Susan Sarandon has split from her long-term boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin, according to a new report. While the actress is used to starring in front of the camera, Susan is said to have struggled with being a part of her boyfriend's reality TV show.

The pair feature on Morgan Spurlock's new AOL series Connected, which follows the lives of six New Yorkers and their partners over a period of six months.

The couples are given their own camcorders, with the first episode airing at the end of March.

Susan Sarandon has previously told HELLO! that the 31-year-old age gap with Jonathan Bricklin doesn't bother her

"It caused a lot of strain in the relationship," a source told Page Six. "It's documented for the show that Susan breaks up with him because she doesn't want to be involved with the show. She says, 'You're a cast member, I'm not.'"

While a press release for the show lists Susan as Jonathan's girlfriend, it is not yet clear whether the pair will get back together. "As of now, they're working on things," the source added.

Susan, 68, first met her 37-year-old entrepreneur boyfriend when she was on a road trip to Chile in early 2010. The Thelma & Louise star has previously opened up about her relationship, and how the 31-year-old age gap doesn't bother her.

"It's the soul of a person that interests me," Susan told HELLO! magazine last October. "When you are in love, the question of age, sex, colour no longer holds any importance."

The timeless beauty also revealed that she and Jonathan, who is the co-founder of ping-pong and entertainment venue SPiN, have not moved in together. "We don't live under the same roof," she said. "We're not an ordinary couple."

Susan, who has three children from two previous relationships, married her fellow college student Chris Sarandon in 1967. They divorced 12 years later but Susan kept her ex-husband's surname as her stage name.

Susan's other long-term relationship before Jonathan was with actor Tim Robbins, her partner of 23 years.
