Susan Sarandon and her longtime love Tim Robbins were together for 23 years, and share 2 sons, Jack and Miles. So it’s no surprise that the public in general were just as upset at the news of their split as they were.
In an interview with New York magazine, Sarandon said that; “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 … But on your deathbed, it’s not really going to matter how those people felt.”
And it’s refreshing to hear that she is still affected by the breakup, and didn’t move on immediately after the split. She goes on to say that . “What I figured out is that the only mistake you can make is to think of your relationship to yourself or your work or your partner or your kids as something that becomes something. And then stays there. You have to see all of those relationships as a breathing thing. We’re still parenting, although it’s different when they’re 18.”
Sarandon and Robbins were one of those couples that I thought would never split up because they seemed so perfect for each other. I admit that I was one of those people who ‘mourned’ their break up because I never saw it coming. It’s refreshing to see that they both are respectful to each other after the end of their relationship, but I still have a hard time remembering that they are no longer together! Did their break-up surprise you?
