Susan Sarandon's Breasts Are Overrated?
That's what Sarandon says, in a delightful profile in the Guardian UK. (I disagree, as an impartial observer.) Sarandon also says she's not too interested in "chronology" but maybe her lover Louis Malle had an affair with Candice Bergen before they broke up. Asked if she would have an affair, Sarandon says, "I get offers." She says Kevin Costner had to fight for both her and Tim Robbins for Bull Durham -- first choices like Meryl Streep didn't make the cut because Costner insisted the three-way chemistry meant everyone had to audition. And then there's her childhood, where Sarandon grew up one of nine kids in a world where all the neighbors had at least 7 kids and sometimes 20. "My mum would have had more babies, but some of them died, some were miscarriages." Women were trotting kids out, she says, "like one of those Mimeograph machines."
