Susan Sarandon's son is cross-dresser

Susan Sarandon's son is a cross-dresser.

The 68-year-old actress has revealed she is proud of her son Miles Robbins, who "colours outside the lines" in terms of gender roles, and occasionally wears dresses with his pals.

She explained: "My son Miles is a musician and a DJ and sometimes when his band performs they all wear dresses, and he has long hair."

The 'Thelma & Louise' star continued to say she decided to raise her 23-year-old son in New York City in a bid to introduce him to a diverse community of people.

She said: "I wanted to raise my kids in New York because, as a privileged kid, I think you can become very isolated and at least if you're privileged, you should understand you're privileged, and not take it for granted."

Susan - who also has children Eva Amurri, 30, and Jack Henry Robbins, 26 - has long been a supporter of LGBTQ youth, and said she can understand why so many young people struggle with gender and sexuality because it is "difficult" to "survive" being a teenager.

She told People magazine: "As a mother, I know how difficult it is to survive the teenage years intact and the socialization process - if you step out of line, it's so difficult. And there are so many kids these days who are questioning, gay or transgender, who have a very tough time and it could be very dangerous for them."
