Eliza Dushku, Rick Fox Call it Quits
Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox have decided to part ways.
According to Access Hollywood, the couple has had an ongoing disagreement about their permanent residency, because they desire to live on opposite ends of the country.
Not surprisingly, the former Los Angeles Laker loves the west coast, but the Bring it On star has a deep affirmation for her home town, Boston.
The never-ending battle is reportedly the reason for their ultimate decision to break up.
During a recent interview with The Boston Globe, Dushku opened up about their differences. “Rick’s an L.A. guy and I’m a Boston girl,” Dushku explained.
The 33-year-old actress also gave a quick comparison of the notable differences between the two cities. “Nobody in LA has a basement,” she said. “They all have the obligatory storage spaces in the Valley.”
Dushku also revealed that she has plans to return to school once she’s settled back in Massachusetts. She went on to explain why she’d rather lay down roots in Boston as opposed to L.A. “I’d rather be a little physically cold here than emotionally cold in L.A.,” she said. “I missed my town and I missed my family.”
In the latest issue of the Improper Bostonian, the Wrong Turn actress expressed her desire for change. She’s reportedly embracing the new direction of her life.
“After living in Los Angeles for 15 years, I definitely grew out of being an L.A. hater, but I think there’s a level of truthfulness and individuality here that is refreshing in a business where everyone conforms to certain standards,” the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star told the publication. “I just sort of come alive when I’m home,” she explained.
On Tuesday, June 24, the 44-year-old former NBA star and actor stopped by The View where he also confirmed the split. “I’m single,” Fox said.
Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox dated for five years.
