SUSAN SARANDON BIOGRAPHY

The following biography is from Wikipedia.org “The Free Encyclopedia.”

 

Susan Sarandon (born October 4, 1946) is an Academy Award-winning American actress.

 

****

 

Biography

 

Early life

She was born Susan Abigail Tomalin in New York City to Phillip Leslie Tomalin (who had Irish, Welsh - from Tondu - and English ancestry)[1] and Italian-born (Ragusa, Sicily) Lenora Marie Criscione. [2] She grew up in a large Catholic family of nine children . She graduated Edison High School in 1964, and then attended The Catholic University of America from 1964 to 1968 where she attained a BA in Drama. Campus legend has it that Susan Sarandon lost her virginity to future husband Chris Sarandon on the 5th floor. She is quoted as saying "I was a virgin till I was 19... and then I went and married the guy."[3]

 

 

Career

In 1969, Susan went to a casting call for the film Joe with her then husband Chris Sarandon; although he did not get a part, she received the major role of the disaffected teen who disappears into the seedy underworld (the film was released in 1970). Susan didn't follow up on the success of that movie, taking roles in lesser films such as Lovin' Molly; it was five more years before she appeared in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a cult classic. That same year, she also played the female lead in The Great Waldo Pepper, opposite Robert Redford. Susan was nominated for an Oscar in 1980 for Atlantic City, but was still not a "household name" until the 1988 film Bull Durham.

 

Susan received four Academy Award nominations in the 1990s, finally winning in 1996 for Dead Man Walking. Her other movies include Stepmom (1998), Anywhere But Here (1999), Cradle Will Rock (1999) (portraying Mussolini's mistress), The Banger Sisters (2002), Shall We Dance (2004), Alfie (2004), Romance & Cigarettes (2005) and Elizabethtown (2005).

 

Susan will appear in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons as herself, which will air in spring 2006; she's appeared on the show once before as a ballet teacher. She has also made appearances on the shows Friends, Malcolm in the Middle, Mad TV, Chappelle's Show, and Rescue Me. She is also noted for frequently appearing in her movies dressed in off-shoulder garments.

 

Sarandon was attacked for speaking out against the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and has confirmed that she would not play "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan in an upcoming movie [4].

 

 

Personal life

While in college, Susan met and married fellow student Chris Sarandon; They divorced in 1979 and she retained her married name as her stage name. In the mid-1980s, she dated actor Franco Amurri, with whom she had a daughter, actress Eva Amurri (born 1985).

 

Since 1988, Sarandon has been in a relationship with actor Tim Robbins, whom she met while filming Bull Durham. The couple have two children: Jack Henry (born 1989) and Miles Guthrie (born 1992). She and Robbins are both involved in left-wing political causes.

 

In 2003, Susan appeared in a "Love is Love is Love" commercial, promoting the acceptance of gay, lesbian and transgendered individuals.

 

In 2005, Susan hosted a section of the Live 8 concert in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 2006, she participated in the 2006 Winter Olympics opening ceremony by carrying the Olympic flag in Turin. In 2006 she also received the "Ragusani nel mondo" prize, since she had recently discovered her Sicilian roots.
