Susan Sarandon Wants To Direct Female-Friendly Porn In Her 80s

Kering And Cannes Film Festival Official Dinner : Photocall At The 69th Cannes Film Festival

Today, in just when you think Susan Sarandon couldn’t possibly get any cooler, she shows you how wrong you are: When the actress/activist is tired of acting, she’s thinking of embarking on a second career directing adult films. And why shouldn’t she?

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, Sarandon — who already has a fair amount of experience with sex scenes of the non-hardcore variety — said she’d like to bring her unique female perspective to the business of pornography.

Via The Guardian:

“I have threatened, in my 80s, to direct porn,” she said. “I haven’t watched enough to know what the problems are. Most pornography is brutal and doesn’t look pleasurable from a female point of view. So I’ve been saying that when I no longer want to act, I want to do that.”

To demonstrate her credentials, Sarandon spoke of all the times she’s collaborated with directors to make her sex scenes more meaningful, like her tryst with French hottie Catherine Deneuve in the 1983 vampire flick “The Hunger” (which also stars David Bowie and which you should see if you haven’t):

“It was Tony Scott’s first film and I intervened in the script. First of all it was written that I was drunk and I said, ‘Seriously? You have to be drunk to get into bed with Catherine Deneuve? I don’t think so. Isn’t it more interesting if it is voluntary?’”

A lot of people know what’s in the middle, but what makes a sex act really interesting is how that first touch happens, how that first kiss comes, so in ‘The Hunger’ Tony allowed me to come up with an idea about the T-shirt and then the kiss. Those moments need to be looked at.”

Of course, if Sarandon is serious about getting into the business, she should know there are already plenty of women creating various interpretations of “female-friendly porn,” from feminist porn pioneer Annie Sprinkle to Tristan Taormino to Stoya. And, contrary to popular belief, not all women like it gentle; women’s fantasies can run the gamut from “softly lit romance novel cover” to “scream-filled BDSM scene.” But given what I know of this woman, I’m hopeful she’ll do her research before she blunders into Rashida Jones territory.

I wish Sarandon the best of luck on her imminent X-rated endeavor.
