Susan Sarandon Tells All About Split From Tim Robbins

Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins

During a recent interview, the 64-year-old actress says that she is sadder about the break-up than her shocked fans, claiming she and Tim were simply finished with each other.

Susan Sarandon has spoken up about her split from Tim Robbins during a recent interview with UK's Telegraph newspaper. Susan admitted that she was baffled by her fans' reactions over the split as she and Tim were dubbed one of Hollywood's most enduring couples.

On the public reactions, Susan shared, "People were coming up to me in the street and saying 'I cried and cried when I heard.' Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either." She further revealed that her 23-year relationship with Tim ran its course, saying "You bring people into your life at certain times. Maybe you have a relationship to have children and you realize that it's fulfilled after that point."

64-year-old Susan added that she and Tim, who is 12 years her junior, never thought about making their union official. The "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps" actress told the mag, "I've always liked the idea of choosing to be with somebody. I thought that if you didn't get married you wouldn't take each other for granted as easily. I don't know if after twenty-something years that was still true."

Since the split, Susan has been linked to her 31-year-old ping-pong club business partner Jonathan Bricklin. On this, she simply commented, "You have to have a sense of humor. There are lots of people in my life at the moment." In her old age, she realized that in a relationship, "you have to stay curious and hungry and foolish." Otherwise, "you get satisfied and you get stuck."

Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, who co-starred in 1988 movie "Bull Durham", had been together since 1986 before they ended their romance in 2009. Together, they have two sons, Jack Henry and Miles Guthrie. Susan also has a daughter named Eva Amurri from her previous marriage to Chris Sarandon, whom she claimed the first person she had sex with.

    FYI: Eva Amurri's father is not Chris Sarandon. As her name would imply, it is Franco Amurri.

    Maybe it's more like we are here to learn to know and respect God which lives in us all. We are all quite interesting. How could we ever be considered interesting to any God if we find our own selves less than so? It's strange that none of the comments are actually about Ms. Sarandon and Mr. Robbins so much as her public. And, the article is mistaken in that Eva Amurri is her daughter with the Director Franko Amurri. I think that reaction of strangers is a hoot. Narcissistic, indeed. I see they are considering downgrading from disorders. "The American Psychiatric Association recently announced it's considering lifting narcissistic personality disorder along with four other personality disorders from its highly influential Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders."

    What is more narcissistic - Seeking to know yourself through experiences and relationships with your fellow man or believing that we are so important that there is a supreme being who manipulates our lives in a direct, personal manner? You are right 'Boots. Your collective is really not interesting at all.

    If you don't know yourself by 30, you never will. Narcissism is REALLY not attractive. We are here to know God, not ourselves. We really aren't all that interesting.

    Yes, there comes a time when that's just how it is. Each relationship takes us one step closer to knowing choose between who or what helps us, against who or what prevents us.
