NEW YORK Actress Susan Sarandon has confirmed rumours about her having a secret fling with David Bowie in the 1980s.
The actress starred with the legendary musician in the 1983 movie “The Hunger”. Earlier this year, her friend Melissa MCCarthy sent gossips into a spin when she mentioned the romance at an awards ceremony in Beverly Hills.
Neither Sarandon nor Bowie responded to the rumour at that time, but now the actress has spoken out to confirm that she did have a relationship with the “Starman” hitmaker around the time they worked together on the movie.
When asked in an interview if she has ever dated a rockstar, she replied, “Bowie… Yeah. He’s worth idolising. He’s extraordinary.”
“That was a really interesting period. I wasn’t supposed to have kids, and I’m the oldest of nine and had mothered all of them, so I wasn’t ever in a mode to where I was looking to settle down and raise a family, so that definitely changes the gene pool you’re dipping into.”
“But Bowie’s just a really interesting person, and so bright. He’s a talent, and a painter, and… he’s great,” she added.
