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."

Don't expect to spot Susan Sarandon toting her yoga mat and running shoes around town.
"I think ping pong is the most fun way to stay in shape," says the actress. "You really work up a sweat and it's fun. It's good for your mind as well as your body."
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.

Susan Sarandon wasn't the only one upset by her split from longtime love Tim Robbins last year – legions of fans were also thrown by the announcement.
"The nation mourned," Sarandon tells New York magazine. "I had a lot of people who came up to me and were not as upset as I was – but were definitely upset. I did feel a sense of responsibility, because I knew that people had a certain idea of how I was and who we were … But on your deathbed, it's not really going to matter how those people felt."
Despite the split with the 51-year-old Robbins after their 23 years together, the actress, 63, says she is still sorting out their relationship in her head.

Ever the fashion plate, Susan Sarandon was sporting a new accessory at Wednesday's New York premiere of HBO's biopic about right-to-die activist Jack Kevorkian, You Don't Know Jack: a black foot bandage and crutches.
The cause? "Break dancing," the Oscar winner told reporters in jest, before finally coming clean – and revealing that she fell while in Port-au-Prince on a recent mercy mission to St. Damien Children's Hospital, along with Demi Moore and other stars on behalf of Artists for Peace and Justice, as the island still recoves from the devastating Jan. 12 earthquake.

Susan Sarandon and her ping-pong club partner Jonathan Bricklin have dodged questions about whether they're dating. But the pair are apparently friendly enough to travel together.
Sarandon, 63, and Bricklin, 31, were photographed riding a train to Machu Picchu in Peru Thursday, where the actress is scheduled to attend the reopening of the Inca citadel. Torrential rains shut down the historic ruins, popular among tourists and hikers, for two months.
Sarandon and Bricklin, who are co-investors in SPiN, the New York City ping-pong bar, have denied rumors that they're an item. Sarandon split from her longtime partner Tim Robbins in December and tells Entertainment Weekly that while she loves "the idea of being in love" she doesn't know what's in store "in terms of romance and partners."
Shedding some light on what is going on between them, Bricklin tells the New York Observer about Sarandon: "She's amazing and I'm so lucky to be her business partner. We have a great relationship. I've gone on trips with her to meet with ping-pong players, and she has been extremely generous with her time. She's one of my closest friends now. But as far as a romantic relationship, we are not having one. I'm flattered people think that we might be."

Splitting from her longtime partner, Tim Robbins, three months ago has left Susan Sarandon with some mixed – but hopeful – feelings.
"I did a movie a long time ago where I had to fly in a glider," the Oscar-winner, 63, tells Entertainment Weekly in its new issue. "You get towed up in the air by a plane, and it's loud and annoying. And at some point you pull the cord and you're suddenly floating, and in your mind it makes absolutely no sense. But it's exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. That's where I am now."
But Sarandon, who called it quits with Robbins in December, hasn't let that fear change her outlook on courtship – or love.

At 63, Susan Sarandon appears to have found the fountain of youth.
Newly single after ending her 23-year relationship with Tim Robbins in December, the Oscar winner is glowing and happy – and rumored to be dating a man half her age, entrepreneur Jonathan Bricklin (the pair have denied a romance).
So what's her secret to looking great?
"Don't smoke!" Sarandon told PEOPLE Thursday night at the Pre-Oscar Ping-Pong Party at West Hollywood's Skybar. "It's just so bad for your complexion. And I guess be as happy as possible. That really helps."

Susan Sarandon must be getting really good at ping-pong.
The Oscar winner, 63, frequently has been hitting the New York City ping-pong club SPiN, in which she is an investor, since her recently announced split from actor Tim Robbins, 51, her companion of 23 years. And she is often spotted chatting with Jonathan Bricklin, 32, a handsome SPiN co-investor whom she's rumored to be dating. (Both she and Bricklin have denied a romance.)
On Tuesday night, she and Bricklin were both at SPiN and spent time talking closely – but didn't show any overt signs of being more than friends.

Two weeks after announcing her split from longtime partner Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon is not slowing down: In fact, the 63-year-old single star has been spotted out at several New York City nightspots.
One of Sarandon's favorite hotspots is SPiN, the ping-pong club where she's an investor. On Tuesday night, she strolled into the place just before 8:00 p.m., wearing a slouchy black newsboy cap and sneakers to chat with one of her partners at the lounge, Jonathan Bricklin, and a few friends. Rumors have swirled of a romance between Sarandon and 32-year-old Bricklin, but reps for both have denied it. Still, Sarandon seems to be enjoying the single life.
Here's how she's surviving the break-up!
Hanging out with Younger Guys
Sarandon spends a lot of evenings hanging out at her club SPiN with the young crowd that frequents the place – including Bricklin. On Tuesday, she popped in for just 20 minutes before she was out the door – perhaps to check out another late night hotspot.
