The Proposal? Speed? Ellen DeGeneres Reveals She Inspired This Classic Sandra Bullock Film!

ellen degeneres sandra bullock inspired movie

Who would've thought one of the greatest Sandra Bullock movies was based on Ellen DeGeneres??

No, Ellen was not trapped on a speeding bus carrying a ticking time bomb with Keanu Reeves!

The Oscar host actually inspired the comedic film Miss Congeniality!

Ellen revealed:

"Miss Congeniality was written based on me. When I was getting ready to cohost the Emmys, the writer saw me learning how to walk in a dress and heels. My stylist at the time—a man—was teaching me, and it was hilarious. The Miss Congeniality writer saw it and thought it was brilliant."

How awe-spiring! We have some thanks to give up to the Finding Nemo actress! She basically inspired one of the best comedies ever!

We wonder if Sandy knew that when she took the role!

Is there anything this AH-Mazing hostess with the mostess can't do??

    Get over yourself, Ellen. She's getting the Oprah Winfrey big head.

    Re: likatmur88 – Get a grip. I am pretty sure she was joking.
