It doesn’t matter if you are famous, infamous or unknown — if you want to live life fully, you’ve got to be bold. Take award-winning Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon, for instance. To many of us, it would seem she is living the dream… and in some ways, she is. But being under the spotlight constantly comes with a set of challenges that most folks don’t completely comprehend. From vicious rumours to body shaming, it’s all par for the course as a celebrity. And that’s why we love Sarandon’s bold way of battling haters and taking on trolls.
When fighting a distasteful rumour recently, Susan picked humour as her ammunition. Hit with speculation that she is dating Taken star Liam Neeson, the 70-year-old actress shot back, “I read the headline ‘Liam romancing Susan’ and I thought first: ‘That’s news to me’….” But, instead of trading insults with the media or anything of the kind, Susan decided she’d play along. Having resolved that she was “not going, to tell the truth,” or attempt to set the record straight, the seasoned actress sat back and milked the drama for a private laugh! “I loved that. It was a week of heaven,” she recalls, adding that while she certainly wasn’t seeing Neeson, she thought: “Who wouldn’t want to be in a romance with Liam?” How’s that for a laugh!
