Susan Sarandon recalls lesbian sex scene while honouring Catherine Deneuve

April 4, 2012 - New York

Susan Sarandon joked at an awards ceremony that she will never forget her on-screen sex scene with Catherine Deneuve in 'The Hunger'.

Deneuve and Sarandon have a sizzling lesbian sex scene in the 1983 vampire flick.

"I'm the only presenter to have actually slept with [her]," the New York Post quoted the actress as telling the audience at the Film Society of Lincoln Centre's tribute to the French icon Monday night.

Her quip was followed by a scene from the movie.

Noting Deneuve's well-publicized stand against the death penalty and for abortion rights, her actress daughter, Chiara Mastroianni, got a big laugh when she offered that "Rick Santorum would not be happy with my mom."

Martin Scorsese presented Deneuve, 68, with an award named for Charlie Chaplin.

"Catherine Deneuve seems to have been made for cinema, and cinema for her," he said.
