Susan Sarandon wasn’t the only one upset by her split from longtime love Tim Robbins last year – legions of fans were also thrown by the announcement.
“The nation mourned,” Sarandon tells New York magazine. “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.”
Despite the split with the 51-year-old Robbins after their 23 years together, the actress, 63, says she is still sorting out their relationship in her head.
