(Newser) – Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter famously lived in separate houses during their relationship, so now that said relationship is ending, at least they won't have to face the prospect of sorting through all their stuff. After 13 years together, the unmarried director and actress "separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children," 11-year-old Billy and 7-year-old Nell, Carter's rep tells People. Burton, 56, and Carter, 48, have worked together on various movies including Planet of the Apes, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, and Dark Shadows. (Another celebrity couple's divorce was just finalized.)
