Sam Shepard, Jessica Lange are over

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.

    Oh no...I am really sorry to hear about these two. I really admired how they kep their priavte affairs business out of the street. How they moved to MN to raise their family and still kept up their acting careers. Really sorry to hear!

    Old people are just so gross. They wear diapers and smell bad. Sometimes they pooop their pants. Plus they walk too slow. They walk like they did number 2 in their britches.

      Oh, I'm sorry, plungie bungie, did you just rewrite the laws of nature and decide you will be young forever. You will be old and gross and slow and a bunch of young jerks will be making your life miserable. Bet on it, you dumb kid.

      Yeah, young people are SO cool; self-obsession is SO appealing. If only old people could walk around in a daze, staring at their iPhones and tweeting about what happened on "Jersey Shore" last night. Old people would be way cooler if they could stay up all night, doing shots with their buds, then sleeping it off in a coma the next day, waking to give their parents a call for more party-cash. Yeah. I wish I was that young guy again. Trust me, plungie, there are lots of advantages to not being a kid anymore...patience, maturity, better in bed, and just more interesting to other people. You'l see...

      to Guitar Harry –

      after your comments to the idiot, Plungie, I have nothing more to add....

      You've said it all ! Thank you for your intelligent feedback.

      Don't forget everyone (that works and gets a paycheck)!!! Obama out !!.. so you can keep more of your
      own money instead of it going to welfare (as that is what happens in socialism, which is where Obama wants
      to take this county)....

    They are too old to be breaking up. They need to stay together for the kids. Plus the are both 90 kazillion years old. They need to be in the nursing home with all the other smelly old people.

      And you need to have a lobotomy...

      You are never too old to break up. You pursue your life independently if the relationship is strained or no longer worthwhile. Their children are likely grown and will have no problem visiting them in different surroundings. Never stay together for anyone's sake. It does not work. These are not the days when women were helpless without a man.....follow your bliss people. Your children will be stronger for it.
