Happy birthday, Susan Sarandon! The spunky actress turns 70 on Oct. 4 and is still one of our all-time favorite redheads. We’ve envied her looks since “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” wanted to be her best friend since “Thelma and Louise,” and have always admired her for being an inspiration when it comes to aging and body confidence.
We’ve rounded up some of her most inspiring and interesting quotes. Susan, we hope you keep rocking your cleavage in this decade and beyond!
