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.”
“The Heat” has all the elements you’d expect from a buddy cop movie — the oil-and-water partnership, the car chases, the wisecracks — and a few you wouldn’t — for instance, a scene involving Spanx.
Faithfully conforming to the macho genre made famous by movies such as “Bad Boys” and “Lethal Weapon,” “The Heat” is also — curiously — summer’s only studio film built around female leads: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
“If someone asks what you wanna do and you don’t really wanna work, you pick the most farfetched thing,” Bullock said. “This was it, a pairing where everyone was equal and you had these storylines that weren’t girly…. It had depth and humor and balls and action. It was just something I saw the boys getting to do.”
Sandra will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight to promote “The Heat”. Be sure to tune in and check your local listings for the time. She will also make an appearance on other talk/morning shows the coming days, be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it.
