Zoe Kazan: This role was originally written for a man. Is it true you asked to see scripts for male roles?
Sandra Bullock: Yeah. My agent said, “Let’s just start reading the scripts.” She came up with this one. I read it. She goes, “Should we ask them if they’re willing to make it a female?” I said, “Yeah.”
ZK: How did that thought occur to you?
SB: I did as my mother did: I put my blinders on and blazed forward. Sometimes you get a no. But I expect the no. I don’t expect the yes. With this I got very nervous. I didn’t know if George had made this for himself. But the response was “We’re cool with it.” And then the role—I mean, it was so beautifully written for a man. It wasn’t one of those things where you go, “Hmm, how do we change it to a woman?” You just change the sex; that was pretty much it. She’s human. She deals with addiction; she deals with mental illness. She’s brilliant at what she does, and she gets lost in the fact that all she cares about is a win. You look at our world—and back to my son: How do you raise a child to not make it all about the win when all we see in our world is people saying, “In order to have success, you have to win”?
The 2015 Toronto International Film Festival is in full effect, and Team InStyle is bringing you all the action straight from the fest! We teamed up with our sister publications People and Entertainment Weekly to build a pop-up portrait studio in the heart of downtown Toronto, where we’re interviewing and photographing all the biggest stars of the fest.
Friday afternoon, the cast of Our Brand Is Crisis stopped by, including Sandra Bullock, Zoe Kazan, Scoot McNairy, Grant Heslov, and David Gordon Green.
“She is complicated, but she is also incredibly brilliant at what she does,” Bullock says of her character in the film–a movie about the use of American political campaign strategies in South America. “She is able to do what she does without her conscience stepping in up to a certain point, and you see what happens when that shift is made when someone gets in and allows her to see the repercussions and the ramifications of what she’s done and she has to look at that. You wonder is she going to look away or is she going to ignore as she always has and keep going through?
What’s up next for the star? Only time will tell! “It was two years before I found this [role] and it might be another two years before I find something else. I don’t know what I am looking for, but I am just looking to get into the car pool lane on time and not get fussed at,” says Bullock, who is mom to son Louis. “That is really my goal right now. If a good role comes along, that is icing on the cake.” – InStyle
Latest issue of People Magazine has an interview with Sandy talking about Warren Easton. They also have this adorable picture of her with some gaduates, take a look:
Sandra Bullock is tired of hearing only bad news.
“No one ever talks about the good,” she says. “If you are ever wondering about how good life is and can be, you can come to Warren Easton.”
The actress, 49, adopted the public charter high school in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.
Bullock’s donations have helped rebuild the historic campus, fund scholarships for graduates, pay for athletic equipment and band uniforms and open a health clinic.
“These kids have been working a couple of jobs, some come from hard places, but every time they walk under that roof, they know they’re cared for,” she says. “They’re admired for what they can bring to the table.”
As principal Alexina Medley puts it, “When you come to Easton, you become part of the family.”
I’ve updated the gallery with Sandy’s latest Public Appearences at 12th Annual VES Awards and 86th Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon and also with one more outtake from Kirk McKoy photoshoot for LA Times. Click on the images below to jump to the albums:
Sandra Bullock has been teasing Alfonso Cuarón for the last four months about his penchant for enjoying a cup of warm green tea while she was crammed uncomfortably for hours in a 9-by-9-foot black box during the making of “Gravity.” Now, two hours before the recent Directors Guild of America Awards — an honor Cuarón would win — the Oscar-nominated actress offers a variation of the routine when he good-naturedly complains about having to change into a tuxedo for the event.
“Yeah, you guys have it so hard,” she tells him. “For women, you’re cattle. It’s three hours of hair and makeup and fluffing. And tonight it’s all for you.”
Bullock was there to present Cuarón his DGA medallion. And, it should be noted, she said the last sentence with a great deal of warmth and affection, a vibe that marked the hour spent with them before Cuarón’s big night. Here are excerpts from the conversation.

Sandy and Alfonso Cuarón were interviewed by The Guardian and they talked about how they made Gravity. Also, I’ve updated the gallery with Gravity stills, posters and behind the scenes as I’ve added pictures of Sandy and Alfonso Photoshoot by Robert Ascroft.
The makers of Gravity won’t really come back down to Earth till the awards season is over, but even if the movie doesn’t win any Baftas or Academy Awards, there is a sense of triumph in their simply having got the film made. They can also console themselves with the wall-to-wall acclaim and the $700m-odd in worldwide box office, but it’s inarguable that, more than any other movie of the past year, Alfonso Cuarón’s space epic pushed back the frontiers of film-making – to the extent that most viewers couldn’t fathom how on earth (or elsewhere) the film was even made. What is easy to forget is that, initially, Cuarón and his team didn’t have the slightest idea how to make it either.
