Believe it or not, one of the most successful actresses in the world has her moments of insecurity too — just like we do!
After her shocking breakup from longtime partner Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon seemed like she had turned over a new, youthful leaf by dating a guy half her age and partying with her 25-year-old daughter. But shockingly, the 63-year-old Oscar winner admits she’s definitely not as happy as she seems.
“I don’t feel that confident right now,” Susan confided to reporters April 16 while promoting her April 23 appearance on NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?
“I have my bad times. It’s an odd time…and [I have a] new kind of perspective right now. My curiosity outweighs my ego for the most part, and it moves me forward.”
We could barely believe our ears! Susan Sarandon has crappy days? It’s rare that any actresses are so honest about their emotional states — usually we only hear about their physical insecurities.
Susan has reason to be in emotional turmoil: she’s completely changed her life around this year. First, she split from her partner of 22 years (and father of her two sons) Tim Robbins last summer. Then she began dating her Spin NYC business partner, 31 year-old Jonathan Bricklin. Finally, we even caught her partying until the wee hours of the morning with daughter Eva Amurri, 25. Although she seemed to have discovered the happy fountain of youth, that couldn’t be further from the truth.
“I’m feeling a little bit sorry for myself right now, honestly,” the actress admitted, adding that she twisted her ankle during a recent trip to Haiti and can’t help feeling down in the dumps.
Susan, you have every reason to feel confident. You’re a beautiful, intelligent Academy Award-winning actress with a family who loves you. Try not to wallow in self-pity – and remember how good you’ve got it – and how great you really are!
