LOS ANGELES -- After more than two decades together, one of Hollywood's most enduring relationships is over. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have broken up.
The two actors separated over the summer after 23 years together, according to publicist Teal Cannady.
Sarandon, 63, and Robbins, 51, met while shooting the 1988 film "Bull Durham." They have two sons together, Jack 20 and Miles, 17.
Sarandon and Robbins were admired for overcoming the pressues of show business and their much-discussed age difference. Robbins is 12 years younger than Sarandon. The two were committed to eachother, but never married.
"I won't marry because I am too afraid of taking him for granted or him taking me for granted -- maybe it will be a good excuse for a party when I am 80," Sarandon has said in the past.
Sarandon was previously married to Chris Sarandon, whom she met in college. The actress also dated director Franco Amurri in the mid '80s. The two had a daughter, Eva Amurri, in 1985. Amurri is also an actress. She most recently appeared in Showtime's "Californication."
Both are Academy Award winners. Sarandon won an Oscar for 1995's "Dead man Walking" and Robbins for "Mystic River" in 2003.
Sarandon stars in "The Lovely Bones," opening worldwide next month. Robbins last appeared in 2008's " City of Ember."
