Linda Kozlowski and Paul Hogan, who reportedly fell in love while filming the 1986 hit movie "Crocodile Dundee," are divorcing after 23 years of marriage.

Officially Linda Hogan since her marriage, Kozlowski, 54, is petitioning to have her maiden name restored, spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of the couple's son Chance, 15, according to court documents TMZ obtained.

The Daily Mail reported in January that it looked like the two were still very much a couple at the G'Day USA LA Black Tie Gala. 

"With their son Chance in tow, the pair proved that they have just as much chemistry as they had in the much-loved Aussie action flick as they cozied up on the red carpet, although the 19-year age gap seemed to be catching up to them," the publication reported. "The Australian comedian, 73, might look a lot older than he did in the iconic films but he proved that he's still as spiritley as ever as he joked around with his family in front of the cameras."

At the event, Hogan was given the Australian Icon Award by and Australian Hugh Jackman.

"I grew up watching Hoges, he was the everyman," Jackson said of Hogan at the event. "He's funny, honest, smart, ethical and an icon, for me a mentor."

TMZ.com reported that the couple separated last month and Hogan sold the couple's mansion to Chris Hemsworth, an Australian who stars in "Thor: The Dark World."

Hogan, an actor and comedian in Australia, married his first wife Noelene Edwards in 1958 and divorced her in 1981. The couple remarried a year later, only to divorce a second time in 1986 amid allegations that Hogan had started an affair with Kozlowski.

The original "Crocodile Dundee" movie spun off two sequels, "Crocodile Dundee II" in 1988 and "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles" in 2001. The first "Crocodile Dundee" earned Hogan a 1987 Oscar nomination for best screenplay with Ken Shadie and John Cornell.
