Split: Jessica Lange, 62, and Sam Shepard, 68, after more than a quarter-century and two children, reports People. The actress and the playwright-actor first connected in 1982 and spent many of their early years together on a farm near Charlottesville. The never-married duo actually parted almost two years ago, it seems, but apparently no one got around to asking until now.
