Recently the star responded to a tweet lamenting the true downfall of Hollywood.
Which is, of course, Sarandon no longer getting to act ‘slutty’ in movies.
Sarandon, 75, has had a tremendous career and acted as the heroine, love interest, villain and everything in between.
If her past and present have proven one thing, it’s that she’s ready to do what she wants.
And she had no qualms about acting slutty in movies again.
The star’s iconic response had people cheering.
Sarandon is known for films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Thelma & Louise, and The Witches of Eastwick. While her variety of films have proven the star’s talent, some people still underestimate her.
As far back as when she acted in Tempest, John Cassavetes told her not to be a mother, otherwise she would “not be sensual anymore.”
Sarandon said of the advice:
“I think I laughed.”
In addition to her prolific acting career, Sarandon has been vocal in social and political activism. She supports progressive policies and at times has been under fire for her own criticisms of supposedly liberal and left-wing politicians.
Through all this, there is still a lot of support for the actor to continue her legacy.
Recently, Sarandon has been reportedly attached to the DC comic book movie, Blue Beetle, playing the villain Victoria Kord. This is after Sharon Stone was initially in talks for the same role.
