Susan Sarandon hot at 60+

As reported last week Susan Sarandon may be over 60,  yes I said over 60 but from the photos she could give many a younger model a run for their money.   Susan sensational at 62 Yep 62!!! Susan Sarandon rolls back the years as she recreates Hollywood pin-up as do other top celebrities.

Susan Sarandon (born October 4, 1946) is an Academy Award-winning American actress. She was born Susan Abigail Tomalin in New York City to Phillip Leslie Tomalin (of English, Irish, and Welsh ancestry) and Lenora Marie Criscione (who was born in Ragusa, Sicily). Susan grew up as the eldest of nine children in a large Roman Catholic family. She graduated from Edison High School in 1964, and then attended The Catholic University of America from 1964 to 1968 where she attained a BA in drama. While in college, she met and married fellow student Chris Sarandon in 1967. They divorced in 1979 and she retained her married name as her stage name.  In the mid-1980s, Sarandon dated director Franco Amurri, with whom she had a daughter in 1985,  actress Eva Amurri. Since 1988, Sarandon has been in a relationship with actor Tim Robbins, whom she met while filming Bull Durham.  The couple have two sons: Jack Henry (born 1989) and Miles Guthrie (born 1992). Sarandon and Robbins are often involved in the same social and political causes.  Susan has starred in many films from The Witches of Eastwick to the legendary Thelma and Louise

In the photo that launched him into the book, Sarandon is posed seductively on the floor, legs in the air, wearing nothing more than fishnet stockings, a feather boa, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and a beguiling smile.

Sarandon, a staunch feminist despite her regular appearance in films in a state of undress, has stripped off for a good cause. The Oscar-winning star is one of 23 stars – and certainly one of the raciest – who have recreated the style of seductive Hollywood pin-ups from the 1940s.  Susan told The Los Angeles Times: ‘There were all kinds of things going on simultaneously – I remember trying to keep the boa in place covering my breasts. I recall that it was a little bit chilly lying there on the floor. I was arching my back and they had to put my hair down and around with the boa on the floor. Celebrated photographer Timothy White convinced stars including Sarandon, Kate Hudson, Cindy Crawford, Vanessa Williams and Denise Richards to take part in the risqué images.

Kate Hudson shows her cheeky side in a fishnet body stocking and Christian Louboutin heels. The sensational shots appear in White’s coffee table book Hollywood Pin-Ups, with proceeds going to Oxfam. Despite the sexual nature of the shots, White insists the women are empowered and confident.  He said: ‘All the great pin-up artists glorified the female form without being offensive.

Adding to the fantasy theme of the  images, White believes he has the artistic licence to digitally manipulate and airbrush the photos to perfection.  Sarandon who has been photographed by White for over 20 years and jumped at the chance to recreate the classic pin-up.

White went on to say “These weren’t meant as titillation, they are a homage to the pinup artists like Vargas and George Petty. The women they portrayed didn’t look objectified. They were strong women who looked sexy and confident and projected that confidence.” That’s why the book includes women of all ages — from 22-year-old Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen to 49-year-old Rebecca De Mornay and 62-year-old Susan Sarandon. “That smile set me off on this whole project,” said White, who captured it, then polished the image to Vargas-like perfection.

The images were inspired by Peruvian artist Alberto Vargas, who painted semi-naked women for Esquire magazine in the 1940s.  The girls became known as ‘Varga girls’ and were often painted on World War II aircraft. Hollywood Pin-ups by Timothy White is published by Collins Design, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, priced at £20.  Well worth it Hollywood from the past and all for a good cause.
