Calming The Nerves
Susan Sarandon is considered one of the best actresses in Hollywood. But even those on the A-list still get nervous when accepting awards.
Susan Sarandon is the face of beauty and grace in Hollywood. But it looks like she could use a little help to get her through some of the most important moments. The actress told Andy Cohen Wednesday night about the herbal courage that helps get her through most, but not all, award shows she's been to.
"Name one major Hollywood event that you showed up to stoned," Cohen said.
"Only one?" Sarandon replied, laughing. "I would say almost all except the Oscars."
Sarandon has been in some pretty important films, and has been nominated for almost every major award there is, including an Emmy, Golden Globe and BAFTA. She won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Dead Man Walking in 1996, but it looks like she was sober for that one.
Cohen then asked the 67-year-old a new question: Who is someone we'd be surprised that she had hooked up with in the past?
"My book is gonna be all the people I could've and didn't," she said, turning the question around.
The actress was with Tim Robbins for 23 years until the two split in 2009. She's most recently been with a much younger man — Jonathan Bricklin is more than 30 years her junior.
Sarandon added that even though Playboy asked her to post multiple times, she has no professional regrets. She admitted though that she did call them up once when she was pregnant, but they said no then.
The actress is working on developing a TV show with her daughter, Eva Amurri Martino. Growing Ivy will be based around Martino's character and her mom, played by Sarandon. She'll also be starring in Melissa McCarthy's new movie, Tammy. Co-written and -directed by McCarthy, the film also stars McCarthy as well as Allison Janney, Dan Aykroyd and others.
