Hollywood couple oppose Bush war on Iraq
Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon have voiced their opposition to US plans for a war on Iraq.
They spoke at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe about their roles in a play about the September 11 attacks.
Sarandon said that she didn't think a military expansion of violence was the solution.
She said: "First you have to ask the right questions and we haven't formed the right questions on what's going on in the world right now.
"No, I don't think I would want to go to war against Iraq."
The actress said one of the positive results of the September 11 attacks was that it gave America something in common with other countries who have fallen prey to terrorism.
"Afterwards, I said to my kids: 'We've joined the rest of the world now'," she said.
"You're so lucky in Ireland, England and Spain. Everyone there already knows what it's like to have inexplicable terrorist violence."
The couple's play, The Guys, has been playing to packed audiences at the city's Sheraton Grand Hotel.
Robbins plays grieving fire captain Nick, who is struggling to come to terms with the loss of his colleagues in the Twin Towers tragedy.
