2016 CAA Upfronts Celebration Party

Lauren Graham says her relationship with longtime partner Peter Krause crumbled due to fundamental differences.

The “Gilmore Girls” actress — who began dating Krause while starring together on “Parenthood” in 2010 — revealed the pair might not have known each other as well as they thought they did after 11 years.

“I think part of all the positives of having known each other for a really long time were there,” Graham told People. “And one of the negatives of that is we almost came into a relationship as people in their 40s without asking any of the questions people in their 40s should be asking.”

The 55-year-old continued, “We had such a good time together that I didn’t maybe ask some fundamental questions about ‘What are your values and what do you envision?’ and those more grown-up things. And then they just caught up with us.”

The former couple announced their split in June.

In fact, during a 2017 interview with Good Housekeeping, the actress — who was initially introduced to Krause in the ’90s — revealed that when they started dating most of their conversations centered around common interests rather than their individual beliefs.

“We couldn’t stop talking. Not about ourselves, but about the world and books and family,” the producer told the outlet, adding that their life was “simple.”

However, in June the former couple announced that they “quietly ended their relationship last year,” and Graham says becoming single in her 50s made her stronger.

“I knew I was resilient because I just always have been,” the actress told the outlet. “You take your knocks and don’t complain. That’s how I was always raised.”

The two met in 1995 and started dating in 2010.

In the midst of her heartbreak, Graham leaned into her work and starting writing her new memoir, “Have I Told You This Already? Stories I Don’t Want to Forget to Remember,” which is available Nov. 15.

“Somewhere in that is a year like this where I just was not going to let [the breakup] flatten me,” she added. “I was like, ‘OK, well, look at all the good stuff I have, and look at all the good times,’ and ‘I’m going to write this book.’ Thank goodness I have these outlets and these stories to tell.”

The actress is in a “better place” since they split one year ago.

Although the former couple never married or had children, Graham helped Krause, 57, raise his 20-year-old son Roman — which she says has been one of the hardest parts about their decades-long friendship turned romance coming to an end.

“Any pain still really has its moments. I was a contributor in the life of his child, and so we’re connected. And yes, I’m in a better place, but it’s still just a shame. It’s just sad to me.”
