Are Eric McCormack and his wife, Janet Leigh Holden McCormack, reconciling?

Despite news of a split last year, the pair attended the Elton John AIDS Foundation 2024 Oscars viewing party together and were all smiles as they posed for photos.

Eric, dressed in an elegant black tux, and Janet — who wore a silver sequined dress with long, sparkling gloves and a matching clutch — also were seen holding hands.

After 26 years of marriage, Janet filed for divorce from the Will & Grace star, 60, in November 2023, citing “irreconcilable differences," according to court documents. In the filing, she sought spousal support and requested that the court end Eric’s ability to receive spousal support.

Although she did not list a date of separation, the divorce filing was entered into the Los Angeles Superior Court a day before Thanksgiving.

The couple first connected in 1994 on the set of the CBS TV show Lonesome Dove, where Janet served as an assistant director and Eric played Col. Francis Clay Mosby.

“I was just coming out of a relationship, and not to be trusted," Eric recalled of their first meeting in a 2007 Guardian article. "I'd been dating actresses but Janet was different. She wore jeans, drove a pick-up truck.”

He revealed, “We had a secret affair the first season. I mean, dating crew! Actually, it was much worse for her, because she wasn't supposed to give any of the actors preferential treatment.”

In April 2020, the Emmy winner shared an Instagram post of the pair’s first official photo together. The shot was taken at the Lonesome Dove season 1 wrap party and dated December 1994.

“Just so happens this was our ‘coming out’ party. No one on the show knew we’d been dating for months. 🤯And *today* is my wife’s birthday!” he wrote in the caption. “Happy Birthday, @janetmccormack #gratitude.”
