In a new interview at the Cannes Film Festival, Susan Sarandon has revealed that she's considering a career behind the camera after she retires from acting... directing female-friendly pornography.

"I have threatened, in my 80s, to direct porn," the actress revealed to the press while at an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of Thelma and Louise.

Sarandon admitted that, at this point, she "hasn't watched enough to know what the problems are" within the industry, reports The Times.

She continued: "Most pornography is brutal and doesn’t look pleasurable from a female point of view. So I’ve been saying that when I no longer want to act, I want to do that."

Sarandon told the room that she is interested in exploring the emotional drive of the characters in pornography and “what the scene is supposed to tell you about these people”.

"A lot of people know what’s in the middle," she said. "But what makes a sex act really interesting is how that first touch happens, how that first kiss comes."
