'Tremors' Star Fred Ward -- Second Marriage Shot to Hell


Fred Ward
is one of the most successful character actors in Hollywood ... unfortunately he's not so good at staying married ... his second wife just filed for divorce.

Ward's wife Marie-France Boisselle filed divorce docs in L.A. County Superior Court on August 8th citing irreconcilable differences. According to docs, the couple married in December 1995. They have no minor children together.

Ward is a pretty famous actor with about a million credits to his name: "Escape From Alcatraz", "Naked Gun 33 1/2", "Sweet Home Alabama", "United States of Tara", "2 Guns", "​Tremors​" the list goes on.

So it's not surprising ... Marie-France is asking Fred to cough up the spousal support.

We reached out to Fred, so far no word back.
