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

Sandra Bullock says she nearly left Hollywood because of sexism

Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean (worst drag name ever?) sister of Danny, who, by the way, is dead now.

Ocean's 8 is now heading for a $44 million opening weekend based on early numbers, Variety reports. Well, it appears Sandra Bullock was not happy about the backlash the film received and she chose to address those who disliked the Ghostbusters film.

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 central flaw of Ocean's 8 is that "people looking cool" isn't much of a story. No enemy opposition, such as Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia) in the first three films, either.

Halep has been beaten in all of her previous Major final appearances, including at Roland Garros a year ago by Jelena Ostapenko . Like Halep, Stephens is an incredibly talented defensive player, and she kept stretching points Thursday until Keys would err.

"These are eight distinct women with eight distinct backgrounds and that roughly look like what the world looks like, not just what Hollywood has made the world look like". Ari Aster's debut feature has earned highly positive reviews since premiering at Sundance, with many hailing it as one of the scariest films in years; particular praise has rightly been given to Collette, who delivers one of the finest performances of her career. And because of the setting at the Met Gala Ball, you also get to see a bunch of actors dressed up in gorgeous outfits (though fairly briefly), if that's your sort of thing. Anything all-female in this sexual harassment revolution we're living in is like an automatic statement of solidarity, but as Cate Blanchett said in a great interview with Refinery 29, this is also just a movie. I had a lot of sadness from that.

In the era of #MeToo, nothing is neutral - not even a movie which, lacking any political plot elements, looks on paper to be pure entertainment.

The first film to do so was the much-maligned Ghostbusters film, which received a ridiculous amount of controversy the very instant it was announced that the cast would be all-female.

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".
