Susan Sarandon’s not only one of the most talented actors out there and but is also known for her social activism. It’s no surprise then that when the Atlantic City star spoke to BuzzFeed about her new comedy-drama The Meddler, she dropped some wise words…

How should I respond when my family asks me for the millionth time when I’m going to get married?

If your parents ask you for the millionth time when you’re going to get married, maybe just say, “I am married. And I don’t want to talk about it”.

Or you know what else you could do? Just say that you’re going into an order of nuns. And then they’ll be so happy that you’re not behind a wall somewhere not speaking for the rest of your life, that they’ll be happy you’re single.

What is one thing you think women in their twenties should experience?

Sex. Travel. Rock and roll. Road trip.

What’s the best way to introduce your new boyfriend to your mother when he comes home with you?

This man just saved my life, so I thought I would bring him home for dinner — or she.

If I have to initiate texting someone or making plans with them, does that mean they’re not interested in me?

I don’t know, that’s a tough one. I would initiate. You know, I do everything wrong. I don’t play by any rules, but look where it’s gotten me. So, I mean, I probably would text about something else, or send an article, or copy a tweet and send it or something. Not say, “Hi, I really miss you since I saw you 10 minutes ago”. I wouldn’t do that. I’m not that bad.
