Susan Sarandon

Oscar®-winning actress and humanitarian Susan Sarandon talks about her first big break, when she auditioned for an independent film on a whim, which led her to Hollywood and eventually landing leading roles in big feature films, such as Annie Savoy in Bull Durham, Louise Sawyer in Thelma & Louise and Sister Helen Prejean in Dead Man Walking. A New Jersey native and the eldest of nine siblings, Susan opens up about attending a strict Roman Catholic school as a child, which, she explains, shaped her worldview and led to her future social and political activism.

Plus, the mother of three talks candidly about becoming pregnant after doctors told her she wouldn't be able to have kids, aging in a business that is tough on women past a "certain age," and why she believes relationships need to evolve, even if it means parting ways.
