Susan Sarandon on Rumored 31-Year-Old Beau: 'There Are Lots of People in My Life at the Moment'Susan Sarandon has had an interesting ride since her 2009 split from Tim Robbins after 23 years together -- she's gotten into business running a New York City ping-pong club, taken roles in tons of films, and dodged and weaved through myriad reports of a relationship with a man three decades her junior. In an in-depth profile with the UK's Telegraph, she covers it all with style and grace.

"People were coming up to me in the street and saying, 'I cried and cried when I heard,' " Sarandon, 64, says of her split with Robbins, 51. "Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either."

Her reasoning behind the split? Things had simply run their course. "You bring people into your life at certain times. Maybe you have a relationship to have children and you realize that it's fulfilled after that point."
