I nearly quit acting because of sexism in Hollywood: Sandra Bullock

I nearly quit acting because of sexism in Hollywood: Sandra Bullock

Sandra said, "We had over a year and a half to just really get to know each other and just fall in love with each other".

Sandra Bullock is leading an all-star cast in Ocean's 8, but she took a moment to address the unfairness she saw in the reactions to the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters.

Ocean's 8 showcases the all-star assemblage of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter, and Awkwafina.

President Trump says he may pardon late boxing champion Muhammad Ali
Earlier this week, Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by Kim Kardashian West. Mr Trump's comments follow his pardon of conservative political commentator and author Dinesh D'Souza .

Fans can check out Ghostbusters on digital and Blu-ray now, while Ocean's 8 hits theaters on June 8. My mother raised me saying, "You don't need to get married, you forge your own path. Oh my God, I'm being treated this way because I have a vagina, '" she said. Critics say they're all put to solidly entertaining use in this light caper; as with the more recent Ocean's installments, all that star power - and the charisma of the stars - is often enough to carry the movie even when the plot isn't as dazzlingly smart as it thinks.

Explaining how she got to where she is today, the actress credited director Jan de Bont for giving her her breakout role in 1994's Speed, "when I was the last person the studio wanted". The actress said that she felt self-conscious when she went to work and was "aware" that her body was a different size from what people were used to. I think we all got stupid and giddy every time she walked on set. "And that was a hard pill to swallow". He was still alive at the end of Ocean's 13 (2007) but I suppose a lot can happen in 11 years. I was like, "Wow, maybe I need to step out of here. Maybe I need to do something else for a living".

Bullock's not the only one in the industry who's been affected by sexism. "We do live in a capitalist society, so it's like your worth is valued in monetary terms". But Debbie's not as showy as her big brother: You can nearly imagine her growing up living in his gregarious shadow, knowing she was just as good a thief as he is but having to keep it to herself.
