Susan Sarandon talks to EW about life after split with Tim Robbins

Susan-SarandonImage Credit: Erin Kornfeld/Elk StudiosIn the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Susan Sarandon talks about life since splitting with her partner of two decades, Tim Robbins. When asked how things have changed for the 63-year-old Oscar winner since they parted ways, Sarandon said, “I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly in a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it’s loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.”

When asked if she’s dating anyone now (Sarandon’s been linked in the gossip columns to one of the partners in her New York ping pong club, SPiN, 31-year-old Jonathan Bricklin), she shut down the line of questioning with a playful “no comment”. But, she added: “It’s a long time to not be dating and then go back into it. I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship. Whatever happens next in terms of romance and partners, I don’t know. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying. I think the point is just keep moving, and to just say yes to life.”

The actress also says she doesn’t mind being called a cougar one bit. “No, I love that!”

For more from Sarandon, who also talked about her latest film, The Greatest, and beat an EW writer at ping pong, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands now.

    Honestly, as a fellow redhead, I am hoping every day that I look as beautiful as Susan when I reach her age! I love her and she is one of maybe about 5 women that I admire.

  • johnnysam

    looks, charm and can act as well, or better than Streep! Susan is the whole package!

  • Angela

    When did 63 become the new cougar? What is a 40 year old consider? Honestly, I never liked her acting, but she does look great in that picture.

  • Strepsi

    I absolutely love her, and think she IS the whole packages, and one of the best living film actresses. But the whole split thing makes me sad, because they lasted so long… if two compassionate people like her and Robbins can’t make it work, what hope does any of us have? What happened to them, anyone know?

  • patrickNYC

    She is up there with Streep as one of our generations best actresses. You go girl.

  • Grace

    I love Susan and Tim. Great people and actors. Wish them the best in their personal lives.

  • Vincent

    I met Ms. Sarandon once when she was standing in front of me checking out items on a rack in a toy store a couple of years ago. I can tell you, that is one stunning looking woman. The screen robs her of her beauty

  • Greg

    Witches of Eastwick, Thelma & Louise… dozens of others. She is one DAMN good actress who made fun films and Oscar worthy films too!

  • blam

    too bad she hasn’t made a good movie in a long time.

  • Ann MacKenzie

    I love her – she’s wonderful! She has a great attitude. Her description of freedom is like a hang glider is right on point!

  • andie

    Definitely a great actress and she looks great no matter how that happened. I’ve always loved her and am sad about their break up but hope they are both doing okay.

  • Diana

    she is an inspiration to all us older gals who are in the same boat!
