Susan Sarandon: ‘You Can’t Just Vote Your Vagina’

She supports Bill de Blasio for NYC mayor.

Don’t tell all those women’s studies majors. Susan Sarandon admitted that she was initially interested in Christine Quinn in the New York City mayoral race, but soon “it became clear to me that, you know as a woman, you can’t just vote your vagina.” Sarandon has thrown her support behind Bill de Blasio, the city’s public advocate. Sarandon said she found out about de Blasio from Cynthia Nixon, another one of his celebrity supporters. After learning more about him, she realized she also supported his stance on education. De Blasio, for his part, thanked Sarandon at a fundraiser this weekend at Sarandon’s SPiN Galactic New York Ping-Pong club, and he cited Themla & Louise and Bull Durham as two of his favorite films.
