Sandra Bullock Rocks A High School Commencement Speech

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals B1

Ah… Sandra Bullock may be one of the cooler stars out there.  Bullock adopted her son Louis, 4, from New Orleans back in 2010.  She returned to the city recently, as a surprise commencement speaker at the Warren Easton Charter High School.  She used her son Louis, as a source of inspiration for her speech.

Some of her best pieces of advice include:

  • “Eat something green every day with every meal.”
  • “Do not pick your nose in public.”
  • “If someone doesn’t want to play with you, it’s okay. It’s okay. Not everyone is going to love us; go find someone who does want to play with you and who appreciates what you have to offer.”

You can see the video of the speech here.

Bullock’s next project is an animated film, ‘The Minions,’ due out in 2015.  There is also a rumor of a sequel to ‘The Heat,’ with Melissa McCarthy– which would be amazing since the first one was HILARIOUS.  I was literally dying during that movie.  Bullock has mentioned her lack of interest in sequels since they are often terrible- but if anyone could do it- she and McCarthy could.  That movie was seriously too funny.

Sandra Bullock made HOW MUCH starring in ‘Gravity’!?

"Gravity" Screening - 57th BFI London Film Festival

You ready for this?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandra Bullock will earn AT LEAST $70 MILLION for her role in ‘Gravity.’ At least SEVENTY MIIIILLION. Sandy was paid $20 million upfront to star in the role, and on top of that she’ll earn 15% of first-dollar grosses, meaning what the movie brought in at the box office.

Given the length of “Gravity,” a $70 million paycheck means Bullock will have earned about $769,000 for each of the movie’s 91 minutes.

“Gravity” earnings derive from the studio’s revenue negotiations with theater owners and the movie’s personnel. Because the movie has made more than $700 million worldwide and a studio’s cut of box office cash is typically 40 to 50 percent, Bullock is set to earn more than $50 million from theatrical revenue. The rest comes from home-video purchases and rentals along with other ancillary income. (Cuarón, co-star George Clooney and producer David Heyman reportedly may see hefty paychecks through these cash flows as well.)

Bullock is already one of Hollywood’s highest-paid stars, as she was No. 7 on Forbes’ list of 2013’s top-earning actresses. A payday like this should give her an added boost when the next rankings arrive. Funnily enough, last year’s wealthiest actress was Angelina Jolie, who made $33 million but turned down “Gravity” so she could work on directorial projects. Now Bullock can just pay Jolie to decline roles that would otherwise go to her, ensuring that she becomes both the top-earning actress and an Oscar nominee.

Do people still pay to get into wax museums?

Madame Tussauds Hollywood Celebrates Award Season By Unveiling Red Carpet Ready Sandra Bullock Figure

Seriously – who pays to see wax figures? I just do not get it? When I was really young, my grandparents took me to one in Vancouver, BC. Even at a young age, I knew it sucked. Why do people go? What is the point? I’m so perplexed.

Anyway, Sandra Bullock has been added to the long list of waxed celebrities! Today Madame Tussauds Hollywood unveiled a red carpet ready Sandra Bullock at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California.

Oh, and just for fun, here’s Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. Leonardo should sue…. that is not a very good representation. Angelina looks like the sex-doll version of herself.
