Actress Susan Sarandon updates her Instagram with photos of her injured face after suffering concussion from an accidental fall.

The "Ace the Case" actress shared two pictures of her face, one with a swell above her right eye and the other with a black eye and dark circles around the same eye.
The actress did not reveal where or how the accident happened, but the effects of the fall suggest that it was not so "little." Sarandon wrote in her caption:
"A little slip = concussion, fractured nose, banged-up knee."

The actress and ardent supporter of Senator Bernie Sanders explained to her fans that she would be unable to meet with them as earlier scheduled, for the Senators presidential campaign in New Hampshire.
"So, looks like I won't be able to meet the folks in New Hampshire with Senator Sanders tomorrow. I'm [really]sorry I'll miss that opportunity."
The actress who doubles as an activist didn't let the 'slip' stop her as she wrote out in her caption the speech she was planning to give for the would-be Democratic presidential nominee, with the recurring line: "This is an Emergency." Sarandon highlighted the ills of society, labelling them as emergencies.

"This is not the time for a "pathway" to or "framework."
The actress is known for her active support of progressive causes. This flair for progressive activism led her to be appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and as one of the eight women selected to hold the Olympic flag in the opening ceremony of the winter games in 2006.
A day before her fall, the actress posted a throwback photo on her Instagram page. The picture was taken a decade ago with fellow actresses Saoirse Ronan and Rose McIver.
The actress was on set of Peter Jackson's adaptation of Alice Sebold's bestselling 2002 novel, "The Lovely Bones". Sarandon portrayed the role of Saoirse and Rose's grandmother.
The seasoned actress kicked off a career in acting in 1970 with the movie 'Joe,' where she portrayed Melissa Compton. She has since made appearances in movies, Television series, documentaries, music videos, and games.
