Susan Sarandon Reveals a Past Tryst with David Bowie

"He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary," she gushed.

— -- Like most people, Susan Sarandon went through a wild period.

The actress once had a tryst with "a rock star": David Bowie.

"In terms of hooking up with movie stars, I got married really young [to actor Chris Sarandon], which knocked out most of my 20s to be f***ing around," she told the Daily Beast. "There have been a couple of famous, pretty interesting ones. One rock star [Bowie]."

Sarandon, 67, didn't specify when it happened, though she clearly enjoyed spending time with the singer.

Susan Sarandon Was Stoned a Lot, She Said

"He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary," she gushed. "Bowie's just a really interesting person and so bright. He's a talent and a painter and he's great."

However, she eventually settled down, which came as a surprise to her. After dating director Louis Malle, who was 14 years her senior, she had a relationship with Franco Amurri, who fathered her daughter, Eva, 29. Then, she met Tim Robbins, with whom she was involved for 23 years. They had two sons, Jack, 25, and Miles, 22.

"I wasn’t supposed to have kids," she said. "I’m the oldest of nine and had mothered all of them, so I wasn’t ever in a mode to where I was looking to settle down and raise a family, so that definitely changes the gene pool you’re dipping into."
