Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon doesn’t live in Hollywood as it knocks her confidence.
The American actress, 69, looks sensational as she gets older and even landed a beauty deal with L’Oreal in January (16).
That’s not to say she buffers bouts of low self-esteem though, which is why she refuses to live under constant scrutiny in Tinseltown, reported Contactmusic.
“It’s very tough, and that’s one of the reasons I don’t live in Hollywood. It’s a town where it’s very hard to maintain your confidence because it’s so self-conscious, it’s such a company town,” she said about being an ageing actress.
“I can just imagine picking up a head of lettuce in a supermarket, running into a producer who then later says: ‘Oh no, I saw her, she is really not looking great these days’, because you are there without any make-up on or whatever. In New York it’s easier to live.”
Susan’s reasoning behind signing with L’Oreal was down to the beauty standard they promote, with fellow faces and ambassadors including Helen Mirren, Julianne Moore and Sophia Loren.
“I think the whole company is about diversity of ethnicity and age, and different kinds of women,” she said, adding, “I wonder if they’d love doing a transgender… that would be good.”
