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.

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."

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."
