Notes

"She's so beautiful and has this incredible body and way of holding herself, and she threw it all away and became this kind of gangly, whining, hysterical comic relief,"---Susan Sarandon talking about her daughter Eva in "Banger Sisters" Evening Times January 30, 2003

"I think in the beginning she was very cautious if only because this business involves a lot of rejection. It's really easy to get hurt by it. But I think she understands that that does not easily hurt me and she is behind me 100 per cent. She understands that this is what I want to do and she supports it.---Eva on whether her mother supports her acting to Bonnie Laufer of Tribute

In 2003, was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People

"My mom is cool. Of course you go through these periods like, 'Don't even walk near me.' You're never anonymous (when we go out) and when you want private time with your parents, you can't get it. You have to share them with other people. The only time I get upset, these fans . . . admire her so much, but I don't like it when people take photographs, especially without asking. Sometimes you see them in the tabloids. I guess it's the price you have to pay."---Eva on her mother Susan Sarandon The Boston Herald September 20, 2002
