Susan Sarandon’s Tale of the Casting Couch
It’s nearly impossible after decades of a successful career to imagine Susan Sarandon as a fledgling actress, but the 66-year-old was once the victim of those infamous casting couch sessions.
“I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk,” she told Elle magazine. “It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second though, it was so badly done. It was not successful—for either of us.”
According to EW.com, Sarandon did not identify who the man was, only that the incident occurred when she first arrived in New York to go on auditions.
