We never could have anticipated the split between Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins. Though they never officially married, the two had been together as legal partners for 23 years. That’s longer than most marriages last, let alone Hollywood ones!
Susan opened up about the decision to split from Robbins in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, and compared it to hang gliding.
“I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly in a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it’s loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now,” she explained.
Interesting comparison! As for any new men in her life, rumor has it she’s been dating a 31-year old named Jonathan Bricklin.
Susan had no comment about that, but added, “It’s a long time to not be dating and then go back into it. I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship. Whatever happens next in terms of romance and partners, I don’t know. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying. I think the point is just keep moving, and to just say yes to life.”
We’re sorry they split, but it seems like Susan is happy being single for now!
