Thelma and Louise star Susan recently admitted she had a relationship with David Bowie 30 years ago.

“He’s worth idolizing,” she told The Daily Beast. “He’s extraordinary. That was a really interesting period... Bowie’s just a really interesting person and so bright. He’s a talent, and a painter and…he’s great.”

The rock star appeared with her in 1983 vampire film The Hunger and they are thought to have dated around that time. While David is married to model Iman, Susan split from longtime partner Tim Robbins in 2009 and is currently dating her 36-year-old business partner Jonathan Bricklin.
