Susan Sarandon Contemplates Directing Porn to Make Roles More ‘Pleasurable’ for Female Actresses

Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon suggested Tuesday that she may direct pornographic films to help make roles more “pleasurable” for female actresses in the industry.

“I have threatened in my eighties to direct porn,” Sarandon said this week, according to The Times. “I haven’t watched enough to know what the problems are.”

The actress’ latest remarks came during a red carpet press junket at the Cannes Film Festival. She was asked to address the role female directors play in the entertainment industry.

Sarandon, who recently charged that filmmaker Woody Allen “sexually assaulted a child,” told the paper that she believes pornographic films are “brutal” toward women.

“I haven’t watched enough to know what the problems are,” the Thelma and Louise star said. “Most pornography is brutal and doesn’t look pleasurable from a female point of view. So I’ve been saying that when I no longer want to act, I want to do that.”

As one of Hollywood’s most vocal Bernie Sanders supporters, Sarandon’s porn comments are a slight deviation from the more politically pointed remarks she’s made in recent weeks.

Last week, she brazenly predicted that “health issues” could keep Hillary Clinton from securing the Democratic presidential nomination.

“She could have health issues. She could not get the nomination,” Sarandon said of Clinton in an interview with Larry King.

On Monday, the 69-year-old actress said Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump “legitimized bigotry and homophobia.”

“The thing that’s interesting about Trump is that the main things that he talks about are absolutely impossible, so they’re not that threatening,” Sarandon told Variety. “He’s obviously not gonna build a wall, he’s not gonna be able to export all the Muslims in the United States. All of those things are impossible to do. So they’re not what’s threatening.”
