Unfortunately it’s true: One of Hollywood’s most famous domestic partnerships is officially over. A-list stars Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins have separated, according to a statement from the actress’ representative. Click on the photo below to read the full article from People magazine.
The couple – who were together for over 20 years – never officially married, though they did have two sons together. Miss Sarandon also has a daughter, actress Eva Amurri, from a previous marriage to Italian director Franco Amurri.
Although we don’t like reporting on celebrity separations – especially during the holiday season – one positive side to the story is that they have been apart since the summer, so this news comes as no surprise to those closest to them.
Thinking back on some of their many memorable roles, plenty of costume ideas come to mind. After all, Susan was a vampire in The Hunger, a witch in The Witches of Eastwick, and a nun in Dead Man Walking. Tim’s roles through the years included a wild baseball pitcher in Bull Durham (where he met Susan in 1988), a prisoner in The Shawshank Redemption and an astronaut in Mission to Mars.
So the next time you dress in one of these disguises, remember their high-profile relationship – one that many thought would always remain intact. Alas, while all good things must come to an end…great costumes can live on when you give them to friends and family!
