  1. I hope you’re feeling better. This is another great batch Melanie.I think they’re being unfair to Piers Morgan here since his comment wasn’t about the age not sagginess of Susan Sarandon’s boobs but about the tackiness of having them on show during an In Memorium speech. It’s fair to say that males in the audience would have been distracted from the words while boobs were on display. If she chooses to flash them it’s her choice but it’s done as a statement even if just of fashion, perhaps that statement should be toned down out of respect for those mentioned in the speech. Easy enough to change back afterwards
