Susan Sarandon | DIVAS WE LOVE Series

Susan Sarandon has definitely carved out her own niche within Hollywood that has kept her relevant, likable and even more importantly, in demand for decades. From her early roles in Hollywood classics like The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), Pretty Baby (1978) (also famously starring Brooke Shields in her controversial launch role), The Witches of Eastwick (1987),  Bull Durham (1988), her Academy Award winning role in Dead Man Walking, and dare we forget her transformational role in Thelma & Louise (1991) alongside Geena Davis, Susan has exuded that “X” factor that so many starlets only dream of.

Also known for her rebellious streak and non-conformist attitude, Susan stayed with longtime former boyfriend and fellow actor Tim Robbins for 23 years until the couple surprisingly split in 2009. A fruitful and blessed union, nonetheless, the couple had three children during their time together. Her philosophy on love and marriage was best captured in a quote she gave in 1978 after her breakup with then husband Chris Sarandon, “I no longer believe in marriage. I believe in love and trust and commitment, but not in marriage. Marriage may do something for lawyers and mothers, but not for husbands and wives. I deal with reality, with the feelings I have at the moment. And then I go on from there.”

Definitely nobody’s wallflower, the seasoned actress has very strong political interests and is a big beliver in inspiring change on a grassroots level. Susan recently visited Sean Penn’s, Jenkins-Penn Humanitarian Relief Organization in Port-au-Prince, Haiti in order to lend support and draw attention to the cause. An ambassador for UNICEF, Sarandon is known for fearlessly speaking her mind on numerous issues. Sarandon’s involvement with groups like Amnesty International, The Innocence Project, MoveOn.org, The Children’s Aid Society and Action Against Hunger, further exhibit her commitment to philanthropy and giving back – and trust us, this is merely skimming the surface.
