In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the actress reveals she had a “pretty interesting” love affair with the musician after they met on the set of the film.
“He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary. That was a really interesting period,” Sarandon, 67, says.
The oldest of nine kids, Sarandon spent her younger years raising her siblings and wasn’t looking to settle down or start a family of her own. “That definitely changes the gene pool you’re dipping into,” she says.
While she admits to another hookup with an actor – but doesn’t reveal his identity – she says she’s mostly been in committed relationships.
“I’m pretty much a nester and tend to be monogamous,” Sarandon says.
And although it’s been years since they went their separate ways, Sarandon still has nothing but good feelings for the British-born rocker.
“Bowie’s just a really interesting person, and so bright. He’s a talent and a painter and … he’s great.”
