Talk about keeping something hush hush: Actress Jessica Lange and her partner, actor Sam Shepard, are separated. And it turns out they split up almost two years ago, Lange's rep confirms for CNN.
According to People magazine, the couple started their romance back in 1982 and had two kids along the way. An unnamed source tells the magazine that Lange and Shepard are both "pursuing independent lives."
Shepard looks to have a number of projects lined up, including a role in Denzel Washington's February release, "Safe House," which also stars Ryan Reynolds.
Lange, meanwhile, is up for a best supporting actress Golden Globe for her work in FX's new hit "American Horror Story," and will appear alongside Rachel McAdams in 2012's "The Vow" - which coincidentally opens the same day as "Safe House," on February 10.
