Susan Sarandon hasn’t given up on love.
The “Stepmom” star says she’s “forever hopeful” that she’ll find love again following her long-term romances with Tim Robbins and Jonathan Bricklin.
“In terms of a romantic relationship, I don’t know,” she told People. “That window may have closed, but I’m forever hopeful — but not desperate.”
Sarandon, 74, allowed that, if she couldn’t have a romantic relationship, she’d take a travel partner.
“I would like to have a travel companion, male, female — age doesn’t matter,” she shared, “but I would like to find someone who’s [got an] up-for-an-adventure kind of attitude. And also, who cares about something passionately and who loves what they do, whatever that is.”
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made meeting new people — romantically or otherwise — far more difficult, even for Hollywood icons.
“I guess my point is I’m pretty open, but I don’t know,” added the Oscar winner. “COVID isn’t exactly the most perfect dating situation to be finding people. So, I don’t know, but I’m pretty happy making memories with my kids.”
The “Thelma & Louise” star is mom to actress Eva Amurri, 35, whom she shares with Italian director Franco Amurri, as well as her children with actor Robbins: director Jack Henry Robbins, 31, and musician and actor Miles Robbins, 28.
Sarandon dated Robbins for 23 years after meeting in 1988. She then dated ping-pong entrepreneur Bricklin from 2010 to 2015.
“I’m kind of getting off on being by myself,” she recently said on Dear Media’s “Divorced Not Dead” podcast. “I think I’m pretty open to the idea of being with someone, but, you know, it certainly would take someone extraordinary to share my medicine cabinet at this point. I think that those days are over.”
