Susan Sarandon Talks Split & Mother-Child Tattoos

In an interview with New York magazine, Susan Sarandon talks openly about her split from Tim Robbins and getting tattoos with her kids.

On her public break up in December of last year she says, “the nation mourned. I had a lot of people who came up to me and were not as upset as I was—but were definitely upset. I did feel a sense of responsibility, because I knew that people had a certain idea of how I was and who we were. And in that sense …(pause)

“But on your deathbed, it’s not really going to matter how those people felt.”

Sarandon, 63, has three children. Eva, 25, with director Franco Amurri, and Jack, 20, and Miles, 17, with Robbins. Eva is an actress, Jack is a film student, and Miles is a recent high-school graduate. She reveals that they got tattoos together.

Eva got the Latin word “conscientia” printed in an old-fashioned typewriter font, Jack has an image of Ganesh, and Sarandon has one with her children’s initials scrolled down her spine in the New York Times font. She also has one above her wrist that’s a spiky band with blue letters reading ANDAND: “A New Dawn A New Day.”

She says that all three children are leaders adding, “I remember going to teachers’ night,” she says. “And it was always, ‘Jack’s a leader,’ and ‘Miles is a leader in his class,’ and ‘Eva’s a leader in her class.’ I thought, No wonder our home is the way it is! There’s not one follower. Nobody that listens. This tumultuous place, where everyone is so passionate.”

    I’ve admired Susan Sarandon since her movie days of the 1980s; and especially in “Thelma & Louise.” I’m very sorry to hear about her marriage split, but being a divorced woman myself, I definately empathize with her.

    She looks wonderful in your photo above, and in the one with her son on Celebrity Baby Scoop. I think it’s great that the 4 of them mutually decided to get tattooed together. It’s a positive ritual bond that will be with them for life–and beyond.

    I’ll continue to follow your site. Thanks for writing a touching, sensitive article on Susan (and all the other celebs ,too!)

    Correction: I’ve admired Susan since her movie days of the 1970s, through the present. Not just the 1980s. Thanks.

    The “nation mourned”????? Honestly, could people in Hollywood be any more self absorbed? That is a ridiculous statement.
