Susan Sarandon: I need dating tips

Susan Sarandon finds it hard to meet anyone new in a bar as she thinks fans wanting photos is "off-putting" for a potential boyfriend.

The 68-year-old actress is back in the dating game at the moment after breaking up with Jonathan Bricklin earlier this year. Despite having had several romances in her life, including musician David Bowie, Susan is clueless on how she will go about finding a new beau.

"I wouldn't even know where to look for a man in LA," she sighed to Us Weekly. "Do you know where to look for a man in LA? I have no idea how to meet anybody, really. I'm just recently single, so I'm just bopping around trying to figure it out."

Susan married her college boyfriend Chris Sarandon in 1967 and although they divorced over ten years later, the star kept his surname. She hasn’t tied the knot since, but has sons Jack and Miles with former long-time partner Tim Robbins and daughter Eva with filmmaker Franco Amurri.

One reason she is put off going out to meet people is because of the attention her fame garners, especially with fans.

"I can't really go to a bar, because when I go to a place and sit down, then everybody wants pictures," she added. "And then it's kind of off-putting for anyone."

She believes she and Jonathan struck up a relationship because they knew each other so well before hand having met during a road trip in Chile in 2010.

Now the actress is desperate for advice on other ways to find love. While the younger generation are turning to dating apps like Tinder, the idea doesn’t appeal to Susan.

"I don't think that the swiping right or left would work for me," she noted.
