Susan Sarandon once assaulted during audition

Susan Sarandon, 69, revealed during an interview in the November 2012 issue of Elle magazine that she was once sexually assaulted during an audition — an experience Susan describes as being “really disgusting.” At an audition early in her acting career, Susan “just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk.” She did not reveal which film she was auditioning for when the assault took place. Susan, whose acting career spans more than 40 years,  launched a worldwide petition in 2010 to get state governments to enforce “Safe Harbor” laws that protect victims of sex trafficking. The actress stars in the Wachowski siblings’ newest sci-fi head trip Cloud Atlas, which comes out October 26. ~Brandon Bastaldo

    Why is this coming out now? Doesn’t she have a memoir? Wouldn’t this have been mentioned in the last 40yrs in at least one interview?
