Bosworth wrote in a lengthy caption. “Fireworks, magnets, rebellion — the attraction. The onset signals a wide open expanse of possibility.”

The “Straw Dogs” star then continued with a seemingly poetic soliloquy about how their love has transformed over time.

“What if we chose not to fear but instead, to love,” she wrote. “If that most delicate and vulnerable last flicker to the flame became another type of furnace entirely.”

Bosworth shared that their “hearts are full” as they have “never been so enamored and deeply grateful for one another as we do in this decision to separate.”

She said that she and Polish have chosen to love each other since their wedding day — Aug. 31, 2013 — and that “in the process of letting go, we have come to acknowledge that our love will never end.”

“The connection does not simply disappear,” Bosworth said. “The love deepens, the heart expands.”

The actress then revealed that she and Polish will be in touch as they actually have another project in the works.

Bosworth concluded the soul-baring post by sharing that their relationship has been the couple’s “greatest honor.”

“What happens when we reach the end of something and realize … we are just at the beginning,” she said. “This is love. And we will drink that down.”

The lengthy post appeared to be a joint statement as it was signed “Kate + Michael.”

Meanwhile, famous pals of Bosworth chimed in the comment as to how the friendly exes are handling their breakup.

Elizabeth Chambers, who recently had her own very public split from disgraced actor Armie Hammer, commented, “Sending you both so much love and strength ❤️.”

Rita Wilson wrote, “Beautifully written. Wish you both luck moving forward.”

It is unclear when Bosworth and Polish officially called it quits.

They were last pictured together on Bosworth’s Instagram in February in a post captioned, “My ride or die. TGIF and that you love all my crazy …”

There have been rumblings on the blind-items account @deuxmoi and in Arkansas local news outlets that Bosworth has reportedly been hanging out with actor Justin Long in Fayeteville.

However, the “21” actress shared in May alongside a playful series of photos that she and Long, 43, had “just wrapped” a project together.

“Holy moly @justinlong you are a truly spectacular / fun / funny / kind / rare / thoughtful / totally. fckn. rad human being,” Bosworth raved about her co-star in the post. “THANK YOU for lifting us up… you kept it light & full of laughter daily, even through the toughest moments. You gnome how much I love ya 💛.”

Reps for Bosworth and Long did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
