Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone.
The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan.
One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government.
'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'Ive had my phone tapped.'
She added: 'I was denied a security clearance to go to the White House and I dont know why.' She asked the audience member jokingly: 'Do you know why?'
Sarandon said she knew she was being watched by the government as she had twice seen a file held on her through Freedom of Information requests, the Daily Beast reported.
Moore, who directed Fahrenheit 9/11 and Capitalism: A Love Story, said he would not be surprised if 'somebody, somewhere' has subjected him to surveillance. 'As it should be,' he laughed.

Of course they are watching her and lardo Moore.
Useful idiots are always the first to go after a commie coup.
Although now I think she is a member of SAG:
I hate to point out the obvious, but this is the government she supported. This is the President these Hollywood nut jobs asked, (no, begged) for. So I guess this proves the old adage: “be careful what you wish for”.
