Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone.

The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan.

One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government.

'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'I’ve had my phone tapped.'

She added: 'I was denied a security clearance to go to the White House and I don’t know why.' She asked the audience member jokingly: 'Do you know why?'




Actors in film about fleeing Cuba arrive in U.S. for film festival... and disappear (they fled Cuba)

Sarandon said she knew she was being watched by the government as she had twice seen a file held on her through Freedom of Information requests, the Daily Beast reported.

Moore, who directed Fahrenheit 9/11 and Capitalism: A Love Story, said he would not be surprised if 'somebody, somewhere' has subjected him to surveillance. 'As it should be,' he laughed.

PBS on Richard Nixon: (http://www.pbs.org/wnet/amerpres/presidents/pres37/pres37_intro.html)

''During his so-called "imperial presidency," Nixon sought the kingly powers expressly withheld from the high office: the power to declare war, the power of the purse, and the power of immunity from legislative oversight.''

So Im guessing the media embraces this behavior now.

Sarandon is a typical narcissistic moonbat. She assumes that she is worth putting under surveillance because the star of the Rocky Horror Picture Show is a threat to our political system. :rolleyes:

Correct. She puts herself in the middle. Every time. Michael Moore does the same thing.

Judging by her box office, nobody is watching Susan Sarandon.
