Richard also told E News: “It’s not a break up, it’s a shift in the direction of our lives,” he said. “I hate to say the romantic relationship is over. We’re definitely extremely good friends. We do things together. We care about each other a great deal and as far as romantic relationships, that’s temporarily been put on the back burner because she, as you probably know, has rededicated herself to activism. We definitely have a great deal of love for each other.”

“I would say that there’s always a possibility that her life will change. At the moment we’ve been leading two separate lives, but we still find time to do dinner once a week, watch movies, stuff like that,” he added.

The Grace and Frankie star and Richard have been dating since 2009, but never tied the knot. Jane has been married three times before. First to Roger Vadim from 1965 until 1973, then to Tom Hayden from 1973 until 1990, and finally to Ted Turner from 1991 until 2001. Richard was hitched to Rebecca Broussard from 1987 until 1988.

While Jane has not yet commented on the split, she opened up at the time of their house buying to gush over how in love she was with Richard.

“At 74, I’ve never had such a fulfilling sex life,” she told The Sun in 2012. “The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man. I absolutely want to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard, I feel totally secure with him. Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago.” Here’s hoping the couple makes amends!
