, the self-described "amicable" divorce from his wife of 22 years, Kathleen Glynn, was finalized Tuesday after the former husband and wife settled on how they would split their many assets.

Moore has become famous for his documentary films including "Bowling for Columbine," "Fahrenheit 9/11," "Sicko," and "Capitalism: A Love Story," as well as his attendance and speeches in New York at the Occupy Wall Street rally.
