How incredible does 69-year-old actress Susan Sarandon look? Absolutely, unquestionably stunning. Therefore it shouldn’t be a surprise to learn that L’Oreal just named the iconic film star as their newest beauty ambassador and the company’s official international spokesperson for their Age Perfect line.
According to L’Oreal Brand Global President Cyril Chapuy, the company was drawn to Sarandon not only for her beauty and acting chops, but also because of her strength and independence as a woman.
“Susan is a cinematic icon,” says Chapuy. “She is strong, charismatic, and talented, and has a compelling sense of self. Her outspoken activism, captivating film work and authentic charm continue to inspire women to be fearless and believe in their convictions. She is a real woman of worth inside and out.”
We wholeheartedly agree. Sadly, no word on whether Geena Davis is going to join her. But wouldn’t thank be terrific?
L’Oreal unveiled Saradon’s new role with the company with a series of candid Instagram shots that profile the actress:

Susan seems over the moon about her new gig, and said, “When L’Oréal Paris and [Brand Global President Cyril Chapuy] first approached me, I was so flattered. The brand has always been a leader in helping in the empowerment and development of women.”
“The very first time I heard ‘because I’m worth it,’ it definitely was a shift in the framing of why you should look good. It had to do with women becoming the master of their own lives and decisions. It’s an extremely powerful statement that has transcended time.”
We’d say L’Oreal made the perfect choice.
