Sarandon on Life After Robbins

Susan Sarandon dishes about life after breaking up with Tim Robbins, her partner of 20 years. Sarandon, who is 63 and an Oscar winner, compares her new life to an experience she had filming a movie in which she “had to fly in a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it’s loud and annoying… at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating… it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.” Sarandon demurred on whether she was dating anyone (despite rumors that she is dating 31-year-old Jonathan Bricklin—a partner in her New York ping pong club), adding that she loves being called a cougar. It seems as though Sarandon is keeping a positive outlook on life, noting that the important thing “is just keep moving, and to just say yes to life.”
