Susan Sarandon: Why I Never Married Tim Robbins

Posted: Updated:

Susan Sarandon gives an interview to UK's Telegraph about her split from Tim Robbins, her new tattoos (see photos here), her role in Wall Street 2 and her new interest in ping-pong.

Susan's ping-pong club business partner, Jonathan Bricklin, recently told New York magazine that they are not dating but "spend a lot of time together."

Here are some excerpts, read the whole thing here.

On marrying Chris Sarandon (her only husband) at 20:
"He was the first person I ever had sex with and my best friend. I married so young but took it very seriously; I never had that kind of free-love 1960s. I was slow to lose my virginity. In fact, throughout my life I've been with so few people; I'm one of those serial monogamists. I was never that wild, although I was a bit of a hippie chick. I think I probably still am a hippie chick."

On never considering marriage with Tim Robbins:
"I've always liked the idea of choosing to be with somebody. I thought that if you didn't get married you wouldn't take each other for granted as easily. I don't know if after twenty-something years that was still true."

On their breakup:
"People were coming up to me in the street and saying, 'I cried and cried when I heard.' Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either... You bring people into your life at certain times. Maybe you have a relationship to have children and you realize that it's fulfilled after that point."
