Sandra Bullock Quotes On Comedy

I really am thankful that I got to do The Proposal movie the right way with people who taught me how to do comedy better.

I will do comedy until

I was actually looking at comedies and wondered, ‘Why is every comedy for a women a romantic one? I was so done! Then I said, ‘Could I look at every script Jim Carrey rejected?’ It didn’t center around me getting a man.

People who do comedy really are the nastiest people on the planet.

Sandra Bullock Quotes On Film

The rule is you have

The rule is you have to dance a little bit in the morning before you leave the house because it changes the way you walk out in the world.

Leaving my house and getting on to a red carpet is always crazy for me, because you have to find a way to be comfortable in the most uncomfortable situation imaginable.
