Susan Sarandon has accused Piers Morgan of "milking" the outfit controversy that he has since dubbed "cleavagegate".
The actress wore a low-cut white blazer which showed her cleavage to the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards in Los Angeles earlier this month, where she appeared on stage to present an 'In Memoriam' segment which led off with a tribute to David Bowie.
Morgan expressed disdain for the outfit on Twitter, calling it "horribly inappropriate" and "very tacky" because Sarandon was appearing at the SAG Awards to pay tribute to entertainment industry figures who had passed away.
Sarandon then appeared to brush off his comments with a humorous "#throwbackthursday" post, which she made the "pinned tweet" at the top of her Twitter feed. Check it out below.

However, Sarandon has now responded to Morgan's criticism more directly during an appearance on The Late Show With Seth Meyers.
"Does he have a job? A real job? Why does he have so much time? He is doing something again today – he can't stop," Sarandon said. "I don't think his mother nursed him. I hate to say, he's milking this situation."
Sarandon's comments came after The Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik flashed her cleavage at Morgan on The Late Late Show as a show of support for her fellow actress.
"You know what? I identify as a feminist, I'm going to do it this way," Bialik said before showing her cleavage to Morgan.
