In 2014, Sarandon told AARP the Magazine that her role in the Broadway play Exit the King made her reevaluate her relationship with Robbins.

"You can't do a meditation on death and stay in a situation that's not authentic," she said. "It made me examine where I was in my union and in my life, and to have discussions about making changes."

Sarandon and Robbins split marked one of the most shocking Hollywood breakups.

"People were coming up to me in the street and saying,  'I cried and cried when I heard.' Well, I was sadder! I didn't think it would ever happen, either," Sarandon told the U.K. newspaper The Telegraph in 2010, adding, "You bring people into your life at certain times. Maybe you have a relationship to have children and you realize that it's fulfilled after that point."

Also in 2010, Sarandon began dating Jonathan Bricklin who later appeared with her on Morgan Spurlock's AOL Originals series Connected. The actress and her now-40-year-old co-star split in 2015.

Sarandon opened up about her love life in an interview with earlier this year. She said she is a "serial monogamist." She also talked about her sexuality.

"Yeah, I'm open. My sexual orientation is up for grabs, I guess you could say," she joked.
