During Toronto International Film Festival, Our Brand Is Crisis star Sandra Bullock discussed the project and how her political consultant character would help GOP candidate Donald Trump.
While sitting down with her fellow castmembers, Bullock was questioned about what her character Jane Bodine would do to help sell Trump to the American public. “I don’t think Jane needs to sell Donald Trump,” Bullock said, adding “Doing just fine. I’m not that good. He’s doing just fine selling Donald.”
Bullock explained Bodine as “complex” and “troubled” while expanding on her personal story. “There’s nothing perfect about her. She’s complex. She’s troubled. She’s struggling,” Bullock said. “She’s dealing with some mental illness. She’s dealing with addiction. She’s dealing with life as most people are.”
While the actress said that Bodine is good at her career, that doesn’t necessarily she should be doing it.
Producer Grant Heslov commented about the similarities to the film and the current political scene in the U.S. “We didn’t really time this to come out now amidst of this huge election. It’s kind of great timing. All you have to do is look at what’s happening in the primary right now and it literally is a circus.”
The actress chimed in and said that the antics in the film don’t merely apply to the political world. “It’s in the entertainment business… the manipulation, the cynicism, the circus, all of it. It’s exactly the same. It’s about selling.”

“You were always so welcoming and every single person on your crew was that way consistently, and I just felt special even when I felt very insecure,” Bullock told Leno. “And everyone, I think, in this room and in this country, has felt that every day that you’ve been in their homes.”
