Long-winded Italian queries impress actress Sarandon

Susan Sarandon was impressed when an Italian journalist launched into a long-winded question during a news conference at the Venice Film Festival.

"You guys have the longest questions," she quipped Sunday after the reporter finished asking the question about her relationship with death.

Questions by Italian reporters often last longer than the answer they elicit and sometimes shape up more like political or social statements.

"It's so different from the States where they just want to know who you're sleeping with," said Sarandon, who was at the festival to promote her new film, "Elizabethtown," in which she plays a new widow trying to find herself.
