Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton Separate
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have split. The pair have been together for 13-years.
The pair “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children,” Carter’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”
The couple first met when Burton, 56, directed Carter, 48, in the 2001 film, Planet of the Apes.
Carter and Burton have two children together– son Billy, 11, and daughter Nell, 7.
