  • Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins Refuse to Comment on Syria

    When George W. Bush was president, Hollywood stars turned anti-war activists such as Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins were all over the airwaves touting peace. As America apparently heads to war with Syria under a liberal Commander-in-Chief, such folk are mysteriously silent. The Hollywood Reporter tried to get comments about the war from Sarandon and Robbins at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend, but was told they were "unavailable for comment." Included in the "unavailable for comment" list were other predictably anti-war Hollywoodans such as Josh Brolin and Penn Jillette. To give you an idea just how strong the...

    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: 'I’ve had my phone tapped.'...

    Over the weekend, actress Susan Sarandon discussed her 1995 movie, “Dead Man Walking”; the film was based on a book by Sister Helen Prejean that condemns the death penalty. Sarandon said she sent a copy of the book to the pope, saying, “The last one, not this Nazi one we have now.”Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented on this today:Susan Sarandon’s ignorance is willful: those who have hatred in their veins are not interested in the truth.

"I'm just here to be educated," the "Bull Durham" star said as some of the young demonstrators in the crowd asked each other, "Who is she?" Sarandon, 64, stopped by the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park on her way to catch a flight to Italy. The protesters peppered her with questions about climate change, consumerism and the economy. "It helps to focus on one thing to be accomplished," she advised. "Is everyone here registered to vote?

    Actress Susan Sarandon says she was bored by President Bush's State of the Union address asking Americans to give his troop buildup in Iraq a chance. "He didn't talk to me about anything new," she said Wednesday, her own anti-war stance unaltered. Sarandon appeared with a group of lawmakers in support of a measure to instead withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq within six months. The place to start building support is with the 2008 presidential candidates, she said. "We're hoping to ask all the candidates in the future, everyone that's hoping to run, to really make this part of their...

"Dolphins get excited, even when you are a human being and they have long, long," the "Sin City" hottie told MTV. ". . . I didn't know this until I was being poked by a few of them, which was very rude. I sort of requested female dolphins after that because those...

    Actress Susan Sarandon, a longtime liberal political activist and outspoken opponent of the Iraq war, endorsed an anti-war Democrat challenging Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's re-election bid Tuesday. Sarandon is backing Jonathan Tasini, a labor advocate and former president of the National Writers' Union, who has based his longshot campaign on Clinton's vote in 2002 authorizing military intervention in Iraq. Clinton, who is widely considered the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination if she chooses to run, has sharply criticized the Bush Administration's handling of the war. But she has also refused to call for American troops to be removed...

    Among the things that were brought to light during the recent Presidential campaign was what I would term the "unconscious message" that the Democrats sent to Americans. This unconscious message was a function of, primarily, two things: The impact of standard-bearers — including Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, and Whoopi Goldberg, among many others — who, because of their high profile, came to represent what the Democrat Party stood for to many Americans; and some of the tactics which the Democrats allowed to be employed in the name of electing their candidate. Indeed, while many high-profile Democratic spokespeople might have gotten...

    WASHINGTON – “Lethal Weapon” actor Danny Glover is the latest celebrity facing an icy brand of national pride that puts the pinch on public figures who question American foreign policy. A threatened boycott seeks to force telecommunications company MCI to dump Glover as its pitchman because of views he expressed about Cuba and against the Iraq war. Similar frostiness extended to the Dixie Chicks, and actors Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon when they came out against war in Iraq. Glover said this chill comes from right-wing factions that he denounced as self-appointed thought police. “It’s basically this rabid...

    If it turns out there was an Al Qaeda/Iraq connection, it would be great to be prepared with celebrity quotes denying that connection.Here are two from Sarandon and Streisand.Sarandon plans to act up before State of the Union WASHINGTON - Just before President Bush delivers his State of the Union address tonight, activist actress Susan Sarandon plans to upstage him. "Before our kids start coming home from Iraq in body bags and women and children start dying in Baghdad, I need to know, 'What did Iraq do to us?'" the 56-year-old New Yorker asks in a 30-second television spot that...

    April 22-Janeane Garofalo sounds energized about her whole antiwar thing: "I knew when I started speaking out that it was going to be unpleasant," say the actress-comedian, "and I've taken my punches. But the positives have far outweighed the negatives." SUCH AS? Such as all the unsolicited offers Garofalo has received-speaking engagements, stand-up gigs, stage roles-in the weeks since she proffered her antiwar opinions on news programs. Such as the bundles of attagirl letters and the hearty congratulations of strangers in the street. Such as the sitcom pilot she's making for ABC. The other day, after a decade and a...

    EDMONTON - It's hard to imagine feeling let down when Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon is playing your character in a movie. But that's how Ice Bound reacts to her portrayal in the new tele movie, Ice Bound."I'm disappointed," says the 51-year-old doctor famous for the diagnosis and treatment of her own breast cancer while at the South Pole in 1999. "I wish they would have met me. I think it would have been nice to have had a chance to have them know me before they wrote about me or tried to play me."Based on the book Nielsen wrote about...

    Hollywood Learns Political Hardball ...A little chin music for Tim Robbins Tom Adkins 4/17/03 Little Timmy Robbins is crying foul. The forever-whining co-star of "Bull Durham" was un-invited to the movie reunion by Baseball Hall of Fame President Dale Petroskey, who noted, "this institution should never be used as a platform for public pro-war sentiments - nor public anti-war sentiments." Wary of the minor-league antics of Robbins, nag Susan Sarandon, and the rest of "Team Left", Petroskey did what every good coach does: he stole the signs. Robbins and Sarandon will turn breakfast into a noxious political tirade if there's...

    Dear MGM: Please, no, no, no, say it isn't so! Don't defile the memories of the victims of 9-11 by allowing Mr. and Mrs. Sarandon to be involved with anything related to this national tragedy...Their blatant anti-Americanism taints any effort on their part to attempt to create a film about this event. This is not only disgraceful, it will not be financially successful for your company. The American public just won't tolerate it.
