Susan Sarandon to star in PSA campaign for GLAAD
April 08 2004 12:00 AM ET
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation announced Tuesday that Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon will appear in a new advertising campaign for the advocacy group. The public service announcement featuring Sarandon is scheduled to premiere at the April 12 GLAAD Media Awards in New York City before being released to network and cable television. The spot, titled "Flower," shows Sarandon sitting on a stool surrounded by flowers. She says, "He loves me. He loves me not. He loves me. Do you care if he loves me? Probably not. I mean, who I love doesn't really affect you, right? But what if I was gay?" Plucking petals off a flower, she asks, "Does 'She loves me' affect you any more than 'He loves me'? My guess is, 'Not.'" The ad ends with the tagline for GLAAD's ad campaign, "Love is love is love."
