Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins call it quits after 23 years

December 23, 2009 |  2:27 pm

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.”
