Susan Sarandon, who famously lived and raised a family with her longtime former partner, actor Tim Robbins, says marriage just isn't her thing.
"I believe in it for other people. I think if it works for you, that's fabulous," the Oscar winner, 66, tells Katie Couric on Tuesday's Katie show. "I don't know, I was always hesitant … this idea of locking it in. I thought it would make it less spontaneous."
Sarandon, who was married in college to actor Chris Sarandon, has been rumored to be involved with her business partner in the New York city ping pong bar SPiN, Jonathan Bricklin, who is more than 30 years her junior. He has denied a romantic relationship, and says the two are simply friends.

Tim Robbins is taking action.
The actor, who famously supports liberal causes, joined with protesters Wednesday at the Occupy Wall Street rally in Lower Manhattan. Robbins, 52, participated in the demonstration outside the Federal Courthouse in Foley Square.
"This is what an actual grassroots movement looks like," he tells the Financial Times. "It's a bit sloppy and disorganized but full of passion."
Demonstrators, who have been camped out in a park near Wall Street since mid-September, are protesting economic inequalities, corporate greed and the influence of corporate money on politics and government.

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.

Tim Robbins encountered a voter's nightmare Tuesday morning when the actor went to his Manhattan polling place and was turned away – for not being on the voter list.

Insisting he be allowed to speak to an official from the city's Board of Elections, Robbins was told he could go to the board's Manhattan office – which he did. Once he was there, board officials verified Robbins was properly registered to vote. Back he went to his polling place.
