Sarandon no longer certain about living together

Susan Sarandon didn’t think she would “ever” split from Tim Robbins. The 63-year-old actress split from the actor – with whom she has sons Jack, 21, and Miles, 18 – last December after 23 years together and admits she is amazed by how much their separation shocked people. Susan told Stella magazine: “People were coming up to me in the street and saying, ‘I cried and I cried when I heard.’ Well, I was sadder. I didn’t think it would ever happen either.” Susan married Chris Sarandon in 1967, divorcing 12 years later, and decided never to tie the knot again as she thought her relationships would be stronger without an official union – something she is now uncertain of. She explained: “I thought that if you didn’t get married you wouldn’t take each other for granted as easily. I don’t know if after twenty-something years that was still true.”

    Wow, its interesting that she’s rethinking her whole stance on the marriage issue after so long….I was surprised by her split from Tim Robbins as well, they seemed like such a stable couple.

    At 63, she should know better then thinking that way. Married or not, it doesn’t make a difference in the couple’s dynamic.

    If someone doesn’t want to commit to you, then you shouldn’t be surprised when it ends.

    True, but at 63, she’s still learning, as is everyone! There’s no tried, tested and true formula, married or not.

    so agree, Germain….but people coming up to her in the streets saying they “cried and cried”….ludicrous

    I knew it wouldn’t last, they’re both awful. I hate it when I’m watching a movie and either one of them is in it.

    obviously there has been some closed door issues going on there. Better they split now under decent or good terms then later under horrible terms. Will likely end up being better for their kids.
