Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split in 2009 after 23 years of unmarried togetherness. The actress took the split very hard, and so did her fans. They seemed like a bastion of stability.
Sarandon reflected on the break up in a chat with Reuters, saying, "Of course you feel like a failure. It's a big deal, but again, it's an opportunity to grow. At the end of my first marriage, it was about the loss of ideal, about who you thought this person was. I thought love conquered all and I had to reevaluate everything. And you need your girlfriends, you need to take long, long walks until you're exhausted and no longer freaking out and you hold on until a new dawn. Then you get another chance."
Sarandon is happy with a single life, though. "It's traumatic and exhilarating," she confessed. "The one thing that's been really clear to me is that you have to think of your own life and your relationship and everything as a living organism. It's constantly moving, changing, growing. I think long-term relationships need to be constantly reevaluated and talked about."
