The actors Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have split up, it was revealed yesterday. Publicist Teal Cannady said in a statement that the two actors separated over the summer after 23 years together.

Sarandon, 63, and Robbins, 51, met in 1988 while shooting the film Bull Durham. Another collaboration, Dead Man Walking (1996), won Sarandon an Oscar for best actress, and Robbins a best director nomination.

The couple have two sons - Jack Henry, 20, and Miles Guthrie, 17. Susan also has a daughter, Californication star Eva Amurri, from a previous relationship.

Sarandon's most recent role was in Peter Jackson's adaptation of the bestselling novel The Lovely Bones, which enjoyed its royal premiere last month and opens nationwide in the new year. Robbins last appeared in 2008's City of Ember.
