They appeared to be in it for the long haul.

Alas, Jessica Lange and Sam Shepard confirmed media speculation today that they have ended their relationship -- separating not recently, but almost two years ago, according to a report by People. The Oscar-winning actress, who recently earned a Golden Globe nod for her role in "American Horror Story," and veteran playwright had been together for nearly three decades, since 1982.

"They are both pursuing independent lives," a source tells the magazine.

Lange and Shepard have two children together, Hannah and Samuel.
