George Clooney is such a prankster! He and his super cool celeb friends got Sandra Bullock to jump into a pool with her clothes on. She thought they were all jumping in, but nope! Nicole Kidman didn’t fall for it. Or maybe she was in on it. She’s Nicole Kidman, she wasn’t jumping in any goddamn pools in her lovely gowns. She practically is Grace Kelly. And I love her. What the hell was I talking about?
Oh, right. Mr. Clooney’s prank. Here’s what Ms. Bullock said on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (via People):
I went to the bathroom and came out and there was George and someone else with just their pants on going, ‘We’re gonna go in the pool,’ and I was like, ‘Really?’ ” she told Leno. “And so I held their hands and on the count of three, and in slow motion I see Nicole Kidman with a stack of towels … and I jump, and they let go, and I go in the pool. [...] But the sad part was I wore this cute little lace dress that I paid a lot of money for, and as I got out, it started disintegrating.
Right, I’m sure you “paid a lot of money” for the dress. I’m sure it wasn’t given to you. I like that you’re trying to connect with the people, Sandra.
Bullock and Clooney star together in Gravity, in which they play astronauts who get stranded in space. The trailer gave me god awful anxiety. Which means I think it’s going to be a good film and I may actually see it.
I would totally let George Clooney prank me. It sounds like great fun. Let’s have a moment of sad face for the unnamed “someone else” in the story, who clearly wasn’t famous enough for a mention. :(

Sandra Bullock went through some shit with ex-husband Jesse James, what with all the “cheating on her repeatedly, even in the midst of adopting a child together” bullshit. Of course, she’s a classy lady, so she handled it with utter grace, took THE CUTEST BABY EVER and moved on with her life, and she’s doing great! However, that doesn’t stop interviewers asking her about it. Like everything else, though, she’s got it together and basically gives the best answer possible.
From the October issue of Vogue:
“We’re all where we’re supposed to be. I am exactly where I want to be now. You can’t go backward. I’m not going backward. I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything.”
“If you end up in a place where you can look back and go, ‘It happened, but I’m so lucky to be sitting where I am sitting.’”
Too right, girl. That’s a great way of looking at all the bad shit that can happen in life. If you don’t learn something from it, it’s completely worth it. She’s got it right.
On a side note, not sure about the hair, but can’t wait for Gravity!!

I don’t know what it is about Sandra Bullock – she’s just so… likeable. Her movies aren’t anything life-changing, but they do tend to be funny or at least really endearing and chuckle-worthy. She knows this is her niche, so don’t worry! She’ll be doing comedy for the rest of her life, she’s promised.
Sandra Bullock put in a call to the astronauts on the International Space Station for tips on how to play her latest role in space drama “Gravity”, but America’s “Miss Congeniality” says she will never give up playing comic roles.
“I will do comedy until the day I die: inappropriate comedy, funny comedy, gender-bending, twisting comedy, whatever comedy is out there,” Bullock said on Thursday in an interview with Reuters Television.
“Even a bad TV show – if that’s where I have got to go at the end I will go there if it’s comedy,” she said the day after “Gravity”, in which she co-stars with George Clooney, got its world premiere at the Venice film event.
That’s good to know! Also, I forgot for a hot second that she’s doing Gravity – that movie looks so good! I also still need to watch that movie she did with Melissa McCarthy… what’s it called? Ah yes, The Heat. (Have any of you seen it? Was it any good?) I digress… In any case, glad Sandy will stick with comedy, but no need to lower yourself to doing a bad show!

Admittedly, all you’d have to say is “space drama” and I’m there, so Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity already had me on its side. George Clooney and Sandra Bullock are the stars and they’re both inoffensive enough and can be pretty great in the right medium, so they’ve still got me on that. Now, a single take trailer has been released and I am SO on board (no pun intended). I’m seriously about to go buy tickets now even though that’s not even possible yet because it doesn’t come out until October. In less than two minutes, that shit managed to get me all kinds of anxious and interested, so the whole movie is probably gonna be BOMB.
Gravity is about two astronauts (Clooney and Bullock, duh) who are trying to get back to Earth after their ship is hit by debris (which the trailer starts to show). I’m so into it – this kinda stuff is right up my street. The movie’s premiering at the Venice Film Festival on August 28, but the best part is that when it’s actually released in theatres, you can see it in 2D, 3D or IMAX. Yessssss.
What do you think – will you see this?

So we’re all aware that Sandra Bullock is great and her son Louis Bardot is absolutely adorable, right? That’s a thing we’re all in agreement on? Good. Sandra has dedicated most of her time and energy now to raising her little dude and has focused all her energy on mom time. Here’s some quotes from an interview with Io Donna:
“The only man in my life is my son, and it’s probably going to stay this way for a while.
“I go to bed wearing a very baggy one-piece cheetah suit, just because it makes my son laugh. My sexy lingerie has been locked in a drawer for a while!”
“Every day my only focus is my son. I wake up at dawn, drive him to school and leave only a couple of hours for myself and that time is usually spent doing laundries. You know those parents who always complain about being exhausted? I feel exactly the same, but with him everything is also fun and new.
“I wake up in the morning and the only aim is being fun, who could say that? I feel lucky and blessed.”
Aw, that’s so cute! So cute that I literally have nothing negative to say about any of this! But let’s all take a quick second and look back on baby Louis and how much we just wanted to squish him for being so adorable, shall we?

I don’t mind me a bit of Sandy Bullock – her movies are inoffensive enough and she seems like a pretty sweet lady and a decent actress. Plus, her baby, Louis, is absolutely adorable. Not sure why that gives her added credibility, but it does, so let’s just go with it. In any case, she’s got an exciting new role coming down the pipe, maybe: Miss Hannigan in Sony’s Annie remake.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Bullock would play Miss Hannigan, the mean lady who runs the orphanage inhabited by Annie (Wallis) and her friends. (Foxx will play a modern incarnation of Daddy Warbucks, a billionaire named Benjamin Stacks.)
But that is only if a deal is made. Bullock and the studio were in talks in March, but the actress ultimately passed at the time. Now the two sides are back at the table.
I’m sort of in support of this, but a little confused about the casting of this movie all-around. I love little Q, so I’m in on that front, but I’ve never really liked Jamie Foxx very much, to be honest. Also, the 1982 version is so classic so I’m not really sure why we need a remake. Can’t people leave well enough alone?
