The Dead Man Walking star has two sons with longtime partner Tim Robbins: Jack, 20, and Miles, 17.
The actress, who lives with her family in New York, admits she cannot wait to send Miles off to college in another state so she can gain back her social freedom.
She says, "I do (like nesting) but I'm also very good at visiting them in foreign places! I'm so ready (for an empty house).
"The thing is, when you have kids you're such a captive to their school schedule so you get an invite or you wanna go someplace or something, you have to be back (by a certain time). I'm very hands on so I have to break that habit."
Sarandon is also mother to actress Eva Amurri, from her previous relationship with director Franco Amurri.
