Scoop: Susan shocked by split with Tim

Like many people, we were shocked when we heard the news that seemingly rock-solid couple Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split up after two decades together. But nobody was as surprised as Susan herself.

“People were coming up to me in the street and saying, ‘I cried and cried when I heard,’” the actress told the U.K.’s Telegraph. “Well, I was sadder! I didn’t think it would ever happen, either.”

So what went wrong? The “Thelma and Louise” star said the romance simply ran out of steam. “You bring people into your life at certain times,” Susan said. “Maybe you have a relationship to have children, and you realize that it’s fulfilled after that point.”

As for speculation that the Oscar winner is dating her 31-year-old business partner, Jonathan Brickman (they own an NYC ping-pong bar together), she’s mum, but does refer to herself as a “serial monogamist.” And she’s also reported to have recently bragged that she “invented the word cougar.”

Parent Trap

At most elementary schools, the worst infraction parents can commit is forgetting to pack a snack in their kid’s lunch. But for those whose kids attend school with the Jolie-Pitt children, the biggest no-no is blabbing to the media.

On Monday, Maddox, Pax and Shiloh were all sighted starting classes in Budapest, Hungary, where mom Angelina Jolie is filming her directorial debut.

And according to an Us magazine source, parents and teachers at their school have been made to sign security agreements, promising that they will not speak to the press.

Violators (of whom, we presume, this anonymous source is the first) may be fined — or, in the case of parents, even see their innocent tykes suspended indefinitely.

 

Heidi’s Halloween

Heidi Klum’s Amazonian proportions are about to get a lot bigger. But that doesn’t mean the supermodel known as “The Body” plans to let herself go now that she’s hung up her Victoria’s Secret wings.

She’s just gearing up for her annual Halloween bash — and what promises to be her biggest costume ever, literally.

The “Project Runway” host’s planned getup is reportedly so over the top that when scouting party locations, she had ceiling and doorway measurements taken to ensure that she could actually get inside and move about freely. The nonrestrictive nightclub space eventually chosen was NYC hot spot Lavo.

“No one knows exactly what the costume is yet; Heidi won’t tell anyone. But it is over 8 feet tall and she had to find a location where the doorway would fit her walking in in full costume,” a source told E!

“I like to change things up,” Heidi said. After throwing the fete for two years in L.A., she said, “this year is back in New York and my costume is larger than life! I hope everyone will try to outdo me! The game is on!”
