Susan Sarandon Blames Her Publicist For The Rumor She Was Feuding With Julia Roberts On “Stepmom”

April 4, 2017 / Posted by:

Before Stepmom came out in December of 1998, there was a rumor that Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts hated working with each other. Both Susan and Julia denied that they were feuding to Entertainment Weekly about a month before the film’s release. Julia called the rumor “boring” and a “yawn” and said she was actually hoping people would have started a better rumor, like that she and Susan were fucking each other. Almost twenty years later, the rumor can finally be throw out along with that a VHS copy of Stepmom that every basement seems to have.

Susan was tweeting about Feud on Sunday night, and eventually she got on the topic of whether or not she and her Feud co-star Jessica Lange hate each other. That lead her to talking about her alleged feud with Julia Roberts. According to Susan, that rumor is 100% false and was started by her own publicist.

I agree with Julia and Susan on this one; a feud rumor is a bit tired. Susan’s publicist could have been a lot more creative with their bogus on-set story telling. Like, if they really wanted to get some attention for Stepmom, someone should have leaked a “story” about how the director shot an alternate proposal scene where Julia’s character does the question-popping by sliding a ring down a string that was tied to Ed Harris’ penis. That’s how you get people talking about a movie release.
