Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins call it quits after 23 years

Bones3 Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, the lovebirds-turned-Hollywood power couple who met while filming 1988's "Bull Durham," separated over the summer after 23 years together and have called it quits.  Today it was made official.

Publicist Teal Cannady confirmed the split and said no further comments are forthcoming.

Sarandon, 63, and Robbins, 51, have two sons together -- Jack, 20, and Miles, 17. Sarandon has a daughter, actress Eva Amurri, from a previous relationship.

Though they were together for more than two decades ... 

... the couple never married, attracting attention for that, for the difference in their ages and for their liberal political activism. As a couple, they supported John Edwards' presidential candidacy but then shifted support to Barack Obama -- though you probably won't find Susan playing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton any time soon.

Sarandon stars in “The Lovely Bones,” opening worldwide next month (check out pics from the premiere here). Robbins, artistic director of the Actor's Gang theater group, last appeared in 2008’s “City of Ember.”

Who cares about these elitist who don't have a clue about the common person.

Well it'll be interesting to see how long it takes Tim Robbins to turn up with a new woman 1/2 Susan Sarandon's age (or half his own!). The official line may be "no comment," but my money's on the usual acting out of the usual male midlife crisis.

Just another pair of Holly-Pols telling us how to live our lives, but doing exactly the opposite. I can see them now driving off into the sunset in their Prius'.

Been married 30 years, done acid, went to Woodstock, but unlike this pair of Holly-Pol retards know what works and what doesn't. Pelosi, Reed, Obama don't work, Dem health care 'reform' (what a joke calling this reform) doesn't work, demonizing people because they're successful doesn't work, double taxation in the form of death taxes doesn't work.

Born - raised in NYC, now live in TX and own a gun. I dare you Holly-Pols to try and come take my money or my gun away from me.

Hey all, it's Christie D'Zurilla from the Ministry -- just a reminder that we have a zero-tolerance policy on profanity.

Big cuss words, little cuss words, no can do. Can't publish it, can't link to it, can't include abbreviations that are short for it -- we won't even let you use aster*sks to block out letters. You might ask WTHeck, but it won't help. We're really that cranky about it.

So if you don't see your comment published here, that's probably why.

Thanks for commenting!


Bummer. I'm sad for them both....

Sarandon and Robbins both support convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal and are therefore big losers.

I could care less what these two activists do.

They should have been shown the door years ago.

There has to be a country that wants them....somewhere.

Why so many redneck right wing nutjobs on this website? Didn't know they could read . . .

Do you support cop killer Mumia too? Then you are a loser as well. Right or left wing no matter.

Well, you can cry me a river. I am so surprised!! The two top communists of the Hollywood set are splitting the sheets. They probably feel they can be more supportive of the poor and downtrodden by taking separate paths. I just know they will be going to some out of the way African dictatorship to hand out Marxist pamphlets to the starving. We all know how they hate poverty. Susan and Tim. My My!! ---or is it Tim and Susan. They will surely take lots of canned goods with them on their separate trips. How else would they feed the hoards of common folks. ---or maybe they will get jobs as university professors, and write their little hearts out about all the madness and mayhem in the world. It is so sad to see these two vomit bag politicos with their swell political philosophies not be able to stay married. They truly deserve each other. So Sad--boo hoo hoo

Pardon me for my error. I forgot they were never married. They just played house for twenty-three years.

my god, what a bunch of vicious individuals to take such
pleasure in other peoples misfortunes......

Truly sad ... M:)

To VSN, AA, Specular, Greg, Jerry.. what a bunch of haters. Since someone views something different than your own, you wish them ill. Well folks just goes to show you that there is a lot of unamerican activity on here. That's not the christian or the amrican spirit. Susan and Tim have done a lot to advance education which I am sure the aforementioned posters have lacked for years. They have spent a lot of time trying to right social injustices as well. I also noticed that those haters turned something as a simple separation annoucement into a political forum for them to advance their own radical right wing agendas. Their anger and venom in their posts just goes to show how rational thought goes out the window. I bet not one of these people actually get out in their community and do something for someone else.

Tokie, Michele, Michael and the rest of the loony left. What part of SUPPORTS COP KILLER MUMIA ABU JAMAL do you not comprehend? None of their good deeds matter due to their support of this dirtbag. It is apparent that since you don't have a problem with their support of Mumia, you also don't have a problem with someone killing a cop. Nothing radical about my message. Just common sense. I like to see murderers face justice-not support. It is a relief that you are a very small minority of people in this country who think with their hearts, not with their heads.
