Susan Sarandon Calls the Pope a Nazi at the Hamptons Film Festival
She also discusses Occupy Wall Street in an interview with Bob Balaban in Sag Harbor over the weekend.
Susan Sarandon slammed Pope Benedict XVI at The Hamptons Film Festival over the weekend.
Sarandon was interviewed by Bob Balaban at the Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor on Saturday. She said she sent the pope a copy of the anti death penalty book, Dead Man Walking, authored by Sister Helen Prejean. Sarandon starred in the 1995 big-screen adaptation.
"The last one," she said, "not this Nazi one we have now."
Balaban tried to dance around the comment, but Sarandon just made it again, Newsday reports. The audience also laughed.
Sarandon also discussed Occupy Wall Street and her run-ins with the New York police Department over the controversial Amadou Diallo case. (Diallo, an immigrant, was shot and killed by four plainclothes police in 1999, sparking outcry of brutality and racial profiling.)
