Susan Sarandon Believes She Under Surveillance By The Government

4/24/2012 9:10am EDT
Susan Sarandon
Actress and political activist Susan Sarandon is convinced U.S. government officials tapped her phones.

The Thelma & Louise star became convinced she was under surveillance after seeing a file obtained through Freedom of Information requests and fears this was the reason she was denied a security clearance for a recent visit to The White House.

Sarandon made the revelation during a question and answer session at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Sunday, telling the audience, "We're under surveillance. I've had my phone tapped. I was denied a security clearance to go to the W...

Susan Sarandon: 'I've Had Some Lipo'

Susan Sarandon
In a very unusual move for a Hollywood actress, Susan Sarandon has confessed she's had liposuction. The 65-year-old admits she recently had the invasive cosmetic surgery procedure to remove fat composites from her face. We suspect many celebrities have had plastic surgery but few admit to it.

The star told People magazine, "I've had some lipo under my chin and under my eyes."

And the actress says she would consider getting Botox injections as long as doctors don't go overboard.

She adds, "I have these two huge frown lines here (on my forehead). But if you can't move your face or you're u...

Susan Sarandon
Actress Susan Sarandon has confirmed reports suggesting she's dating her young business partner Jonathon Bricklin.

The Dead Man Walking star, who ended her 23-year relationship with Tim Robbins in 2009, fuelled rumors of a blossoming romance with her Spin table tennis club partner Bricklin in April, 2010, when the couple attended a New York film screening.

A representative for the actress later dismissed the speculation, insisting the pair's partnership was "strictly a business one" and Bricklin also laughed off suggestions he was her toy boy lover.

However, Sarandon, 65, recently ack...

Richard Gere's Rep Denies 'Pretty Woman' Put Down

Richard Gere
Richard Gere's publicist has lashed out at "false" reports suggesting the actor dismissed his most famous film Pretty Woman as "a silly romantic comedy."

The 1990 box office smash is one of the most successful rom-coms of all time, pulling in over $460 million at the box office, and Gere left fans stunned recently when he allegedly poured scorn on the movie, in which he played a successful businessman opposite Julia Roberts' hooker character, in a recent Australian interview.

According to Aussie magazine Woman's Day, Gere said of the film, "It's my least favorite thing. People ask me abo...

Jeff Who Lives at Home
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: We are all connected... Everyone and Everything... Nothing is random... There are signs everywhere.

Don't believe it?

Apparently you haven't seen M. Night Shyamalan's film 'Signs'.

Jeff (Jason Segel) has seen it many, many times. In fact, he's obsessed with it. And so Jeff waits... for a sign. While waiting, Jeff spends his days smoking pot and hanging out in his mother's basement apartment where he lives.

Jeff knows he's destined for something. He's just not sure what that 'something is.' But that's about to change, after our slacker gets...

Actress Susan Sarandon felt "like a failure" after her 23-year relationship with Tim Robbins broke down.

The Hollywood power couple, who met on the set of sports movie Bull Durham, stunned fans by announcing their separation in 2009, and Sarandon insists the break-up hit her hard.

She tells Reuters, "Of course you feel like a failure. It's a big deal, but again, it's an opportunity to grow. At the end of my first marriage (to actor Chris Sarandon), it was about the loss of ideal, about who you thought this person was. I thought love conquered all and I had to reevaluate everything."


Susan Sarandon Still Sizzles At 65 At 'Jeff, Who Lives At Home' Premiere

Susan Sarandon
If you've got it, flaunt it, and that's just what Susan Sarandon did at the "Jeff, Who Lives At Home" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday. But she's a classy sexagenarian, and that's just one of the things we love about her.

We also love that she's still got the same face (more or less) we've seen on screen since "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in 1975. She's aged gracefully and beautifully without succoming to the botox and facelift craze like so many other actresses do.

In the film she plays Jeff's (Jason Segel) mother. Jeff is a slacker who spends much of his time smoking marijuana and e...
