Susan Sarandon bags life achievement award.
London, Nov 24 (ANI): American actress Susan Sarandon was presented with a top award at the Stockholm International Film Festival in Sweden last weekend.
The 63-year-old Oscar winning star was given the lifetime achievement prize for her contribution to the world of cinema.
Swedish actor Gustaf Hammarsten handed the 15pound bronze horse statuette to Sarandon.
"The roles Susan Sarandon has played often gain a life of their own beyond the films themselves," the Daily Express quoted Hammarsten, as saying.
"Reflection, seduction and rebellion animate her characters and seem to be the key tools in her actor's repertoire."
Sarandon addressed the audience after receiving the award.
She said: "I am very happy that I'm still working, that I'm able to get jobs when a lot of people that I started out with are no longer working. I still have a really good time, and as long as that continues I'll continue to do it." (ANI)
