Melissa McCarthy? Nervous to talk to Sandra Bullock?! RIDIC.
When it came time for Melissa to be introduced to Sandra for the 2013 comedy The Heat, the Spy star says she was a “nervous wreck” to even talk to Bullock on the phone. People reports:
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m going to get a call from Sandra Bullock!’ And I was still saying first and last name, I could only say ‘Sandra Bullock,’ ” McCarthy, 44, tells People.
“Like ‘Hello, Sandra Bullock.’ ‘Nice to meet you, Sandra Bullock.’ ‘Nice to chat with you, Sandra Bullock.'”
Trying to calm her nerves, McCarthy, who was shooting Identity Thief at the time, says she then noticed that Bullock was speaking very softly. “She said, ‘I’m rocking the baby’ and she took this call and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ ” McCarthy says.
“And then I weirdly whispered, and she was like, ‘You don’t have to whisper, you’re not on speaker,’ and I was like, ‘I realize that, Sandra Bullock. I’m sorry, Sandra Bullock. I’ll stop whispering to your baby.’ “
Aw, Melissa! Don’t wake Sandra Bullock’s baby. Sandra Bullock probably forgave your awkwardness, though. Right, Sandra Bullock?
