Susan Sarandon Chats With AARP Magazine, Reveals She’s Afraid Of Death

Susan Sarandon recently sat down with the folks at AARP magazine, a chat that found the actress revealing quite a bit of personal information.

In addition to discussing her history with politics and a possible relationship with business partner Jonathan Bricklin, the award-winning actress also touched on one of her own personal fears.

“The only thing I’m really afraid of is death. I still haven’t gotten to the point where I think that’s cool. My life has been filled with happy accidents. The thing that’s served me well is being able to change onto a different track when it’s presented itself,” she explained to AARP.

Although Sarandon said she’s starting to get “that sagging thing,” the actress doesn’t plan to get Botox anytime soon. In her humble opinion, the procedure only makes people look the same. To say in shape, the Bull Durham star said she eats right, exercises, and boxes alot.

The Inquisitr previously reported that Sarandon also told AARP about relationship with Jonathan Bricklin. While she didn’t come right out and say that she’s romantically involved with her business partner, Sarandon suggested it could end up that way.

“Jonathan and I collaborate on different things. That means a lot of things,” the actress said in a very cryptic fashion.

Bricklin previously told People magazine that Susan Sarandon is an amazing woman. Jonathan added that he feels extremely lucky that she would consider him a business partner.

“We have a great relationship. I’ve gone on trips with her to meet with ping-pong players, and she has been extremely generous with her time. She’s one of my closest friends now. But as far as a romantic relationship, we are not having one. I’m flattered people think that we might be,” he told the publication.

Sarandon also told AARP that she’s recently developed a fascination with ping-pong. The actress even stars in writer-director Michael Tully’s Ping Pong Summer, a film that co-stars Lea Thompson, John Hannah, and Amy Sedaris.

The actress also appears in the upcoming comedy Tammy alongside The Heat star Melissa McCarthy, Kathy Bates, and Dan Aykroyd. The film tells the story of a woman who loses her job and embarks on a road trip with her “hard-drinking grandmother.”

Sarandon fans can also catch her in Mothers Day Christin Ricci and Sharon Stone, director Jason Stone’s The Calling, and the animated comedy Hell & Back.
