Susan Sarandon says war is US's biggest export
Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon was her usual critical self at the presser on the sidelines of IFFI inaugural in Goa.

War is the biggest export of the US, followed by films, according to Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon.

The actor in Susan took a backseat and the activist sprung forth at a press conference held on the sidelines of the 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here Thursday.

The Academy award-winning actress launched into a spirited conversation about her activism in the US, which she criticised for promoting war.

"For the US, war is the biggest export ... second maybe movies," she said.

War, she said, was a phenomenon "built into the US economy".

Sarandon, who has donned the hat of a United Nations Goodwill ambassador, said both Democrats and the Republicans in the US were responsible for the country's war fetish. But the military forays in the Middle East, which had taken a heavy toll on the superpower's economy, had now made people wiser, she added.

This learning, she said, had resulted in resistance within the country against the government, which was toying with a military strike on Syria.

She further said that her stand against issues like America-going-to-war had often attracted a lot of ire.

"A lot of stories were written against my children, which were not true. There are also a lot of hate jokes in the US," she said.

Movie business hard on women: Susan Sarandon

Movie business is hard on women, according to Academy award winning actress Susan Sarandon who plans to keep working in films until she stops enjoying it.

Sarandon was speaking at a press conference organised on the sidelines of the 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here.

"The business is hard on women," the 67-year-old said, responding to a question about the difficulties faced by aging actresses in Hollywood.

Hollywood, she said, was not apolitical but people lose jobs not because of their political affiliations but because they get either "old and fat".

She was also all praise for Indian cinema legend Waheeda Rehman, who she said was stunningly beautiful and still did films despite her age.

Sarandon, who formally inaugurated the festival Wednesday, also said that she plans to act till she enjoys it.
