Susan Sarandon talks about her latest film (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) and her latest hobby (ping-pong) with the Telegraph, but—more interestingly—she also opens up about her split from Tim Robbins after 23 years together. "People were coming up to me in the street and saying, 'I cried and cried when I heard,'" she says. "Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either."
She says they never married because "I thought that if you didn't get married you wouldn't take each other for granted as easily," but adds, "I don't know if after twentysomething years that was still true." She implies the romance ran its course ("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."), and laughs off rumors of an affair with her ping-pong business partner, 31-year-old Jonathan Bricklin: "You have to have a sense of humor. There are lots of people in my life at the moment." For more on the Bricklin rumors, click here.
