A New Yorker to the very last curl of her red hair, Susan Sarandon is among the most impressive rebels of Hollywood. But what is more, she is one of the most beautiful and successful true women that we take our hats off to.
The appearance of the actress at the opening of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival provoked Vogue to exclaim, “Susan Sarandon just proved why 70 is the new 20.” Even though the pun with age has become a bit of a cliché, we completely support the idea that this woman knows how to look gorgeous. For as long as at least five decades.
Susan Sarandon has already found her place among the 12 beautiful women who know how to make time their ally. And this is not just because they know how to take good care of themselves. But because even now they are overflowing with energy. Their vivacity and passion for life as well as what they do are contagious. And they look at this most important journey of theirs quite jokingly.
What do we have in mind? It is a well-known fact that Susan Sarandon herself and Salma Hayek have delicious curves, which they banter about at one of the numerous social events that they attend. The dialogue that accompanies this picture they have on Instagram puts us in a good mood for days ahead.
But Susan Sarandon is far more than simply a beautiful woman. She is intelligent, intriguing, standing up for her position in society and actively supporting different causes, which she has been reproached for on a number of occasions.
Born in New York, the actress is a descendant of an Italian and has English, Irish, Welsh and German blood flowing in her veins. Her parents are a TV producer and an advertising director, which immediately reflects on Susan herself. Her first appearances on screen are at the beginning of the 60s and her first huge success in the cinema is in the film Joe in 1970. The married couple Susan and Chris Sarandon go to the casting for the roles in it together. He is rejected even though he is studying drama at the time, but she receives the leading role.
The actress could boast truly compelling film characters which bring about a number of prestigious awards, among which an Oscar, 52 other prizes and 73 nominations.
One of her most stunning characters is in the film Thelma and Louis from the beginning of the 90s, where she and Geena Davis are particularly impressive in the roles of two ordinary women, looking for freedom. We all know how this story ended. And how this film changed the cinema world, including Brad Pitt’s introduction to the general public.
We could go on and on with the interesting titles from the filmography of the sexy red-haired actress, but we are going to jump directly into the recent years. In 2013 Susan Sarandon proved once again that she could be equally good at both dramatic and comic characters. Her participation in the film The Big Wedding together with Diane Keaton and Robert De Niro brings yet another occasion for us to take out the tissues… and wipe our tears of laughter that these three titans provoke.
Her private life is equally interesting. As a matter of fact, Susan Sarandon has only one official marriage behind her back. But the story that attracts the attention of her fans all over the world is her long-term relationship with Tim Robbins, who is every bit as famous as she is. For 23 years they are an example of harmonious relations regardless of the difference in age. Robbins is 12 years younger than Susan. In 2009 things take a turn for the worse and they end their relationship. Together they have two sons. And Susan has a daughter from her relationship with Franco Amurri. And we are going to add a little more heat to the whole situation. A few years ago, the actress herself revealed publicly her love affair with one of the greatest musicians ever – David Bowie. According to her words, their relationship became more intimate during the work on a film project together far back in 1983.
Even well after her 70s, Susan Sarandon continues filming and at the moment several film projects are at different stages of production and they are expected to come out in 2018.
We are going to finish this the way we started it – Keep it sexy, Susan – just like the name of one of the short biographical videos about her on the internet. Because women like Susan Sarandon have magic in themselves. And with it they make the world a truly nice place to live in.
