‘My Dad & Both My Dogs Died’ — Sandra Bullock Reveals ‘Crappy Few Weeks’ In Speech
Poor Sandra Bullock!
Sure, she’s a beloved movie star, one of America’s sweethearts — but gurl has got some seriously bad luck.
Most recently she went through a thoroughly depressing period which included the death of her father, John Bullock, in September.
And also her dogs, Poppy and Ruby, both passed away during the same couple weeks! We had no idea!
Sandy B revealed her misfortunes in a speech at Elle‘s Women in Hollywood event during which she was supposed to be extolling the virtues of her pal and Ocean’s 8 costar Sarah Paulson.
She told the crowd, per UsWeekly reporters:
“I was going to write a nice speech about all the things I like about Sarah Paulson. Sarah Catharine Paulson, she likes when you use her middle name, or Powell-son, as my 5-year-old calls her.
But it’s been a crappy few weeks. My dad died, both of my dogs died. You turn on the television or computer and it’s endless tragedies and it seems like more than ever now if you have a vagina, you have to be a fighter as well. So, I don’t feel nice. So, I decided tonight I’m going to talk about all the things I don’t like about Sarah.”
BAD STUFF ABOUT SARAH PAULSON??
OK, obviously she was kidding — her faux roast was actually a full course of compliments as she facetiously explained:
“I don’t like the fact that she can wear things that look like a child threw a box of highlighters. Or that she dissembled her grandmother’s couch and reassembled it with safety pins. And still takes your breath away the minute she walks on the red carpet. I don’t like that bravery and I don’t like that it’s inspiring.I don’t like that she loves so deeply and so openly. And I don’t like that she is loved so deeply and so openly by extraordinary people because it only shines the light on how I just need to be better. I don’t like her work ethic. It reminds me that I need to work harder.”
She also referred to Sarah’s relationship with actress Holland Taylor as she continued:
“I don’t like that her and Holland’s joy for life and each other reminds me that I need to be a better girlfriend. I don’t like that she’s the kind of person that after a long day of flying and fittings will sit in your hotel room after you believe she has nowhere else to go when in fact she is fully aware that you’ve been stood up and she doesn’t want you to be alone. Just like I didn’t like the dozens upon dozens upon roses with little white poppies intermingled in them mere hours after I put my dog to sleep, whose name happens to be Poppy. So if that is the type of person you want for your icon, then I think you have chosen well.”
Good thing Sandra has been lucky with her friends!
What’s YOUR worst month, readers??
