Joshua Jackson quizzed on failed romances during first appearance

Fans were left stunned when Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger called time on their relationship earlier this summer.

Despite the fact Diane appeared incredibly reluctant to tie the knot after ten years, theirs seemed like one of the most steadfast unions in Hollywood.

But it wasn't meant to be.

And while Diane has had to fend off speculation she had been having an affair with Norman Reedus, Joshua has kept a low profile… until now.

Appearing at Television Critics Association press tour yesterday in order to present the third season of his Showtime drama The Affair,  Joshua was forced to field questions regarding fidelity and relationships failures.

And, unlike many of us who would fall apart having to address such topics in the aftermath of a break-up, the former Dawson's Creek star did himself proud.

When asked by a reporter what makes a relationship fall apart, 38-year-old Joshua responded: "I don’t know, truthfully."

Referring to characters in the show, Joshua continued: "I think each one of the situations is individual. The relationship between The Affair’s Helen and Noah presented its own issues."

Undoubtedly feeling the pressure given the timing of the press junket, Joshua finished by saying: "The relationship between Cole and Alison presented its own issues, and I’m not sure that there is an answer."

Props Joshua, props.
