The couple, who have been together since 1982, have two children, Hannah and Samuel, together.
"They both are pursuing independent lives," says a source.
Lange, 62, who stars as Constance in FX's hit series, American Horror Story, was just nominated for a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award. She will be seen next in The Vow, costarring Rachel McAdams, in February.
A rep for Lange confirms the split – but has no additional comment. Shepard's rep could not be reached.
