After a nasty fall, Susan Sarandon's eye is left black and blue. She admits to being grateful that she has healthcare to cover the costs of the injury.


After bruising her eye from a nasty fall a few days ago, Susan Sarandon gives her fans an update on her condition and shares another close-up picture of her injury. In her caption, she explains:

"I'm lucky. I have Medicare to cover my visit to ER. Everyone deserves the same, not access, not pathway to, not option. M4A saves $. Nobody loses their home because of cancer, no rationing insulin. You know, like the rest of the free world. #bernie2020."


She first revealed her injury on Friday, and told her followers that as a result of "a little slip," she suffered various injuries, which included; a fractured nose, concussion and, banged up knee.

With side-by-side pictures of her injury, Sarandon shows the large bump and bruising on her eye that resulted from the "slip."


Former co-star in the 1984 movie, "The Witches of Eastwick," Michelle Pfeifer expresses her shock to the state of Sarandon's black and blue eye, and sends her well wishes.

The movie is based on John Updike's novel with the same title. It had an impressive cast, which also include Cher and Jack Nicholson.

In her post, she goes on to regretfully say that because of her health condition, she had been forced to cancel a scheduled appearance with presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire.

It is reported, Sarandon has been a proud supporter of Sanders for a long time. In 2016, she played a pivotal role in lending her voice to speak on his behalf after the silencing of the Vermont senator's supporters.


Sarandon has always been an involved political activist. On May 14, 2000 she joined fellow celebrities, Rosie O'Donnell, and Courtney Love in taking to the streets for the "Million Mom March."

The star, along with her representatives, have not disclosed the exact details surrounding her fall. Nor has it been mentioned about when she will be able to resume her scheduled appearances.
