As announced back in May, Sandy is really attached to headline the film based on Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book Tupperware Unsealed, a biopic on Brownie Wise, the marketing pioneer who created the Tupperware home party strategy that made the brand a household name and opened new professional avenues for women. Sony Pictures announced that Tate Taylor, director of The Help, will write and direct it.
Coming Soon – Though Brownie Wise is frequently remembered as the idealized 1950s housewife, she was in fact a groundbreaking businesswoman who built a social network through which other women could earn their own money and independence. The first woman ever featured on the cover of Business Week, Wise became a popular and famous figure during her time as a marketing executive for Tupperware. However, her own clashes with company founder Earl Tupper, and the circumstances surrounding her exit from the company, underscored the limits of the liberation movement she personified.
“As a writer-director, Tate has the rare and delicate ability to capture both the romanticism and restrictions of a time and place,” says Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio. “In this case 1950’s suburban America. His characters are both immediately recognizable while also uniquely iconic. Such was the magic of Brownie Wise. There is no one better than Sandy to play Brownie — they share a fierce bravery and independent spirit.”
“Sandy and I have been trying to work together for years,” adds Taylor. “Finally, I’m very excited to put Tupperware in her hands. This is a collaborative dream come true.”
The film was packaged by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films and Television, who brought the project to the studio. Joining them as producers are Tom Shelly of Steele Mill Productions and Taylor through his Wyolah Films. John Norris and Alex Young will serve as executive producers. Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio.

Sandra Bullock attended yesterday the 2014 Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards in Culver City, California. She received the ‘Decade of Hotness’ award and was presented by her former co-stars Keanu Reeves, Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Grant. She was beautiful wearing a pink Roland Mouret dress and black Saint Laurent shoes.
Bullock’s acceptance speech was full of jokes:
I feel like I’m at my funeral. Decade of Hotness…My question was what decade? I have several under my belt. It should really be Decade of Hot Mess. That I can own and I do that well and I’m still convinced I’m up here because someone dropped out and they needed someone quickly and we know I’m home on Saturdays.
I’d like to thank the Guys Choice Awards for this—the horns. How many people hold this up and say, ‘I’m so horny!’ I’d like to thank you for this honor. This is an amazing slingshot for a 49-year-old. I’d like to thank every hairstylist and makeup artist for creating the illusion because I didn’t look like this a couple hours ago…I’m just one of the luckiest girls I know and three of the people I’m just so crazy about are right next to me.
The 2014 Guys’ Choice Awards will premiere on Spike TV on Wednesday, June 11, at 9 p.m. Check in our gallery over 90 HQ pictures from the event:

I have a few pictures added, Sandy skipped the red carpet but was beautiful in a Vionnet gown, Jimmy Choo shoes, a Charlotte Olympia clutch, and Lorraine Schwartz earrings.
The last issue of People Magazine brings a very nice article about Sandy and Warren Easton, the public charter high school in New Orleans that she adopted after the Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Her donations have helped rebuild the campus, fund scholarships for graduates, pay for athletic equipment and band uniforms and open a health clinic.
No one ever talks about the good. If you are ever wondering about how good life is and can be, you can come to Warren Easton. These kids have been working a couple of jobs, some come from hard places, but every time they walk under that roof, they know they’re cared for, they’re admired for what they can bring to the table.
A lovely picture illustrate the article, and you can find both in our gallery:
