Susan Sarandon Reveals 'Disgusting' Casting Couch Encounter

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad Sad

Susan Sarandon wasn't always the star she was today and when she was just starting out as an actress in New York, she experienced the shady "casting couch" business practice that still haunts the industry to this day.

In November's issue of Elle magazine, the 66-year-old recounted a "disgusting" audition experience during which she was sexually assaulted and explained:

“I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second though, it was so badly done.”

Luckily, his charm forceful advances didn't work, since Sarandon continued:

“It was not successful — for either of us.”

Either way, it sounds like an awful experience.

Such a shame that people like that anonymous perv continue to get away with it!

    More than HALF of the major actressess in HollyWeird slept their way to the top, and often they were the ones putting out in order to get the part. Julia Roberts, alledgedlly, slept with more old creaky producers, and saw more ceilings, than MichaelAngelo. Now, not so much. She went into a bar recently, and the bartender asked: 'WHY the long face?'. LOL ! She is one dog these days ! Woof !
