Susan Sarandon Will Never Forget That Time She Diddled Catherine Deneuve

Screen icons Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve once shared a truly international sex scene in The Hunger.

Though they filmed it in 1983, Sarandon seems to have trouble forgetting the intimate moment.

 According to Page Six:

“I’m the only presenter to have actually slept with [Denueve],’’ Sarandon told the black-tie audience at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s tribute to the French icon Monday night. Her quip was followed by a scene from the 1983 vampire flick “The Hunger,’’ in which Deneuve and Sarandon have a sizzling lesbian sex scene.

    That scene was amazing, loved the use of the Flowers duet.

    The book was better, even though Strieber became a bit whacked out later. David Bowie gave this film depth and was a joy to behold. The vamp’s were believable, though it seemed tedious to Deneuve to be in this flick. I wish Bowie would act more. He’s intuitive and subtle. I once drove all the way to San Francisco to see, “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.” It was shown in a seedy, little theater near Polk. It also was disappointing that the ending of The Hunger (film) was different than the ending in the book. Deneuve is a classic beauty. The film gained nothing from the sex scene. The music scenes were more interesting.

    Watch Susan Sarandon talking about this scene in “The Celluloid Closet”…It’s a Hoot!!

    Sarandon’s scene with Deneuve was designed to prop up the sleazy straight guy fantasy for girl-girl action. It was NOT designed to help the GLBT cause. Buzz, off, Sarandon. You and Deneuve are grubby girls who aligned with the views of sexist and homophobic men.

    I agree with you jason. In fact I agree with a lot of your posts about the gay men/lesbian double standard. ENOUGH ALREADY DOWN WITH DOUBLE STANDARDS

    @jason: @samo: Did you guys actually watch the interview Susan gives in the Celluloid closet where she explains the scene? before you start judging, maybe inform yourselves a little because you certainly do not appear smarter for your words. She explicitly states that she didn’t want the scene to be anything but genuine, and when the script first suggested the character gets into it because she’s drunk, she vetoed and had that changed so it appeared as a natural inquisitive experience.

    Ugh. Let us enjoy this incredible hotness, misogynists, especially considering that it was 1983.
