Susan Sarandon Admits She Used To Date David Bowie

Susan Sarandon has revealed that she used to be romantically involved with David Bowie, going so far as to call her former lover "extraordinary."

"He's worth idolizing. He's extraordinary," she told the Daily Beast.

"That was a really interesting period. I wasn't supposed to have kids, and I'm the oldest of nine and had mothered all of them, so I wasn't ever in a mode to where I was looking to settle down and raise a family, so that definitely changes the gene pool you're dipping into. But Bowie's just a really interesting person, and so bright. He's a talent, and a painter, and he's great."

Earlier this month, Bowie said he's hard at work on the follow up to 2012's The Next Day, although without adding further details.
