Susan Sarandon is back at it again, making tongues wag with her eye-popping cleavage.
The 69-year-old actress stars in designer Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 ad campaign, seductively revealing her gravity-defying assets.
Jacobs shared the sultry shot in an Instagram post, praising Sarandon’s “inherent seductive quality … as a woman who always speaks her mind and an artist who takes risks.”
SUSAN, Seduction Like so many teenagers, I spent countless Friday and Saturday nights at midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the 8th Street Playhouse (which is still standing!) and the Festival Theatre on 57th Street (which has long since closed). TRHPS was a coming of age and right of passage. It became an invitation (or excuse) to dress up and express oneself fearlessly. The cult classic made it cool for boys to wear sequins, satin and fishnets. I fell in love with Susan Sarandon’s onscreen portrayal of Janet during her “loss of innocence” scene by way of a crossdressing alien and her giddy, ecstatic rendition of, “touch-a, touch-a, touch me…” There was a subtle rebellious quality that I found in Susan with how she chose to play Janet and perhaps (as I now look back on it) her decision as a young actor to take a role in a film that challenged the notion of gender roles. In the hyper-stylized, gothic film, The Hunger, Susan’s portrayal as the lesbian love interest of vampire Catherine Deneuve was yet another progressive challenging of normal and a testament to Susan’s artistic exploration of boundaries. It was in my early days at Perry Ellis when I first had the privilege of meeting Susan. Her intelligence, courage, strength, conviction and ballsiness has always been so admirable to me. There’s an inherent seductive quality in Susan as a woman who always speaks her mind and an artist who takes risks. Her talent as an actress is one of extraordinary range, talent and power.

Indeed, Sarandon has never been one to back down when it comes to what she believes in. Earlier this year, she made headlines for boldly showing off her cleavage at the SAG Awards — with TV host Piers Morgan questioning the propriety of her ensemble. Sarandon coolly hit back, dedicating a throwback photo — of you guessed it, more cleavage — to him. And she’s continued to confidently bare her enviable figure ever since, whether she’s rocking the red carpet at Cannes or comparing, ahem, size with Salma Hayek.
Even Morgan tweeted that she looks “fabulous” in the new photos. But of course, Sarandon is already a pro at posing for the camera. She was recently named as a brand ambassador for L’Oreal and said she’s looking forward to growing older.
As for the fashion campaign, Marc Jacobs has included numerous other post-50 celebrities in the new ad series including Sissy Spacek and Courtney Love.
The older ladies are definitely having a moment.
