Susan, who is in Australia to judge Sydney's Tropfest Film Festival, did not seem surprised when she was told about the scandal that saw Barnaby, 50, leave his wife of 24 years after impregnating his former year-old staffer. Speaking with The Sydney Morning Herald , the year-old actress said 'it just seems as if government these days is so full of reactionary hypocrites'. The actress went on to say that it seems men who 'are the most ring-wing seems to lead this other life'. Susan also rubbished Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's controversial ban on sex between ministers and their staff. Susan has a long history of activism on such issues as empowering women and, most recently, her negative opinion on former US presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
