Sarandon takes on the role of another sexy starlet, Bette Davis, in Ryan Murphy's Feud, and spoke to ET about how the perception of women in Hollywood has changed since Davis was in the industry. "[The show] kind of asks the questions very subtly about Hollywood today and has the fate of women evolved that much," she explained. "As an aging actress, are things any different for women over a certain age?"
The Fox series seeks to recount the real-life feud between Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Davis. "Joan Crawford was a great beauty where Bette Davis was more of a character actor. So aging for her and changing -- as you can see by what she did to herself in Baby Jane -- was different than Joan Crawford's because Joan Crawford was just the most gorgeous woman ever," Sarandon noted. "At a certain point, [Davis] just didn't want to be out in public any longer."
The actress admitted that portraying Davis made her think about her own career. "That's kind of interesting. When do you stop? Do you stop? Or are you just so hooked on this process that you want to keep doing it?" she pondered. "I'm definitely getting up there [in age] so maybe it made me think a little about that, but I can't imagine me tiring at all. I'm still having so much fun!"
