The Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon had an eventful life when it came to relationships, with pleasant surprises sent her way during the later years.


Susan Sarandon, who made her big-screen debut with the '70s flick "Joe," has been one of Hollywood's most enduring stars with an active career span of around five decades.

The unexpectedly protracted yet successful acting career came as a surprise, even to Susan herself, as the star told "AARP Magazine" that her life has been filled with happy accidents.



Susan was a young adult studying at the Catholic University in D.C., when she married a graduate drama student, Chris Sarandon, and was introduced to the art of acting. The actress told "The Guardian" that she never studied acting, but she actually ended up being an actress.

"I had never taken acting lessons, but just sort of fell into it"


The actress, who was in her 20's back then, moved to New York City with her then-husband and landed steady roles in titles like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in the 70s, but by 1979 she divorced Chris.


The "Thelma & Louise" star later went on to date the "Pretty Baby" director Louis Malle, who was fourteen years her senior, for a span of three years.


However, the Hollywood veteran got an unexpected pregnancy with a much younger filmmaker, Franco Amurri. Despite being told that she could not have children because of endometriosis, she gave birth to her daughter Eva at the age of 39.

A year later, the actress, who kept the last name from her first husband, got into a relationship that would last over two decades with "Bull Durham" co-star Tim Robbins.



The Oscar-nominated actress had two sons, Jack and Miles, with the veteran actor. Soon after, her belated motherhood became the primary focus of Susan's life.

Although the now 73-year-old actress never thought that they would, she separated from her long time love interest back in 2009, and as an inside source revealed to "Closer Weekly," they are now "on friendly terms."

All three of her children have followed their mother's footsteps to make careers in Hollywood with Eva and Miles picking an acting course while their brother Jack chose to be a director.

The beautiful actress, in recent days, surprised everyone with yet another revelation. The then 70-year-old star admitted to being a bisexual in a candid interview with "PrideSource."
