Susan Sarandon says her sexuality is ‘up for grabs’

Actress Susan Sarandon has described her sexual orientation as “open” and “up for grabs”.

Susan was married to Chris Sarandon for 12 years before a 21-year relationship with actor Tim Robbins. She’s now open to having relationships with people of any gender, she said, but added that she is not getting many offers.

Susan told PrideSource: “I’m a serial monogamist, so I haven’t really had a large dating career.

“I married Chris Sarandon when I was 20, and that went on for quite a while – each of my relationships have. I haven’t exactly been in the midst of a lot of offers of any kind. I’m still not!

“I don’t know what’s going on! But I think back in the ’60s it just was much more open.”

Asked if she was open about her sexuality, the 70-year-old replied: “Yeah, I’m open. My sexual orientation is up for grabs, I guess you could say.”

Susan also dished that she once had an affair with gay British actor Philip Sayer, whom she starred with in 1983 film The Hunger before his death in 1989.

“I did at one point have a very successful and very loving and wonderful affair with a man who then wasn’t with another woman after me, and that worked out fine!” she told PrideSource.

“I don’t think you had to declare yourself as rigidly as you do now in terms of having to declare yourself almost politically about your sexual preference.”

Susan will soon play screen icon Bette Davis opposite Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford in new TV series “Feud: Bette and Joan” (pictured, below).


The series, by “Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy, will examine Bette and Joan’s legendary rivalry before they starred together in the gay cult classic film “Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?”
