The Proposal (out June 19) not only marks Sandra Bullock’s first romantic comedy in nearly five years. It also is the first time the actress, 44, had to shoot a nude scene.
“Sadly, my first and last nude scene got laughs, so I had to be very secure with that,” she said Sunday at the film’s press junket. “It was all about choreography. I mean, literally when you read it on the page, you saw it, and then you realized, ‘OK, there is no way to shoot this unless you are buck naked!’ Then I went, ‘Go to the gym, cut out the carbs!”
The scene — which involves a naked run-in scene with costar Ryan Reynolds — took three days to film and over a dozen takes.
“I’m glad it made people laugh,” she said. “Shooting it was odd. There are things stuck to areas that generally you don’t have things [stuck to]. I mean, you have things covering [your body], but not stuck to it. And then they got unstuck, and oddly we didn’t care because we were so tired.”
Added Reynolds, “Yeah, at that point, shame is gone completely. The weirdest part is calling your mom nude on set: ‘Hey, just checking in!'”
The Proposal is Bullock’s first romantic comedy since 2005’s Miss Congeniality 2: Armed & Fabulous.
“I stopped doing them,” she said. “They are terrible, they are bad. They are not funny, so they shouldn’t be a romantic comedy and most of the time they are not romantic. So they shouldn’t be called a romantic comedy. They should be called that other kind of film.”
She said she refuses to call The Proposal a romantic comedy.
“It reminds me of the films from like the ’30s and ’40s where there was a landscape and a story and drama was allowed to be in there,” she said. “You can’t have good comedy without drama in it. And they don’t generally write well for women in romantic comedies.”
“I love my comedy too much to bastardize it with bad romantic comedy,” she went on. “So I was like, ‘I’m going to find another way to work and do it in a way that I love.’ So I’m not calling this a romantic comedy.”
“She was very down to earth, very pleasant, very warm and charming,” said Simpson.
Simpson said Tuohy accompanied Bullock to the school.
Tuohy is a well to do, conservative woman who took in the homeless Oher. Oher had a tough childhood. His father was murdered when he was a child and his mother was addicted to crack cocaine.
After attending a dozen Memphis schools, Oher made his way to Briarcrest. There he excelled at football and became a top college prospect. The Tuohy family took him in and helped him catch up academically.
“I told Sandra Bullock she better get ready and do her homework because Leigh Anne Tuohy has a lot of energy and is a very exciting person,” said Simpson.
Oher went on to play football at Ole Miss on a scholarship. At six foot six and more than 300 pounds, the offensive lineman is considered by many to be a potential top pick in the NFL draft.
Sandra Bullock has signed on to star in a football movie based on the real-life story of an underprivileged teen who goes on to become one of the nation’s most sought after players.
In ‘Blindside,’ Bullock will play the woman whose well-to-do family takes in football player Michael Oher, who was escaping a past of foster homes and being on the streets, according to Variety. Oher is widely expected to be a top pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
The film — based on the book The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game,” by Michael Lewis — is being produced by ‘Marley & Me”s Gil Netter for Warner Bros.-based Alcon Entertainment, Variety says.
