Political activist and Academy Award–winning actress Susan Sarandon was greeted by dozens of cameras and microphones during her visit to the Occupy Wall Street encampment in late September. One of the first celebrities to lend her star power to the protesters, Sarandon admitted, “I don’t know that much about Wall Street, but if I was running the business and I made that big of a mistake and lost that many people’s futures, I don’t think I would get a bonus or even keep my job, so something’s wrong.” The Dead Man Walking star also gave the occupiers advice on keeping their plans focused: “You have to make your message clear, you have to make your plan doable,” she said, adding, “I’ve always found my hope in people at the bottom making change, not from the top down.”
