While in college, she met fellow student Chris Sarandon and the couple married on September 16, 1967. They divorced in 1979, but she retained the surname Sarandon as her stage name. She then had a relationship with Louis Malle, who directed her in Pretty Baby and Atlantic City. Sarandon had a relationship with musician David Bowie around the time they worked together on the film The Hunger (1983), which she describes as "a really interesting period." In the mid-1980s Sarandon dated Italian filmmaker, Franco Amurri, and she gave birth to their daughter, actress Eva Amurri, on March 15, 1985. From 1988 to 2009 Sarandon was in a relationship with actor Tim Robbins, whom she met while they were filming Bull Durham. They have two sons – Jack Henry (born May 15, 1989) and Miles Guthrie (born May 4, 1992). On March 1, 2014, the documentary Storied Streets, produced by Sarandon and directed by Jack Henry Robbins was released. The film deals with homelessness across the United States.
In 2006, Sarandon and ten relatives, including her then-partner, Tim Robbins, and her son, Miles, travelled to Wales to trace her family's Welsh genealogy. Their journey was documented by the BBC Wales programme, Coming Home: Susan Sarandon. Much of the same research and content was featured in the American version of Who Do You Think You Are?. She also received the "Ragusani nel mondo" prize in 2006; her Sicilian roots are in Ragusa, Italy.
Sarandon is the co-owner of New York table tennis club SPiN, and its Toronto branch SPiN Toronto.
Sarandon split with her long-time partner, Robbins. Following the dissolution of her relationship, she began a relationship with Jonathan Bricklin (born on May 13, 1977), son of Malcolm Bricklin. They operated the SPiN ping-pong lounges together and met on a road trip to Chile in early 2010. They have since broken up.
