KEY POINTS

  • Lisa Bonet said last month that she was "learning how to be authentically me"
  • She also spoke about a "revolution" and "feeling the squeeze" during the December 2021 interview
  • Bonet and husband Jason Momoa announced their split in a joint statement on Instagram Wednesday

Lisa Bonet hinted that changes were coming in an interview published weeks before she and her husband Jason Momoa announced that they were parting ways after 16 years together.

Bonet, 54, interviewed Marisa Tomei for Interview magazine for a Dec. 21, 2021 profile. During their chat, the "Spider-Man: Homecoming" star, 57, asked Bonet what was "calling" her.

"Definitely learning how to be authentically me, learning to be new, and following this invitation from the universe to step into this river of uncertainty," Bonet said. "We've eliminated all this extra noise, and now it's time to grow our roots deeper into our own values."

Earlier in the interview, Tomei shared that she's been meditating more frequently over the past year or so, to which Bonet replied, "​​The more still we are, the more clearly the guidance comes through in these very uncertain times."

"The revolution is definitely here and we're all feeling the squeeze," Bonet added. "If you aren't, you're in total denial, and the more you resist, the more you will suffer. Everything is crumbling out there. The personal work is understanding where empire and those archetypes live within us. The revolution is on the inside, and learning to be new in this new world."

Momoa, 42, and Bonet also mentioned a "revolution" and "feeling the squeeze" in the joint statement they issued via the "Aquaman" actor's Instagram account Wednesday to announce their split. Bonet does not have social media.

"We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring," the joint statement read. 

"We are parting ways in marriage," they wrote, adding that they decided to share the news "so that as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty."

Momoa and Bonet added that they "free each other to be who we are learning to become" but that their devotion to their children remains "unwavering," referencing daughter Lola, 14, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 13.

They began their romantic relationship in 2005 after they were introduced by a mutual friend. In 2007, the pair welcomed their first child together, Lola, and welcomed their second child, Nakoa-Wolf, in 2008. Momoa and Bonet later wed in October 2017.

Bonet also shares daughter Zoë Kravitz with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.

Momoa previously called Bonet his "dream woman."

"She's so amazing because I'm such a dip—-," he told Huffington Post in 2016. "She's an angel. She's amazing. God bless her. She's seeing this one through. I've done a lot of dumb things in my life."
