Actress Susan Sarandon was spotted at the Georges Berges Gallery opening in New York on Thursday, June 11, with her much younger ex-boyfriend Jonathan Bricklin, Us Weekly reports.
The couple were seen together looking at art for nearly an hour.
“They seemed very much in love,” an onlooker tells Us. “There is a real bond between them. … She introduced him to me as her boyfriend.”
“Their relationship is pretty much the same as it always was, beyond the fact that they said they split up, they still hang out all the time and hook up,” a source tells Us.
Susan looked lovely in a floral black top for the outing, worn with ankle grazer trousers and a pair of black and pink Nike trainers.
Jonathan looked casual in a green checked shirt worn with grey trousers and Converse trainers as he kept close to his ex girlfriend.
The couple was also been spotted walking around the SoHo neighborhood with Bricklin’s arm around the actress on Sunday, June 7.
The 68-year-old actress started dating Bricklin, who is 31 years younger, after she and actor Tim Robbins split in 2009 after 23 years together.
Susan had previously said of their relationship: ‘We don’t live under the same roof. We’re not an ordinary couple.
“It’s the soul of a person that interests me. When you are in love, the question of age, sex, colour no longer hold any importance.”
The actress and and her much younger ex-beau, who met on a 2010 trip in Chile, co-own a chain of ping-pong lounges called SPiN.

Though Sarandon did not share many details about her relationship with Bricklin when they dated, she has said that their age difference was not an issue for her. “It’s the soul of the person that interests me,” she told Hello! Magazine last year. “When you are in love, the question of age, sex, color no longer hold any importance.”
After they broke up, Bricklin told the New York Post just how special the star is to him. “She’s someone I love more than anyone I’ve ever been with, and that won’t change,” he said.
Perhaps not, but maybe that love is now being renewed.
