Talk about media pros!
After 23 years together, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins — the original Ashton and Demi — broke up this summer. Their rep issued the following statement today:
“Actress Susan Sarandon and her partner of 23 years, actor Tim Robbins have announced that they separated over the summer. No further comments will be made.”
I wonder if they discussed this during their summer break-up. Like, “This sucks, but let’s wait until it’s basically Christmas Eve to announce it so it’s not a media firestorm.” That’s how you do it when you’ve been around the block a few times, I guess.
The couple have two sons together, Jack, 20, and Miles, 17.
I’m genuinely sorry to hear of their split, but, to be fair, they made it way longer than most married couples. That was an impressive run, you two! You should be proud of yourselves. The pic above is of the twosome at the 1989 Golden Globes.
