Sandra Bullock says she nearly left Hollywood because of sexism

'And Sandy Bullock just looks up and says, "Looking good, mama".

Since allegations of rape and sexual harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein ignited the Me Too movement late a year ago, dozens of actresses have come forward with their own stories of sexism and abuse in Hollywood.

Despite this, Hathaway admits she was conscious of her changed appearance - and says the reactions from her co-stars during filming were instrumental in her embracing it.

The film has an ensemble cast including Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson and Helena Bonham Carter. The Ghostbusters reboot also had some stellar talent but received some backlash for going with all-female leads, something Bullock isn't happy about.

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". Let's have a year of kindness.




What do you make of Bullock's and Awkwafina's statements? In the process, Rose is revivified by these women, and dresses Daphne in a dress with a long train in Barbie pink, which we all know is Janelle Monáe Sapphic pink. But this isn't about just women. 'And man, did we just murder that rumor. "We just want to be invited to their table as well because we like them at our table".

Then, Cate Blanchett chimed in, telling the Oscar victor, "Nice jeans, Hathaway" (in a laconic Aussie drawl, according to Hathaway's impersonation).

The emotional crux ofOcean's 8 happens fairly early on in the movie, when the titular Debbie Ocean, played by Sandra Bullock, is out of prison and back on her bullshit with a master plan to steal a $150 million Cartier necklace at the Met Gala.

As the recent cases of Elizabeth Holmes and Anna Delvey illustrate, there are few personalities more fascinating than the unrepentant con, and early in the film it feels like that's the direction Ocean's 8 might go. The film debuts in the United States tomorrow June 8, 2018.
