Sarandon Shocked By Zellweger/chesney Press Coverage

Film veteran SUSAN SARANDON was horrified by the amount of press attention devoted to the short-lived marriage of RENEE ZELLWEGER and KENNY CHESNEY, while millions of people are suffering in Sudan.

The DEAD MAN WALKING star is disgusted by the frivolous content of magazines, at the expense of stories of the tens of thousands of people killed in the troubled Darfur region of the African nation.

Government forces and Arab militia have been fighting ethnic minority rebels since 2003, leaving towns destroyed, families ripped apart and many dead.

Sarandon says, "It really blows my mind how the media is using language these days.

"When Renee Zellweger married Kenny Chesney after only knowing him briefly, I couldn't believe how many people said they were 'stunned' she would do something that impulsive.

"Stunned! I'll tell you what I find stunning: how many thousands, if not millions, of people are dying in Darfur and there's barely any press coverage of that carnage. Now that's stunning."

Susn Sarandon is an amazing women to me. She has a lot of passion for the causes she believes in. There is nothing wrong with that. Although sometimes I wonder if she really realizes how alive "free speech" really is? Why is she always lashing out at everyone? I think she has PMS or she is very frustrated with her own life. I mean look at how cute she is. She has a great husband. I do not agree with most of their political rants, but a lot of what they say is very important. But the anger is something only she has control of. People get tired of the anger. They begin to believe it is just because they hate President Bush... they anger tends to minimize their message in my opinion.But if you give them advice about how best to forward their passions - they cry "free speech" or they go on a rant that takes everyone out with that rant. Does Susan believe she is the Mother of all Mothers who takes life so serious it is impossible for her to find love for everyone? Or she the Mother of all Mothers who rules with a big stick?
