It was the third marriage for the Oscar-nominated actress, who wed the business executive and venture capitalist in Maine in 2006. Shaw, who dabbles in various tech companies and public service, also served as an executive producer of Close's gender-bending period drama "Albert Nobbs," which earned her her sixth Oscar nomination at the 2012 Academy Awards.

The "Damages" star, 68, was previously married to singer-songwriter Cabot Wade from 1969-1971, then to businessman James Marlas from 1984-1987. She was also linked to Broadway actor Len Cariou, producer John Starke, with whom she shares a daughter, and carpenter Steve Beers.

The "Albert Nobbs" star has plenty of upcoming projects to keep heartache off her mind: She'll star in the upcoming revival of the stage musical "Sunset Boulevard" in London, and will appear in several film roles in the upcoming year, including family dramedy "The Great Gilly Hopkins," sci-fi thriller "What Happened to Monday?" and horror thriller "She Who Brings Gifts."
