Susan Sarandon Tackles Empty Nest Syndrome

For years Susan Sarandon resisted the urge to appear on Broadway, for the late nights weren’t conducive to the early morning demands of family life. Now that her three children — Eva Amurri, 23, Jack Henry, 19, and Miles Guthrie, 16 — are “old enough” that they “don’t want” to see as much of their mom, she’s signed on to star in Exit The King. “I’ve spent 25 years directing my family,” the 62-year-old actress notes to New York magazine, and the “seismic, huge” changes brought on by a rapidly emptying nest have her thinking that the timing is finally right.

“I’d be quite content to stay home, but I felt like I was putting too much of a burden on them to help create my world.”

Eva is Susan’s daughter with ex-boyfriend Franco Amurri; Jack and Miles are her sons with longtime partner Tim Robbins.

Exit The King runs now through mid-June at the Barrymore Theater in New York City.

I thought Susan Sarandon’s oldest was the daughter of she & Mikhail Berishnikov (?).
Or is that Jessica Lange?

Susan Sarandon is one of my all time favorite actresses and I think she has taken her role as a parent with a lot of seriousness too.I heard that Eva is trying to be an actress too, she has quite a reputation to live up to.
