“I think the whole culture with selfies and all of this business has made us more and more self-conscious and less and less attached to our tribe,” Sarandon said.

The “Thelma & Louise” actress loves to interact with people in real life but can’t understand why every time she enters a room people turn to their phones to tell people she’s there.

“I love talking to people that I meet, that I’m important to for whatever reason. That might seem somewhat artificial, but I don’t mind. I don’t find that a burden at all. But what’s interesting is that now when I enter a room…everybody picks up their phone and starts saying that I’m there,” the actress said.
