The January issue of Empire Magazine has 2 pages on their ‘Oscar Special’ featuring Gravity, and you can find scans up in the gallery:
The two actors were in fact very rarely together on stage, given Cuaro?n’s strictly pre-vized, physically restrictive, virtual- environment approach. “In some instances there was no George!” the director reveals — even when on screen Ryan was with his Matt Kowalski. “But we tried to adapt the technology for them to be together, [especially when] it was about eyes, them looking at each other. But physically there is only so far you can move bodies before they feel uncomfortable and you feel the strain and the gravity. We’d say, ‘Well you have to understand, Sandra, that George’s face is not going to be here, it’s going to be here.’ Even in the moments they were together there was all this kind of abstraction. What we did was rehearse the chemistry first so they got it and were just trying to replicate it through the whole thing.”
So I have up scans with the AMAZING photoshoot Sandy did to EW’s Entertainers of the Year issue, and remembering that EW issue from December 2009 I definitely can say EW has my favorite Sandy photoshoots so far. The interview is a must-read as well, so a huge thanks goes to my friend Claudia for sending in scans. Check it:
Sandra is on the cover of EW Entertainers of the Year issue, on stands tomorrow, November 26.
And EW’s Entertainer of the Year is…Sandra Bullock!
She is the gift that keeps on giving. First the 49-year-old Oscar winner teamed up with the uproarious Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig’s winning buddy cop comedy The Heat. Then, as Dr. Ryan Stone in Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, Bullock gives an emotionally naked performance that will likely earn her an Oscar nomination. Bullock’s tremendous talent and range — to say nothing of the woman’s trademark grace and good humor in good times and bad — is what earned her the top spot on our annual list of the most exciting performers in 2013.
Bullock’s one-two punch demanded a fair amount of give and take from the actor. When she signed on to The Heat Bullock didn’t expect to be playing straight man to McCarthy’s firehose-blast of a performance. “Once I realized that that drove the film I had to step back,” she says. “Otherwise I would’ve been fighting for something that would’ve ended up on the cutting room floor. It wasn’t what I was hoping for but the end result was the success of the film and people liking us together.” While Bullock nixes any talk of The Heat 2, she says she’s keen for another project with her fast friend McCarthy. (Hollywood, get on this!)
Sandra Bullock shows off her gorgeous self on the cover of Vogue‘s October 2013 issue, on newsstands September 24.
On her infamous divorce from Jesse James: “We’re all where we’re supposed to be. I am exactly where I want to be now. You can’t go backward. I’m not going backward. I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything. If you end up in a place where you can look back and go, ‘It happened, but I’m so lucky to be sitting where I am sitting.’”
On adopting her son Louis: “I wanted to get up there and say, ‘Guess what?!’ Work was my life before… Now I have no reason to leave home.”
On wanting more kids: “If all of a sudden someone said, ‘You have five more kids,’ I’d be totally OK with it. I’m having such an amazing time. Whatever comes our way, we handle as a family. It’s not just me anymore.”
Sandra and Melissa McCarthy are gracing the cover of tomorrow’s Parade Magazine. The cover and two additional outtakes are added in our gallery. You can read the entire interview below/inside.
The actresses talk comedy, kids, and the lasting bond they formed on the set of their new movie, The Heat.
Hollywood friendship: It can’t be real, right? Nah, it’s all just air-kissing and “Love your work” and “Let’s do lunch.” At least, that’s what you might expect—until you spend some time with Sandra Bullock, 48, and Melissa McCarthy, 42. Since they first met, on the riotous buddy-cop comedy The Heat (in theaters June 28), the costars have developed the kind of camaraderie that even Oscar and Emmy winners can’t fake. They finish each other’s sentences, make detailed, thoughtful observations about each other’s kids, and rib each other mercilessly.
