Susan Sarandon is still a little stunned to be single, says Chris Nashawaty in Entertainment Weekly. She broke up with partner Tim Robbins last year, after a two-decade relationship that began on the set of Bull Durham in 1988. “It’s a long time to not be dating and then be going back into it,” admits the actress, who is 63. “I think the point is to just keep moving.” Gossip columns have linked her romantically to 31-year-old filmmaker and entrepreneur Jonathan Bricklin, with whom she co-owns a ping-pong club in New York City, but Sarandon insists that she’s in no rush to start a relationship with anyone. “I certainly love the idea of being in love, and I love the idea of companionship,” she says. “Whatever happens next in terms of romance or partners, I don’t know.”
After all those years with Robbins, Sarandon says there’s a strange, silent void in her life, which isn’t necessarily bad. “I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly in a glider. You get towed up in the air by a plane. At some point you pull the cord and you’re suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That’s where I am now.”
