Some notable audience members on the first day of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) are not fans of a possible Hillary Clinton presidency—especially Susan Sarandon.
The many cameras at the DNC in Philadelphia on July 25 panned several times over the actress who looked thoroughly unimpressed, which she later confirmed via Twitter.
When journalist Ian McKenna uploaded a GIF to Twitter with a caption that read:”Susan Sarandon is literally having the worst time at the #DemConvention,” the Oscar winning actress confirmed his assessment.

“Accurate,” Sarandon retweeted.

Sarandon has been a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders, hailing his efforts during an April interview with ABC’s “The View.”
“That’s why I’m so excited because there’s never been a candidate, nor will there ever be a candidate in my lifetime, who hasn’t taken money from Wall Street, from super PACs, from Monsanto, from fracking, and I want someone with that moral commitment to people,” Sarandon said.
In the same interview, the 69-year-old admitted to feeling pressured to vote for Hillary Clinton during the New York April primaries because she is a woman.
“There certainly was pressure. There’s been so many statements and shaming,” she said. “Don’t get me wrong, the idea of a woman president I know will happen, and I hope someday it can be the daughter of someone who’s not rich, who’s not married to someone who was a president, that can happen in this country.”
Sarandon also alluded to closeted Sanders supporters, stating some super delegates wish they had supported Sanders in the beginning stages of his campaign.
However, newly released leaked emails reveal the Democratic National Committee to have favored Clinton over Sanders.
