Thieves raid Susan Sarandon's home

Los Angeles - Susan Sarandon's home was burgled at the weekend.

Thieves reportedly broke into the Thelma & Louise star's Manhattan apartment on Saturday night and stole a laptop computer, a camera, items of jewellery and some documents from the property, sources told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column.

According to reports, Susan's 22-year-old son Miles - her youngest child with ex-partner Tim Robbins - left the apartment on West 15th Street at around 8pm and returned eight hours later to find the property in disarray.

It is believed the burglar used a ladder to hop from a roof next door to the top of the 'Dead Man Walking' actress' nine-storey apartment building before entering her lower-floor property through an empty terrace door.

Susan - who had around $100 000 of jewellery in the property - was believed to be out of town at the weekend and was told about the break-in by a neighbour.

Meanwhile, the 67-year-old star recently impressed Time Out New York staff during her one-issue stint as guest editor-in-chief.

Susan joined senior staff on the publication for a brainstorming session to discuss covering an issue important to her, homelessness in New York.

When talk turned to Richard Gere's forthcoming movie on the subject, Time Out of Mind, the Lovely Bones star was quick to act.

Editor-in-Chief Terri White told the New York Daily News newspaper's Confidenti@l column: "She said, 'I'll just text him and see if I can interview him for the issue.'

"So she just texted him in the room in front of everybody, which was kind of awesome unto itself, and then her people called me a few days later and said, 'Susan interviewed Richard.'

"It's truly the power of having friends like that. And being Susan Sarandon."
