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
Ryan Reynolds is the cover boy for the most recent issue of Details magazine, and Sandy is quoted on his interview:
Sandra Bullock says her longtime friend and costar has a complexity beyond the friendly face that draws an audience in: “It makes you want to watch more of him to figure it out. As his friend, any dark secrets that I may or may not know are forever safe with me. Unless he doesn’t do something I want him to do, like babysitting. When that day comes, I’ll be sure to hold a press conference.” The rest of his success she credits to his comic timing, height, and Canadian-ness. “He constantly talks of the healing powers of maple syrup,” Bullock says. “I don’t know if that’s a Canadian trait, but it’s always uncomfortable when it comes up.“
Sandra Bullock has received some heartwarming news from a New Orleans high school that the Oscar winner “adopted” back in 2007.
In a history-making moment Tuesday, every single student in Warren Easton Charter High School’s 220-member senior class graduated, according to a statement from Bullock’s rep.
I cannot express how proud I am of the 2011 graduating class at Warren Easton. To achieve a 100 percent graduation rate just goes to show that the recipe for success lies under that roof. People who believe, people who love and support, and people who don’t take no for an answer. How lucky am I to be a very small part of this great school!
Bullock got involved with the institution, the oldest public high school in Louisiana, following Hurricane Katrina and has contributed “hundreds of thousands of dollars” for a new on-campus health clinic, college scholarships, band uniforms and the renovation of the auditorium, her rep says.
In addition to the impressive graduation rate, Warren Easton’s seniors have also been offered a total of almost $5 million in scholarship money from 15 different colleges and universities.

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds spent New Year’s Eve celebrating together in Austin, Texas – along with a posse of other pals.
“A group of old friends that included Ryan and Sandra spent New Year’s together at Sandra’s restaurant Bess Bistro,” her rep tells PEOPLE. “They all had a great time ringing in the New Year as they have in the past … as nothing more than friends.”
Despite speculation, a source close to Reynolds, 34, echoes the sentiment that there’s nothing romantic in real life between the on-screen lovebirds, who starred in The Proposal together.
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson, 26, Reynolds’s soon-to-be ex-wife, dined at the same restaurant on Dec. 28 with her pal Drew Barrymore.
Bullock, who’s friendly with both Reynolds and Johansson from their days as a couple, stopped by the table to say hello to her fellow actresses during their meal, according to an observer.
