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.“
NY Post: It’s been a banner year for PopWrap’s beloved Sandra Bullock. She kicked things off in June with “The Proposal,” which not only gave her the best opening weekend of her career ($33.6 million) but went on to become her highest grossing film ever ($164 million).
Then after the summer speed bump that was “All About Steve,” she returned two weeks ago with “The Blind Side.” In its opening weekend, the football flick made $34 million, besting the record she set only five months earlier. It’s already made $102 million and is poised to unseat her Ryan Reynolds co-starring rom-com as the most lucrative movie of Sandra’s career! Oh, and there’s serious awards talk for her performance.
The first accolade she’s set to receive is the coveted American Riviera Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this February. The prestigious honor has previously gone to Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Forrest Whitaker, Mickey Rourke and Tommy Lee Jones. Sandy is one of the rare women to receive the award.
“Bullock’s career-capping performance in ‘The Blind Side’ encompasses everything we have loved about her since the early ’90s, from the deft physical comedy in ‘While You Were Sleeping,’ to the mettle of her role in the Academy Award-winning ‘Crash,’” said Roger Durling, the festival’s director. “What a most perfect time to salute this enduring movie star’s lengthy career.”
Hell to the yeah!
The comedy All About Steve is the hilarious tale of a woman who, after falling hard for a guy, thinks they’re an item. Unfortunately, as far as Steve is concerned, she’s just a crazy stalker that he can’t seem to get away from.
Mary Horowitz (Sandra Bullock) is a cruciverbalist, or crossword puzzle constructor, for a local newspaper. Her brain is full of an endless stream of arcane information, which she is happy to share with anyone she comes across, whether they are actually interested or not. Nothing in Mary’s life is typical, from the fact that she lives with her eccentric parents, to her bright red go-go boots, to her conclusion that handsome cable-news cameraman Steve (Bradley Cooper) is “the one,” after only one blind date. Once she decides to pursue Steve relentlessly, as he crisscrosses the country covering breaking news stories with reporter Hartman Hughes (Thomas Haden Church) and their producer (Ken Jeong), Steve becomes increasingly unhinged, before eventually learning to truly appreciate Mary for all of her uniqueness.
At the film’s press day, co-stars Sandra Bullock, Bradley Cooper, Thomas Haden Church and Ken Jeong told IESB about making this quirky, off-beat comedy, and joked about the possibility of teaming up with Sandra for The Hangover 2.continue reading »
