Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon’s former boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin says their break-up has not lessened his love for her.
“She’s someone I love more than anyone I’ve ever been with and that won’t change. We’re going to figure out how life proceeds from here,” he said.
Bricklin, 37, and Sarandon, 68, star in the reality series “Connected”. While reports have alleged the stress of filming “Connected” ended their six-year relationship, Bricklin said that’s not the case, reported the New York Post.
“We weren’t broken up (during filming) because we were still seeing each other. Since the piece has come out, we are no longer seeing each other,” Bricklin said.
“This show brought out a lot of stuff in me. This process was like psychotherapy with video. It added challenges to a relationship. And because she’s so public, there were lots of challenges having a relationship with her to begin with.”
Produced by Morgan Spurlock, the reality series focuses on six New Yorkers who film their lives over a period of six months.
Bricklin said over the course of the relationship, he sensed a general perception that he was not good enough for Sarandon.
