Scans have been added to the gallery from the March issue of Total Film.
Hello! My name is Ali and I am going to be helping Luciana out here at Adoring Sandra Bullock … I have added seventeen new HQ stills from Sandy’s film “The Heat” where she co-starred with the fabulous Melissa McCarthy! Enjoy the pictures.
Recently Sandra spoke with The Times UK about her new project Our Brand Is Crisis. During the discussion she talked about how she hates selfies.
She might be America’s sweetheart, but even Sandra Bullock has her limits – especially when it comes to social media.
The Our Brand Is Crisis star, 51, says she cringes at the idea of posting a slew of happy selfies for the world to “like,” because the image they project simply isn’t reality.
“We’re not representing our lives truthfully,” she tells U.K.’s The Times. “Like when you’re yelling at your child, you’re not taking a selfie of you being a horrible parent. No, you’re waiting for the perfect selfie. ‘Do I look thinner now?’ ‘Do I look great?’ It’s this false projection of one’s life. Hollywood has now gone global. Everyone’s Hollywood now.”
Bullock, who recently adopted daughter Laila, 3 ½ (she joins brother joins son Louis, who turns 6 this month), turns up her nose at the idea of the “selfie generation.”
“I hate taking selfies,” she says. “I will not take a selfie that I can’t erase. I don’t post or do any of that stuff.”
But that doesn’t mean the star is against taking family snapshots – privately.
Last week, the mother of two picked up a People’s Choice Award for favorite movie actress, and told the audience she keeps a trove of family videos on her smartphone. (She explained that Louis thought he should get an acting award for his starring role in the home movies.)
Bullock also told The Times that in the age of oversharing, less can often mean so much more.
“People have these worlds they post and it’s about projecting an image and getting likes,” she explains. “I read a great article about how there’s a higher rate of depression because people are looking at everyone else’s Facebook [pages] and seeing this picture-perfect life.
“I think it’s frightening for kids and young people developing who they are to have that false sense of acceptance based on an image,” she continued. “How do you unravel that when it’s being pushed hard?”
Sandra Bullock was the winner this Wednesday on People’s Choice Awards 2016 for Favorite Movie Actress for her work in Our Brand is Crisis. Watch the video below, and check pictures in our gallery:
The January issue of italian Vanity Fair magazine has reprinted the People’s article introducing us Sandy daughter Laila. You can find HQ scans added in our gallery:
The actress’ world – and heart – just got a whole lot bigger with the adoption of her 3 1/2 year-old daughter Laila, a little girl from Louisiana who had been in foster care. The Oscar-winner’s 5-year-old son Louis, whom she adopted in 2010, “spearheaded this whole journey” says Bullock, 51. “I think I was ready for her before she even arrived, and he knew exactly what to do as a big brother.” So how does the star now define family? “Those who show up, who are safe, and love, and protect you,” she says. “My family looks nothing like I ever imagined it would. It’s better than I ever imagined.”
