Sarandon: I'm used to producing

Susan Sarandon has revealed being a mum has helped her when producing films.

The Thelma And Louise star - who has three grown up children - has production credits on Moonlight Mile, Stepmom and The Last Of The Cowboys.

She told The Guardian: "As a woman producing a family I'm used to producing, because you have to plan ahead and manage things.

"Producing a film is not that difficult; getting it sold and distributed is where there are the most problems. I come from a large family, I'm the oldest of nine children, so it seems totally understandable for me to live in chaos."

The actress also said she preferred playing the bad girl in movies.

"You get to say and do things that you never in a million years would do. And very often the bad guys are written just so much better than the good guys.

"If you look at Sister Helen in Dead Man Walking I just walk around saying constantly 'Let us pray' and 'I'm sorry' - there's so much more to play when someone is evil."
