For the second time in three months, a child of Pound Ridge resident Susan Sarandon had an uncomfortable exchange involving Sarandon’s role in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
Her daughter, Eva Amurri, recently was offered Sarandon’s role of Janet Weiss in a “Rocky Horror” remake. Ben Widdicombe of the New York Daily News cites a “friend” to describe Amurri’s response:
She thought it was funny, but she turned it down because she’s more serious than that. She said, ‘Can you believe that’s what they’re offering me?’
Sarandon’s 18-year-old son, Jack Robbins, reportedly admitted in June to a Manhattan audience that he was viewing “Rocky Horror” in full for the first time. The Daily News said Jack — whose father is Tim Robbins — admitted “he’d never seen the film all the way through because his mother wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t let him watch ‘the naughty parts.'”
Thanks again to Witticombe, who also reported today on the unusual Clinton-Gore reunion at Mars 2112.
