Los Angeles jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer made a rare comment about her split from Tobey Maguire during an interview on World’s First Podcast.

While speaking to her close pals Erin and Sara Foster, the mom-of-two, 45, gushed about her very amicable split from the Spider-Man actor, 46, back in 2016 following nine years of marriage and two children.

'I was able to make a conscious decision about how this breakup was going to go and trust that the universe had my back, had our back as a couple for our children, for all of these things, and really, it’s been the most beautiful experience of my life having this beautiful breakup,' she reflected.

The daughter of former movie mogul Ron Meyer added: 'I would literally do anything in the world for Tobey. He is my brother. I love him to death and we have the most beautiful family.'

Meyer, who calls Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox some of her best friends, officially filed for divorce in 2020, four years after announcing they called it quits.

The former couple, who began dating in 2003, share 15-year-old daughter Ruby and son Otis, 13.

At the time they released a statement to People that read: 'After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple.

'As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship.'

Even after all this time, their divorce has yet to be completed.  

Tobey - who broke up with model Tatiana Dieteman after more than three years together back in February - has talked about wanting 'security and comfort' in his life following a rocky childhood.

His parents were teenagers when he was born and split when he was only three; he had a tumultuous upbringing as a result. His family were 'very poor' and at one point spent time in a shelter.

He explained at the time: 'Growing up the way I did, I had a very serious ambition to make some money, to have some security and comfort in my life.'

He had a drug and alcohol problem during his teenage years, but told the Guardian in 2013: 'I stopped consuming any mind-altering substances when I was 19 years old. And I've been abstinent since then.'

When asked if he drinks alcohol, he replied: 'Not at all. And I'm a vegan.'

In 2007, Maguire told David Letterman he loved his new life as husband and father. 

'It's a very dramatic change,' said the former child model and actor. My whole life is in transition now with friendships and where I'm gonna live, you know, just your whole perspective. It's great.'

Tobey is best known for his film Spider-Man, which was the biggest movie of 2003, grossing over $400 million.
