Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton Have Split

Famed movie director Tim Burton and actress Helena Bonham Carter have split after more than a decade together, ABC News has confirmed.

The two began dating in the early 2000s and are parents to their son Billy Raymond, 11, and daughter Nell, 7.

"Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children," Carter's rep told ABC News via a statement. "We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.“

The "Fight Club" actress, 48, first met the "Batman" director, 56, when the two worked together on 2001 film "Planet of the Apes," starring Mark Wahlberg.

Carter has been a regular muse for Burton, starring in some of his latest hits like "Sweeney Todd" and "Dark Shadows."
