THELMA AND LOUISE star Susan Sarandon tried her hand at talk-show hosting
on Friday night (17DEC04) - and she took the opportunity to take jabs at a few
The actress, who brought along her husband Tim Robbins as her sidekick
while hosting THE LATE LATE SHOW, has often been criticised for her liberal
views, and used her TV spot as an opportunity to jokingly hit back at a few
opposing political views.
She said, "As you know, I'm an involved citizen, I ask questions and I
participate in my democracy, which sometimes has put me at odds with the
neo-conservatives. But what I love about the holidays is that now's a time to
mend our differences
and put our differences behind us.
"Since some of the people with whom I've had differences were kind enough
to send me some holiday greetings, I decided to share their generous spirit by
showing their Christmas cards."
A card credited to having arrived from Arnold Schwarzenegger has the words
'Season's Gropings' printed inside, while another bearing Mel Gibson's name
read, "Peace on Earth and goodwill towards men... mainly Christians."
She also shared a "greeting" from US President George W Bush and his wife
LAURA which read, "Enjoy the audit."
