Bullock calls making “Gravity” her “Best Life Decision”
Sandra Bullock says that making the lost-in-space movie “Gravity” with director Alfonso Cuaron was “the best life decision I think I ever made.”
Cuaron coaxed Bullock into playing an astronaut coping with disaster at the International Space Station after she had intentionally taken a break from Hollywood following her Oscar-winning performance in “The Blind Side,” subsequent divorce and then adoption of her son, Louis.
“What I got out of it personally outweighed everything else,” Bullock said in an interview. “I’m glad I got to meet the human being — Alfonso — that led me to say, ‘OK, let me investigate if I can even do this.”
Bullock’s priority had been spending time with her son, who is now 3, but Cuaron assured her that she wouldn’t miss anything while shooting the film. The film also features George Clooney and lands in theatres on Friday.
