Though we were shocked when Susan Sarandon split with long-time partner Tim Robbins, we’re not surprised to learn the sexy sixty-something has taken to singlehood pretty well, comparing the experience to hang-gliding. “And at some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.” And as for the “cougar” stigma, especially considered she’s been attached to a 31-year-old ping pong club partner? “No, I love that!”
“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.” Having once seen a man holler “yo, mama, loved you in Bull Durham!” to her on the street in Chelsea, we’re guessing life’s been giving her plenty of offers to consider these days.
