Sometimes, it seems like there a fountain of youth that only Hollywood's elite have access to, doesn't it? Shockingly, Susan Sarandon shares our sympathies -- even though she is looking absolutely fabulous at 65 years old!
"It's true there aren't that many good parts," says Sarandon to People. "I've had my disappointments. It's hard to be in this business and not be an alcoholic or a drug addict or bitter as an older woman."
However, it's part of the job description, she argues. "That's one of the things you have to make your peace with -- or get out of the business because everyone has those moments. I'm not the only one."
Sarandon reveals that the secret to staying young is staying sensual, a privilege she was told was revoked from her before she hit 40 years old. "I was told by John Cassavetes when I did The Tempest never to be a mom because I would not be sensual anymore," says the actress. "I think I laughed."
In fact, she proudly displays her sensual side in her latest movie Jeff Who Lives at Home, co-starring Ed Helms and Jason Segel. "It's really more of an attitude than it is being naked," she says. "I'm happy to be considered desirable. I love it!"
Besides, she says, "I think there's a lot of guys who like strong women. Maybe because women have raised sons who have different expectations. I think we can take some credit for that!"
