It's smooth sailing for Susan Sarandon as she gears up for her daughter's wedding.
The Oscar winner says soccer player-turned-sports commentator Kyle Martino, who popped the question to her daughter, Eva Amurri, in December, gets her stamp of approval – even when the waters actually get rough.
"We all just went rafting down the bottom of the Grand Canyon for eight days," Sarandon, 64, told PEOPLE Friday at the Grey Goose Blue Door tournament for her ping-pong bar, SPiN, in East Hampton, N.Y. "You can't do that if you don't get along. He's fabulous – so much fun. He's the best."

Mother really does know best – especially when it comes to weddings.
Just ask actress Eva Amurri. Engaged to Kyle Martino, the player-turned-Fox-Soccer-Channel-commentator, since last December, Amurri, 26, tells PEOPLE that she's relying on her mom's expertise to help plan her nuptials later this year.
Mom, it should be noted, is Oscar winner Susan Sarandon.
"She's so organized. If she asks me, then I do it," Sarandon, 64, said at Thursday night's Perrier-Jouet's 200th Anniversary party at Manhattan's Mondrian Soho.

There's nothing like a Maxim photo shoot to convince a guy he's found the right girl.
"I loved it! I imagined I was the sexy wife left alone, posing around the house in lingerie," actress Eva Amurri tells Maxim of her photo spread in the April issue, on newsstands Tuesday.
Amurri's boyfriend, Fox soccer analyst Kyle Martino, apparently liked it, too. "[He] visited the set, and we got engaged the next day," Amurri says. "Everybody's been teasing him, 'The Maxim shoot sold you, huh?' "

Susan Sarandon is happy to be mother of the bride – and even happier to stay out of daughter Eva Amurri's way when it comes to wedding planning.
"My daughter should do this professionally, she is so on it," Sarandon said Thursday at Brooklyn Academy of Music, where she's the subject of a four-day film retrospective called "The Susan Sarandon Picture Show." "Eva really has very clear ideas of what she wants. I've just weighed in on a couple of things."
"But I have very little responsibility," she added, "so I'm having a great time!"

What's the secret ingredient to Susan Sarandon's youthful looks and vigor?
"I drink light milk as often as I can," Sarandon, 64, tells PEOPLE. "I have it in other ways like drinking it in coffee and I love ice cream. I highly recommend light milk."
The Oscar winner, the latest celebrity spokesperson to don a milk mustache for the "Got Milk?" ad campaign, is also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and says it was a "no brainer" joining the milk campaign.

Susan Sarandon can't say enough good things about her daughter's new fiancé. And it doesn't hurt that she can beat him at ping-pong, too!
"He's just a very sane, really lovely guy. His family's fabulous. He adores her. You couldn't ask for anything more," Sarandon, 64, tells PEOPLE of Kyle Martino, who just became engaged to Sarandon's actress daughter Eva Amurri.
Martino, 29, is an accomplished athlete, having enjoyed a successful career in Major League Soccer before retiring in 2008 and taking up broadcasting. But he still needs some work on Sarandon's favorite sport of ping-pong.

What does a girl do when she can't contain her excitement? Gush on Twitter, of course. At least that's what Eva Amurri did this weekend.
"What a week: I became a cartoon character, did a Maxim shoot, and got engaged! Lol. Not bad, not bad. Thanks for all the congrats!!" the 25-year-old actress posted Saturday.
"The most wonderful man on this planet" she refers to in an earlier Tweet is none other than her boyfriend Kyle Martino, 29, a former MLS soccer player who is now a Fox Soccer Channel commentator. He is originally from Connecticut, and the couple now live together in California.

At 64 years old, Susan Sarandon couldn't be happier.
"I wouldn't want to be 20 now," the actress tell V magazine, in their special Age Issue, also featuring Jane Fonda and Sigourney Weaver. "I know so much more, and I'm much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is."
Sarandon says life's too short to spend it worrying about your body. "When I hear young girls complaining about superficial things ... You're at the peak of your physical beauty right now!" she exclaims. "Just enjoy it and stop worrying about your thighs being too big."

Before they broke up last year, many people figured Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins would beat the odds and make their Hollywood relationship last a lifetime. And that includes Sarandon herself.
"People were coming up to me in the street and saying, 'I cried and cried when I heard,' " the actress tells Britain's Telegraph. "Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either."
Sarandon says the love affair, which began in 1987 on the set of Bull Durham, had just run its course. "You bring people into your life at certain times," she says. "Maybe you have a relationship to have children, and you realize that it's fulfilled after that point."

Sarandon chatted with PEOPLE at Manhattan's Madison Square Park on Sunday, where tables from SPiN – the Manhattan ping pong club in which she's an investor – were set up for people watching the U.S. Open.
