Susan Sarandon is delighted that her actress daughter stripped a role in Showtime’s raunchy primetime drama Californication. In fact, she actually encouraged her to take the part. Mom insists she had no qualms about the 24 year old getting naked in front of the camera because she knew her daughter would enjoy herself.
Eva Amurri, Susan daughter with Italian director Franco Amurri, played Jackie, a woman who studied during the day and worked as a stripper by night, on Sunday’s episode of the hit series, which features David Duchovny.
“I think if she were playing something that was going to be really hard for her psychologically or damaging, I’d be more concerned, but she had a really good time with the sex thing,” Susan, now 60, told The New York Daily News on Sunday.
“She plays a woman who, as far as I can tell, is really in charge of her life and is not a victim. So it sounded to me like it would be a blast. I’ve already seen little bits and pieces of some of the nudity and she looks beautiful.”
