I can''t believe Susan Sarandon is doing housewife-in-kitchen milk commercials

It can't be because she feels that passionate about milk (like, say, the way Jamie Lee swears by Activia). It certainly wasn't because the material was brilliant (Ellen - Cover Girl/Amex), could be used as a disguised audition (Gwyneth), gives her percentage points (Liz Taylor) or has high glamour quotient (Latifah, Halle, Drew). And - when it comes to bad material - how much money is an offer you can't refuse? Many stars did the "Got Milk?" campaign but that was a pretty smart, kind of artful campaign.%0D %0D And she's not some out-of-work sitcom actress twirling around a tub of fake butter. %0D %0D It's Susan Fucking Sarandon, once A-list movie star, Academy Award winner, and perennial cult legend.%0D %0D It's sad, and I don't mean that in a snide way. There are just certain people that shouldn't have to peddle products with a C-script. If things are bad (and they are, even for the rich and famous), I think I'd rather she sold some of her property or did voiceovers. %0D %0D But hey, I'm sitting home unemployed, avoiding some options because either I'm lazy or they are not convenient for my 50-year-old ass and what's left of its professional life, so who am I to judge, I guess.%0D %0D What do you think? Any other stars who shouldn't have gone by way of humdrum advertising?
