Susan Sarandon has been in the business for a lot of years; as lovely and youthful as she still is, it’s difficult to remember that she’s been acting since the early ’70s, and back then things were very different in Hollywood.

The actress opened up about an ugly incident which happened when she was new to the business, comparing it to the “casting couch” stories that seemed to run rampant back then. Unfortunately, it was not uncommon for an actress to be sexually harassed or even assaulted, as the general consensus was that if she really wanted a part, she’d work for it.

“I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second thought, it was so badly done,” she said, adding that it ended up not being “successful” for either of them.

The 66-year old, who had a 20-year romance with actor Tim Robbins before their split in 2009, is now dating a much younger man–35-year old Jonathan Bricklin, a ping-pong entrepreneur. Sarandon has partnered with Bricklin to open a ping-pong club called Spin and is getting serious about the hobby; she spoke about it a bit with Anderson Cooper recently.

    I say more power to Susan S. She is beautiful and talented and she’s certainly not going to get a stiff one from a man her age unless he’s popping viagra like vitamins.

  • Lonnie

    Of course, this crime was so heinous that she reported it to the authorities and the guy went to prison for rape——bet not—-bet she went right along with it to get a job. She is so typically left-wing liberal—-they need attention–constant attention, and this self-pity party is always there in the background! What a fake!!

    • Dawn

      Typical response from a typical conservative. Stereotyping at it’s best.

      • Gwyneth Martin

        Left-wing liberal or not; she never went to the police which tells me it wasn’t so much as an assault as it was her being willing to do anything to get into the business and the ‘assaulter’ being a ‘limp-dick’…politics have nothing to do with rape or any type of assault (other than the screwing we all get from both parties) but for Ms. Sarandon to go on record with this tidbit with such nonchalance leads me to believe it wasn’t as ‘heinous’ as she reports.

  • Dan

    Dammit Janet!

    • johnsnare

      Sarandon, is a hard core left leaning liberal, who has an awfully big mouth. She crucified George Bush for eight years, and should stick to acting. If she is so politically inclined, perhaps, she should consider running for elective office.

      • JJ

        What does this have to do with her political choices? And it seems that YOU are the one looking for attention. If you’ve never been the victim of…well, let’s keep it civil and call it “unwanted sexual attention,” then lucky you. I am a politically liberal woman who, along with my ex-husband, raised two hard-working college graduates, currently works two jobs and doesn’t have any credit card debt. Watch who you’re talking about and don’t make assumptions.

  • Brian

    She’s as ugly today as the first time I saw her walking down Stephenville parkway in Edison in the 60′s

    • Arpard

      What’s the matter Vis? Jealous?

  • jonny rocket

    i just jakked off on her face.

  • Patty

    Years ago, Sarandon made a statement at an awards show, possibly the Oscars, that having HIV was not a crime, and that a large group of foreigners were being denied entrance to the US for being HIV positive. While I agree that having HIV is not a crime, I resented the fact that a wealthy person was telling me, the ordinary tax paying citizen, that I should dig deeper into my wallet to pay for the HIV treatment of a bunch of strangers. Why didn’t she offer to pay for it herself? She’s wealthy.

    sooo…instead of kicking him in the groin, leaving, and filing a police report….she had sex with him. and now says that it wasn’t “successful” for either of them? what would have made it “successful” for her?

    • Michael

      I will NOT watch ANYTHING that this ,,,,,,whatever you wanna call her, I’ll let you decide,,,but I will not watch her PERIOD. Too trashy and cheap.

    • rsd

      @jondaly70: I think what she meant by saying “it ended up not being “successful” for either of them” is that she did not give in to his assault, and he did not give her the part.

  • diane

    Didn’t know there were so many women haters, low to middle class under achievers who vote republican, perverted people on this site.
    Live and let live idiots. Sexual assault scars men and women for life. How people respond to it is nobody’s business. Look at Sandusky victims, they were too traumitized to say a word.

    • jojo

      diane can shut her trap! seems to me that all the under achievers are democrats. U lady, r an I D I O T! Now go get ur handouts

  • H Hefner

    adding that it ended up not being “successful” for either of them…..So Nobody Climaxed?

  • http://YAHOO PAUL

    YOU LIBERALS THAT THINK WHAT SHE DID TO GET AHEAD WAS OKAY ARE THE REASON OUR COUNTRY IS IN THE SHAPE IT IS TODAY. LIBERALS ARE RUINING THIS COUNTRY AND SO WE WILL BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY IF SOMETHING DOESN’T CHANGE SOON.

  • http://YAHOO PAUL

    I DON’T FEEL SORRY FOR HER AT ALL. LIKE THE MAN SAYS, A KNEE TO HIS BALLS AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE END OF IT, BUT SHE DIDN’T DO THAT BECAUSE SHE WAS THINKING MORE ABOUT MONEY THAN ANYTHING ELSE. JUST LIKE A HORE.

  • Man on the Street

    Great set of Chubbies, though!!!

    • Man on the Street

      STILL!!!!!!

  • diane

    To JOJO and PAUL. Didn’t I see both of you together holding hands under the apple tree? I also believe that both of you don’t have a pot to piss in, yet you vote republican (who want to further elevate the wealthy). That is the biggest joke of all.

    Susan Sarandon is awesome. You are also both mysogonistic perverts.
    oooops big words for you? LOL
