Susan Sarandon was born in 1946. The native New Yorker landed a role in the cult classic film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in 1975. Sarandon's career really took off with appearances in "The Witches of Eastwick" (1987) and "Bull Durham" (1988). In "The Witches of Eastwick", she played a woman seduced by the devil played by Jack Nicholson. In "Bull Durham", she played a female baseball team owner who develops a relationship with one of her players played by Tim Robbins. Thelma and Louise (1991) remains one of her most notable projects in which Sarandon starred with Geena Davis. The story is centered around two friends who set off on a road trip that ends up going terribly wrong. Sarandon received an Oscar nomination for her role in that film.
