The Tim Robbins-Susan Sarandon Split - Er, Kinda Like the Sino-Soviet Split?

Breaking: "Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins Call it Quits After 23 Years":
Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, the lovebirds-turned-Hollywood power couple who met while filming 1988's "Bull Durham," separated over the summer after 23 years together and have called it quits. Today it was made official.

Publicist Teal Cannady confirmed the split and said no further comments are forthcoming.

Sarandon, 63, and Robbins, 51, have two sons together -- Jack, 20, and Miles, 17. Sarandon has a daughter, actress Eva Amurri, from a previous relationship.

Though they were together for more than two decades ...

... the couple never married, attracting attention for that, for the difference in their ages and for their liberal political activism. As a couple, they supported John Edwards' presidential candidacy but then shifted support to Barack Obama -- though you probably won't find Susan playing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton any time soon.
Also, "Reaction to the Tim Robbins-Susan Sarandon Split."

Kinda like
the Sino–Soviet split.

Interesting side note: Sarandon's daughter Eva Amurri starred in
the recent Rock the Vote ad calling on young people to withhold sex from opponents of Obamunism. Ms. Amurri dropped the f-bomb throughout.

That's some great Hollywood family values, eh?
