David Bowie: Susan Sarandon's final conversation with old flame ‘Things needed to be said’


Back in 1983, David Bowie starred opposite Susan Sarandon in Gothic vampire movie The Hunger. Now in a new interview, the Thelma and Louise icon has confirmed the rumour that the pair were lovers around that time. But, of course, Bowie went on to marry supermodel Iman who he had daughter Lexi with.

Speaking with You, Sarandon confirmed they did keep in touch over the years.

The 75-year-old said: “Yeah. Not that we hung out a lot – he had a number of health issues to deal with – but we did.”

Bowie died of liver cancer on January 10, 2016, but had not made his condition public when diagnosed 18 months prior.

Sarandon remembered: “I was fortunate enough to be closer to him right before he died, the last couple of months.”

Sarandon, whose tone sounded like she still cared deeply for Bowie, continued: “He did find me again. We talked to each other and said some things that needed to be said

“I was so fortunate to be able to see him when he told me what was going on with him.

“I love his wife Iman, someone who was so equal in stature [to him]. That was clearly who he was destined to be with.

“I was so happy that she was with him through all of that. And I’ve kept in touch with her.”

Strangely enough, upon awaking, Sarandon wondered if Bowie had called her, which it turns out he had.

She said: “I went to my phone and he had. I have no recollection of what that conversation was.”

Her final intimate chat with him remains a blank for her. She added: “He died a week later. It’s all so frustrating.

“There was a double rainbow in New York on the day that David Bowie passed.”
