Susan Sarandon is not the type to pull punches. And so it is when she describes to Elle magazine a “disgusting” casting couch encounter that took place early in her acting career.
Entertainment Weekly reports the Academy Award winning actress fell victim to the legendary old Hollywood casting method as she struggled to launch her career in New York.
“I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk,” says Sarandon. “It was not successful — for either of us.” She didn’t spill on the identity of the creepy perpetrator, or what project she was trying to land.
Susan’s most well-known relationship was a 21-year romance with Tim Robbins, whom she met on the set of “Bull Durham.” Sarandon’s current boyfriend is 35-year-old Jonathan Bricklin, a New York-based filmmaker and entrepreneur.
