Who knew British TV host Piers Morgan moonlights as a wardrobe consultant for funerals? When the Screen Actors Guild Awards aired recently, Piers was offended by the outfit Susan Sarandon chose to wear while presenting the “In Memoriam” segment honoring actors who passed away in the past year. He was so offended, in fact, that he took to Twitter to express his outrage! Thus was #cleavagegate born!
Susan, 69 and still one of the sexiest actresses in Hollywood, wasn’t about to take the Brit’s snit over her bountiful endowment lying down. After all, she won her Best Actress Oscar for playing a nun in “Dead Man Walking” — she didn’t actually take vows. Susan’s cups fairly runneth over with… um, snark when she responded with a still from one of her earlier movies, 1975 cult fave “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”
Piers, however, decided he would take her #cleavagegate jab lying down! He responded with an image of his head Photoshopped onto a muscular nude body draped in velvet and — for unknown reasons — sporting a Burger King medallion.
We think Susan went a bit easy on Piers, whose talk show, “Piers Morgan Live,” crashed and burned on CNN in 2014. After all, sultry Susan has virtually built a career out of being a bombshell sex symbol at every age, so she had plenty of ammunition for a protracted Twitter war. Just take a look at this shot from 1978’s “Pretty Baby”…
And then there was a steamy sex scene with a young James Spader in 1990’s “White Palace.”
Who could forget Susan squeezing lemon juice on herself to keep her skin supple and sexy in "Atlantic City" in 1980?
Susan’s fans got into the act and started supporting her by tweeting pictures of their own cleavage — male fans, as well as females! We don’t think Piers has anything to match this amazing red swimsuit pic of Susan, so we’re declaring this tempest in a D cup settled!
