Actor Tony Lo Bianco is single at the age of 72 after parting from his wife.
The star, famed for his role in the 1971 crime film The French Connection, has split with his wife of six years Elizabeth after she recently filed for divorce.
But Lo Bianco tells the New York Post the break-up was "very amicable", insisting his former spouse remains close to his children and grandchildren.
He adds: "She is a brilliant woman - a really terrific lady."
