Happy birthday to the lovely, fiercely talented, politically-minded Ms.Susan Sarandon! This Oscar-winning actress (for 1995’s Dead Man Walking) has been working in film since 1969 and celebrates her 66th birthday today. Loved for her role in classics that include The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Thelma & Louise, and Bill Durham, she is equally notable for her political and social activism. A UNICEF goodwill ambassador, and the recipient of the 2006 “World Lifetime Achievement Award” at the Women’s World Awards in New York, Ms. Sarandon dedicates her life to human rights. Most memorable may be her 1993 appearance presenting at the Academy Awards with former partner Tim Robbins, in which they seized the opportunity to draw attention to the hundreds of Haitians contained at Guantanamo Bay suffering with AIDS.

Happy Birthday Susan Sarandon. We love you!
