"Actress Susan Sarandon and her partner of 23 years, actor Tim Robbins have announced that they separated over the summer," Sarandon's rep, Teal Cannaday, said in a statement to Access. "No further comments will be made."
On Tuesday, Sarandon was accompanied by her dog, Penny, as she appeared on "The View" and Penny and another, unnamed dog as she visited "The Late Show With David Letterman."
But when asked about Tim on "The View" by Joy Behar, Sarandon avoided announcing their split.
"Who gives better gifts, you or Tim?" Behar asked.
"Oh everybody gives really good gifts in our family," Sarandon replied. "I like… I used to like to make stuff all the time and I haven't been able to do that lately though."
