She's so worth it! Susan Sarandon may have a bevy of awards and accolades, but her newest gig as L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador, announced on Friday, January 8, is a particularly meaningful one.
“When L’Oréal Paris and [Brand Global President Cyril Chapuy] first approached me, I was so flattered," the Tammy actress shared in a statement. "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."
It’s also a message that speaks to her heart. “I look forward to being older, when what you look like becomes less and less an issue and what you are is the point,” she said.
The Oscar winner, who has three children — Eva, 30, Miles, 23, and Jack Henry, 26 — added, "Beauty comes from the inside; it’s a state of mind. I’m proud to be a part of their message and to represent the L’Oréal Paris women."
And Chapuy is beyond proud to have her as a part of the team. "Susan is a cinematic icon," he said in a statement. "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 are honored to have Susan as a new Lorealista."
In her new role as an international spokeswoman, Sarandon will be the face of Age Perfect skincare and hair color.
The Thelma & Louise actress joins the impressive roster of L'Oréal Paris women, including Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Eva Longoria, Jane Fonda, Naomi Watts, Doutzen Kroes and Karlie Kloss.
