Susan Sarandon placed such value on her virginity - she married the first man she slept with.

The OSCAR-winning actress, 58, married actor Chris Sarandon in 1968 who she met during her student days at Catholic University in Washington DC as she believed it was the right thing to do.

They divorced 11 years later in 1979 and Sarandon has since found love with current partner Tim Robbins.

She says, "My kids (JACK, MILES and EVA) are growing up in a different world from the one I grew up in.

"I was a virgin till I was 19, but I don't know if you can expect that from anybody these days.

"I was an incurable romantic, and then I went and married the guy - what was I thinking?"
