Benjamin bratt dating sandra bullock
In the middle of a press tour for Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, Sandra Bullock makes no bones about not being a fan of making sequels.
And after the 1997 pitiful Speed 2: Cruise Control which sank at the box-office, who can blame her?
But you know, it doesn't always have to repeat itself."Evidently, Bullock still felt her misfit character had something more to say and another adventure to endure."I think that it's really important, especially for anyone who feels they don't fit in or that they're unique, or that they don't belong to the masses. The oldest child of a German mother and an American father (Bullock speaks fluent German), she spent the first 12 years of her life travelling between her hometown in Virginia and Germany.
Her mother, Helga, who passed away after a long battle with cancer five years ago, was an opera singer, and her father, John, a former voice coach. I wore the wrong clothes and I always felt awkward. When I came home from school, looking like a mess and crying, my mother would ask: 'That's ridiculous. '"Interestingly, this difficult adolescent experience can be considered a multi-million dollar blessing. "Getting knocked around a little definitely gave me an empathetic view of humanity."Possessing a natural warmth and openness, Bullock insists everyone on the set (no matter what their position) call her Sandy.
Combined with her eternal sunny disposition and a knack of starring in feelgood movies such as While You Were Sleeping (which earned her a Golden Globe nomination), 28 Days, Two Weeks Notice and Forces of Nature, Bullock has perfected physical comedy on screen.
She admits she goes with her gut reaction when selecting roles. I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach when something horrible is going to happen.
' She couldn't do what she does for a living any more, because she's famous now."We were not crazy about the idea of doing a sequel, I mean, if you can take away the title and not put a 'two' on it, it'd be great, but you know, there's something to be said about continuing a story. You just want to say, 'We can all live together and have different opinions, whether it's political or religious or what you like to do, what you like to eat for breakfast versus what someone else wants.' It's sort of like saying, 'Why don't we promote the uniqueness of someone instead of trying to make them normal?
Like Harrison Ford and Michael Douglas can keep telling a story, but yeah, there are disaster sequels and I should know, because I've been in one. '"It may be hard to swallow, but Bullock claims to have been an outsider during her schooldays, and this topic is still close to her heart.
With her peaches-and-cream complexion, and her long, chestnut brown hair, the 40-year-old actress is still the epitome of youth.
I should have seen the warning signs with some of my films, but I don't regret anything."With the exception of A Time to Kill, The Net and Murder By Numbers, it's a bit of a mystery why this veteran performer has received little respect for her serious acting roles.
Yet, you have to admire Bullock for her go-getting attitude, as she is one of the few actresses to be a hands-on producer since she first produced Gun Shy, with Liam Neeson and Oliver Platt, in the Nineties.
