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.

Well Susan, welcome to Communism. How do you like it now?
What a pair of idiots. Why would left-wing, America-hating anti-capitalist Obama have Michae; “Jabba the Hut” Moore under surveillace? To hear all of Jabba’s left-wing, America-hating anti-capitalist conversations? Same with washed up old hag Sarandon. These are Hussein Obama’s core constituents!
Very Nice. lol
line of the day!!!!!!
It was probably tapped by the Secret Service, but for completely different reasons then she’s thinking it was.
I guess she hasn’t given enough to the Obama campaign....
With Moore's girth, it's impossible to miss him from five miles out.
She’s cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
Hey, can you imagine a WORSE assignment than having to watch Michael Moore at him home all day? that is given to agents that were once caught with hookers.
Stew in your communism, bitch.
Welcome to Commieland, babe. Under that system, it can be more dangerous to be one of the movement’s “friends” than one of its enemies. Just ask the ghosts of Leon Trotsky and Che Guavera.
It could also be drug use. Many drugs cause that kind of paranoia. But just because she's paranoid doesn't mean she's wrong.
Sure is Susie, your fellow Marxist, Eric Holder is stalking you.
They were never married. Where do I sign up for a job as a fact checker?
She even looks insane!
