Parade Magazine has on this Sunday issue an adorable interview with Sandy and Melissa, for the release of ‘The Heat’. Check some highlights:
On working together:
Sandra: “I’ve always wanted to do a female buddy film, the kind the guys get to do. This didn’t have anything to do with getting a guy, and it didn’t involve shoe shopping…I’d seen Bridesmaids, and I said, ‘If Melissa McCarthy wants to work with me…’ The first week I was like, ‘What is she doing? That’s not in the script.’ I was the lone actor, jack-of-one-trade, in a room full of improv actors and stand-up comedians. I mean, you should just listen to the stuff that comes out of her mouth.”
Melissa (to Sandra): “Before I knew you—don’t listen, I don’t want you to get cocky—I was asked in an interview who I thought was funny, and I said you…I love to watch someone who just goes for it and isn’t worried about whether it’s silly or awkward or unflattering.”
On what they have in common:
Sandra: “Having kids connected us on a deeper level. And the things we’re obsessed with outside of being a mom are the same, too: construction and house renovation…. We’re kindred spirits in that world. If we had a beer den, with Barcaloungers—but our version of that—it’d be great.”
Melissa: “There’d be fabric swatches everywhere. And reclaimed wood.”
On whether they worry about being good or bad moms:
Sandra: “Every single second of every single day…I don’t know if I feel like a bad mom, but at the end of the day I’m always plagued with, did I do enough? Should I go in a different direction? But I also know that my entire life revolves around Louis.”
Melissa: “It plagues me. I feel intensely guilty for working…You have to be able to provide for your kids. But I feel like it’s a weird modern phenomenon that you always feel guilty for it.”
On the problems created by fame and paparazzi…and L.A.:
Sandra: ”We’re adults, and we’re fair game—not that I like being photographed going in and out of school in my sweatpants. But I instinctively throw things over Louis’s head….He doesn’t like [the paparazzi]. He gives them the stink-eye, and they’re like, ‘That’s such an angry kid,’ but I look at them and say, ‘Only when you guys are around’…I don’t raise Louis in Hollywood. I raise him in my world. To me the good thing about living in L.A. is diversity in lifestyle choices, color, and religion. I want Louis to look around and see every color under the sun. I also have the luxury of splitting my time between L.A. and Austin.”
Melissa: ”Strangers shouldn’t be allowed to take a picture of your child and sell it for profit. They think, ‘We’re putting out a product,’ but you’re putting out a child….Ben and I have absolutely nothing to do with the Hollywood that’s all actors and the Sunset Strip. We crave talking to people who do different things and are passionate about it. We have some of the most rock-solid, lovely friends in the world.”
I added scans of F*** Magazine and US Weekly, both from May, talking about ‘The Heat‘. Check it:
The Heat is featured on April 19th issue of Entertainment Weekly and thanks to my friend Ali we have now scans up in the gallery.
Sandy is cover of “Tu Style” May 22 issue, and my friend Claudia was nice enough to get it scanned for us.
Despite her high-profile divorce drama, Sandra Bullock has left her baggage behind and is happier than ever.
According to a new People magazine profile, the new mom is back to work on two dramas Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and Gravity, but still putting her son toddler Louis first. “Her No. 1 priority is her son. No. 2 is work,” a source tells the mag.
Stephen Daldry, who is directing Bullock in Extremely Loud, says of the actress, “She was very keen to get back to work. She threw herself in with her usual enthusiasm and energy, and she was very relaxed. She had little Louis with her, and it was a very familial environment on set.”
And even though the last year has apparently been tumultuous for Bullock’s philandering ex-husband, Jesse James the Oscar winner seems to have moved on. “She has so much to offer,” a source tells People. “She has left the baggage of the last year behind, and she’s not carrying it with her. She is ready for the next chapter of her life.”
“She amazes me and everyone else with how she is able to keep her sunny — and funny — ways about her,” a source says. “I’m sure she gets angry, but she doesn’t stay in that place.”

Sandra Bullock wasn’t buying the hype. Speaking to EW last fall, weeks before the opening of a little heart-warmer of a movie called The Blind Side, the actress – who had reemerged earlier that year from a two-year hiatus with her biggest hit ever, the romantic comedy The Proposal – predicted that her newly reinvigorated career would soon cool down again. She brushed off The Proposal’s success as a cosmic fluke: “I don’t pump my fist in the air. I don’t want anything karmically crashing down on me.” She dismissed the idea that she might score an Oscar nomination for The Blind Side: “The stuff that I migrate to isn’t the stuff that wins awards.” And she vowed that she would be off the public’s radar again in no time, holed up at home, with Hollywood at a comfortable distance. “Trust me, people are going to be like ‘Get her away,’” she said. “And I will go away. I’ll be quiet again after this.”
