Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon Thursday voiced her support for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders's run for the Presidency after spending the last 24 hours aiding the candidate's campaign in Iowa.
Sarandon cited Sanders's opposition to the Iraq war as the main reason he would be receiving her vote.
"Well Bernie Sanders consistently has represented everything that I'm interested in, that I care about," Sarandon said on CNN from Mason City. "He wants change, he doesn't want business as usual. And quite frankly, you know, the most important foreign affairs move that have happened in my lifetime, which was the vote to go into Iraq, she failed me.

"And I feel that wasn't just a mistake; that was a disaster," Sarandon continued. "When you see what Bernie did at that time, which was so brave and so clear on the floor when he stood up and made that speech. If you Google that you'll see why I really believe that I need somebody with judgment and not just experience."
Sarandon added she believed it would be patronizing to vote for front-runner Hillary Clinton just because she is a woman.
"Well I think it's very patronizing to think that women vote for any woman that gets up there," Sarandon said. "I wouldn't have, you know, I mean, I love Elizabeth Warren for instance. She's closer to what I feel needs to happen in this country. But [Former British Prime Minister Margaret] Thatcher was a woman and I wouldn't be proud of that. I think that's very patronizing to women to think we all just follow our genitalia to candidates."
