Skip to comments.'I've had my phone tapped': Susan Sarandon claims 'government is watching her'

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.
“Well Susan, welcome to Communism. How do you like it now?”
I thought she was a dyed-in-the-wool Obamabot?
Is she no longer zany ‘bout Bammy?
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!
How do you like your totalitarian, commie state now? And you really thought you’d be one of the elite, not subject to its tyranny? LOL! You’ve taken too many dives off a cliff...
She should be flattered, because no one else is...
But SaranWrap will still vote and campaign for 0baMao won’t she?
Another irrelevant has-been actor desperately seeking attention from the Hollywood moguls. They are in hopes they will be noticed and rewarded with a script by showing their public hatred of America. Let’s see if the ugly bitch gets anything in the next six months.
Cue the Twilight Zone theme.
Maybe Tim Robbins gave her too much LSD??
She lived better under Bush.
Susan, how’s that liberal-progressive democrat thing going for you now-a-days?
Watch your mouth or you will end up on a no fly list too.
I guess someone has to watch that old, washed up has been.
But wait Susie dear. Isn’t the government Obama? He’s your guy right? Right Susie?
More drivel from the star of the “Rocky Horror Show.”
LOL! and GRRRREAT music to read the thread by!
Moore is one of those objects you can see from space I bet.
“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.”
that would be capt. ahab, you blimp.
Moore says “As it should be.” He is willing to be “watched” so all of us right wingers can be watched. What he’s too fat to understand is when a true right wing dictator gets in his fat ass is grass.
Sarandon has her tin foil hat on upside-down.
I'm trying to make up my mind whether he looks like "Chet" creature in Weird Science, or Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars.
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”.
