Sandy interviewed her Miss Congeniality Co-star and old friend Candice Bergen for The Interview magazine April issue. Great idea and it’s a lovely interview, check it out:
Bergen’s old friend and Miss Congeniality (2000) co-star Sandra Bullock recently caught up with her by phone to discuss failing in college, raising children, and the joys of carbohydrates.
CANDICE BERGEN: It’s very cold here. We’re just sitting by the fire in our country house in France planning a wedding.
SANDRA BULLOCK: I’d rather be in Paris with a nice bottle of wine than in a little farmhouse, to be honest.
BERGEN: We’re drinking! [both laugh]
BULLOCK: Oh, good! I’d like you to continue drinking because as we get in-depth, there’s going to be some hard-hitting, probing questions. I want some honest answers coming from you, okay? [laughs]
BERGEN: I was counting on nothing less from you.
BULLOCK: I’m going to go all the way back. So few people are actually California natives, I’m finding. You were born and raised in Beverly Hills. You were born into an industry family that was a huge part of Hollywood. Was it normal for you, or did you know that you were born into this unique family situation?

Bullock is repped by CAA. The Tracking Board
Sandra Bullock has transformed from “America’s sweetheart” to Scarlet Overkill, a world-class female supervillain in the forthcoming Minions.
Yellow, pill-shaped Minions seek to serve the baddest of bad, and in the groovy, late-1960s setting of Minions (out July 10), Scarlet checks all the right boxes.
Minion henchmen. The creatures showed a knack for bringing accidental havoc to their master Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) in 2010′s Despicable Me and 2013′s Despicable Me 2.
The spinoff prequel Minions is an origins story that shows the creatures have historically hurt their beloved evil masters throughout history — unintentionally killing baddies from Tyrannosaurus rex to Genghis Khan.

Sandra Bullock appeared this morning in Puerta de Tierra in San Juan with her blonde hair and wearing a cream colored executive set to give life to a political consultant on the film “Our Brand is Crisis”, which is been filmed in Puerto Rico since yesterday and it’s produced by George Clooney.
After completing a long and intense day of filming yesterday at Roosevelt Roads Naval Base in Ceiba, Bullock arrived early in the morning to the facilities of the former School of Tropical Medicine in Old San Juan that simulated the “Hotel Condor” in Bolivia, the country where the plot of the film takes place.
About 8:00 am, the Oscar winner arrived at the set and an hour later was instructed to rehearse a scene in which she gets out of the hotel to encounter a political protest in front of it. For this scene, dozens of extras were hired to walk in circles in what appeared to be a protest where Bolivia flags and signs reading “We are all Bolivia” were shown.
Bullock repeated the scene more than eight times. At the beginning of it, she got out of the hotel and down the stairs watching the protest. As she returned inside to repeat the scene, she was covered by the production crew with a huge black umbrella so that she would not be photographed.
Sandra Bullock arrived in Puerto Rico today (November, 08). Her latest project, Our Brand Is Crisis will be filmed in the country and, according to local sources, she should be there for at least two weeks:
On Monday, the movie produced by George Clooney and directed by David Gordon will start shooting in San Juan.
Filming will last for 14 days and will happen in several different places of the country, such as Rio Piedras, Naranjito, Ceiba and other parts of San Juan. – El Nuevo Dia

She’s been filming new George Clooney-produced comedy, Our Brand Is Crisis, for the last two months. And Sandra Bullock was back on set in New Orleans on Tuesday, dressed like she meant business in a silk navy shirt and grey work trousers.
The 50-year-old star has undergone a radical transformation to play political consultant Jane Bodinea, covering up her brunette locks with a blonde hairpiece. The Oscar-winning actress was wearing subtle make-up to complement her new do, with just a small amount of mascara, foundation and bronzer. Sandra finished off the ensemble with a pair of black patent pumps and some round sunglasses. – DailyMail
Sandra Bullock is ranked #4 at Vulture’s Most Valuable Stars of 2014 list. The value of a contemporary movie star is determined by factores such as box office numbers, social media buzz, increasing foreign strength and critical respect:
Matthew McConaughey, Sandra’s costar in A Time to Kill and long time friend was honored with 28th American Cinematheque Award. She didn’t attend the cerimony but sent a taped message which included a poem she wrote:
A parade of McConaughey’s costars, past (Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon) and present (Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway from next month’s sci-fi epic “Interstellar”) introduced loosely themed clip packages of the 22 years he has spent acting. There were also videotaped well-wishers, including director Richard Linklater, who gave McConaughey his first signature role in “Dazed and Confused,” and Sandra Bullock, who recited a poem she wrote that boasted many memorable stanzas, including: “Thank you for your friendship, your loyalty and your trust / And thank you for reminding me it’s OK to have a smaller bust.” – LA Times
According to The Wrap, Joaquim de Almeida – known for Fast Five – and Zoe Kazan – known for What If – joined Sandra in Our Brand Is Crisis.
“Fast Five” star Joaquim de Almeida is set to play the male lead opposite Sandra Bullock in David Gordon Green’s political dramedy “Our Brand Is Crisis,” which has also added “What If” star Zoe Kazan to its strong ensemble cast, TheWrap has learned.
“Our Brand Is Crisis” is based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary of the same name, which focused on the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia by President Clinton’s former consultants James Carville and Stan Greenberg.
Bullock will play “Calamity” Jane Bodine, a retired American political consultant, while de Almeida will play Castillo, the former president of Bolivia who’s running for president for the second time in 15 years. No friend to the poor working class, Castillo is cold, aloof and completely out of touch with the common man — but he’s also also suffering from dementia, which sometimes leaves him confused.
Kazan has landed a supporting role as a young woman who digs up dirt on political candidates.
Peter Straughan (“The Men Who Stare at Goats”) wrote the script, and Warner Bros. executives Courtenay Valenti and Racheline Benveniste will oversee the project for the studio. Production will start this fall.
