Susan has had a successful 17-year relationship with actor Tim Robbins. "But," she says, "in Hollywood years, that's like 50 years."
Susan: I think what [Shall We Dance?] says is that you really have to answer for your own happiness. This whole concept that someone fulfills you and the two of you together make a whole, it kind of is getting off on the wrong foot. In this movie, [Richard Gere's character] has fulfilled his dream. He gets what America's dream is about, right? Your nuclear family. You have a great house and garden.
Oprah: Everything's going so well.
Susan: What's the problem? The problem is each of us has to find what it is and keep that alive, keep that spark alive…. Sometimes that means you have to have things outside.
