London, Oct 15 (ANI): Susan Sarandon has opened up about a 'disgusting' casting-couch experience that happened in her younger years.
Talking to Elle magazine, the Oscar winner actress has revealed that as a young hopeful she was the victim of exploitation as she auditioned for a role.
When asked if she had ever had a casting-couch experience, Sarandon said "It was not successful - for either of us."
"I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn't like I gave it a second though, it was so badly done," the Daily mail quoted her as telling the magazine.
But the actress did not give any details of which audition she was assaulted at.
Sarandon had her first audition at 23 when she went to a casting call for the motion picture Joe, landing a major co-starring role in the film, which was released in 1970.
Later the actress went on to win an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the 1995 film 'Dead Man Walking'.
In her interview, as reported on Radar online, she also defended her romance with her much-younger boyfriend, ping-pong entrepreneur Jonathan Bricklin.
"People make him out to be much younger than he is - and me older," Sarandon explained to the fashion magazine, clarifying that he is 35, not 33 as has been widely reported.
They have been linked since 2010 after Susan split from longtime partner Tim Robbins, with whom she has two children. (ANI)
