Los Angeles - Longtime partners Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have separated.

Though Carter and Burton never married, they became creative and romantic partners after he directed her in 2001's Planet of the Apes. Their other credits together include Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.

Burton's latest film is Big Eyes, which earned Golden Globe nominations for stars Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz and its original song by Lana del Rey. Carter's recent films include Les Miserables and The Lone Ranger.
