Susan Sarandon Gliding Alone
Susan Sarandon thinks life alone is like flying a glider.
The 'Lovely Bones' actress - who split from her partner Tim Robbins last December after 23 years together - is finding the latest stage in her life "terrifying and exhilarating" but is still trying to get to grips with what happened.
Asked how her life has changed since the separation, she said: "I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it's loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you're suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it's exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That's where I am now."
The 63-year-old star - who has been romantically linked with her business partner Jonathan Bricklin - also revealed she doesn't intend to stay single for long.
Susan - who has three children from two different relationships -told Entertainment Weekly: "It's a long time to not be dating and to then be going back into it. I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship... I think the point is to just keep moving, and to just say yes to life."
