Susan Sarandon Talks Life & Love After Tim Robbins

In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, Susan Sarandon opens up life after her split from Tim Robbins, describing it as "exhilarating and terrifying at the same time."

"It's a long time to not be dating and then go back into it," she said. "I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship. Whatever happens next in terms of romance and partners, I don't know."

Sarandon did nothing to dispel rumors of a relationship with 31-year-old ping-pong aficionado Jonathan Bricklin. "No comment," she told the magazine. She also said she loves being called a cougar.
