GMA: Susan Sarandon’s Dogs
Actress Susan Sarandon came by Good Morning America April 17 2013 with two cute puppies in her lap. She also wore a dark blue suit with bright yellow shoes. But it was the puppies George Stephanopoulos asked about and I guess if I was given the choice, I’d probably ask about the puppies first, too. But it would be a tough call.
She didn’t explain why her puppies were with her, although she did say the puppies were upset that they didn’t get to play her dogs in The Big Wedding. One of the dogs, she said, was an actress and the other has a “substance abuse problem.” The latter dog apparently will dig into any bag that has cigarettes, pills or nicotine gum in it and eat it.
GMA: Susan Sarandon The Big Wedding
Susan Sarandon said that she loved doing The Big Wedding, because she’d never worked with Robert De Niro or Diane Keaton. George Stephanopoulos was shocked she’d never worked with Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton. Sarandon said it was because they “only allow one woman per film usually.” She also said that when there are two women in a film, they usually hate each other because one is old and the other is young.
GMA: Susan Sarandon Robert Redford
Susan Sarandon also worked with Robert Redford in The Company You Keep. She said that Robert Redford was an old friend. The movie was filmed during the Arab Spring and she said it was interesting to revisit the atmosphere of that time and what it was like to fight for democracy.
GMA: Susan Sarandon Boston Marathon Bombings
Susan Sarandon said she was downtown in New York during 9/11 and so she knows firsthand what a tragedy like the Boston Marathon bombings is like. She said the one good thing that came from it is that every New Yorker was removed from their normal paths and helped each other. She said that in that way, it was a “unifying blessing.” She said she hoped the same thing happened in Boston.
