Sandra Bullock Pulls Out Of Gulf Preservation PSA After Organization Linked To Oil Companies!

If this is true, then we stand behind her decision 100%! That would be so fucked up!

Sandra Bullock is reportedly demanding to be removed from a PSA for Gulf restoration she appears in because the organization behind it may actually be taking money from oil companies!

Awful!

The PSA (above), called Be The One, was put together by Women of the Storm's Restore the Gulf campaign, which is sponsored by the American Wetland Foundation. That group has allegedly taken money from oil and gas companies - INCLUDING BP!

Her publicist, Cheryl Maisel, claims:

"Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for [Bullock's] participation in the PSA be removed until the facts be determined."

The organization, however, denies these claims, and have asked to meet with Bullock to explain the matter.

They've also reached out to others featured in the PSA, including Lenny Kravitz, Blake Lively, and Dave Matthews, so no one else will attempt to pull out!

Founder Anne Milling explains:

"I was shocked and of course very disappointed. However, I do believe that once Ms. Bullock hears and listens to the facts and understands that Women of the Storm has had no connection or taken money from oil companies, I think that will allay her fears and I believe she will rejoin our video because she really believes in coastal restoration. She is committed to that."

We hope that she's telling the truth, and this matter can be resolved!

It would be such a shame to have what appears to be a good cause be tainted like this!

Thoughts??

Sandra Set To Return Her Razzie!

The original Razzie is going home!

Sandra Bullock, who was cool enough to personally accept the Golden Raspberry - for her performance in the shiteous All About Steve - in person after winning an Academy Award, was embroiled in the middle of some mild dramz over the weekend when reports circulated that she had walked away with the original, prototype statuette and not the $5 knockoff that winners are intended to officially receive!

Razzie founder John Wilson has already claimed that he had reached out to Bullock with no intention for the issue to be made public, and now the actress's publicist, Cheryl Maisel, has released a statement:

"We were never contacted by them to return the Razzie. I contacted them yesterday to check the validity of the story and was only told then that we had been given the wrong award. We will be returning the Razzie to them shortly."

We hope this was just a legitimate miscommunication and that the Razzie founders weren't trying to take advantage of all the press the actress is receiving right now! She was trying to be a big person by even showing up to the event in the first place!

Thoughts??
