We doubt that Ryan Reynolds was actually frightened by the sight of a naked Sandra Bullock charging at him in The Proposal, but the actress insists that she would never attempt to strip in a film for the sake of sexiness.
“There’s nothing funnier than two naked bodies slapping together,” Bullock observed on the latest episode of The Graham Norton Show, airing July 11 on BBC America (or tonight, if you get BBC One).
“There’s nothing sexy about it at all—it’s funny. It’s not like your hug,” the ever-candid actress added, turning to fellow guest Nick Frost (who is rather cuddly). “It’s not intimate.”
But Bullock looked so great in The Proposal, Norton said—though he did admit that he was paying more attention to her costar’s naked body at the time.
“No, I don’t do naked for sexy,” the actress insisted. “Naked only works for me in the funny.”
Thursday morning on Today, Sandy sat with Matt Lauer to promote Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. She admitted that she doesn’t have quite the large part that some would expect. “I’m actually in there for about 24 minutes,” said Bullock. “There might be more, but I don’t know how many moments like this there will be. With stories like this. With directors and casts like this … you can’t say no to that.”
With the next release of “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” Sandy will be appearing in some TV Shows. Set your DVDR’s:
December 15th – Today Show
December 19th – Jay Leno Show
Much has been made about Oscar winner Sandra Bullock’s ties to the college town of Austin, Texas, where the star has retreated to avoid the paparazzi’s glare since her divorce from Jesse James. But on Tuesday (August 31), Bullock appeared on the “Today” show to discuss her love for New Orleans, where she has found another home.
Bullock, in her first televised interview since her split with James, told host Matt Lauer that the Big Easy has always been a comfortable place for her, somewhere she has gone often to visit, ring in the new year and most recently, the place where she finalized her adoption of son Louis.
But the reason she was there this week was to celebrate the successful rebuilding of the Warren Easton Charter High School, which suffered more than $4 million in damage five years ago this week during Hurricane Katrina. She sat next to Arthur Hardy, a New Orleans Mardi Gras expert and Easton board member, who said he laughed when Bullock called with an offer to help help, thinking someone was pulling his leg.
“She found us … [and] called me on a Sunday afternoon,” he said, laughing.
“I like to cold-call people, people who I think are outstanding community members … how you doin’?” Bullock joked.
