Susan Sarandon dropped some serious Twitter bombshells this week.

As fans watched the latest episode of Sarandon’s new show Feud, the 70-year-old star took to social media to squash old rumors once and for all that she and Julia Robert battled on the set of the 1998 movie Stepmom.

“Press printed that Julia & I hated each other during Stepmom,” the actress tweeted on Sunday. “Found out it was my PR person creating rumors.”

Sarandon included a 1998 EW article about the alleged feud, in which the actress declared, “If you make a movie with a male star everyone assumes you’re f——. If it’s a female star, everyone assumes you’re fighting.”

Roberts addressed the rumors with a bit of humor.

“Actually, Susan and I were kinda hoping that people would say we were f——,” she told EW then. “Now that’s delicious cockatil-party fodder. But this? Boring.”

She clarified her statement in a follow-up tweet: “…I mean, staying in touch. She’s one of the reasons I agreed to do the series. Working with brilliant actors only makes you better.”
