Sandra Bullock Rides Her Blind Side High to the Golden Globes Press Room

Jan 17 2010 - 8:42pm

Sandra Bullock [1] looked absolutely stunning in her purple dress, though she got a little worried that it might be see through in the lights when she stepped on stage in the press room after winning her Best Actress Golden Globe [2] for The Blind Side [3]. As usual, she gushed about the real-life family the movie was based on and she also had some very sweet things to say about her two- and three-legged doggies. Here's a few more highlights from Sandra:


[4]

  • On having such success after taking a break from Hollywood: "How crazy is that? What is the metaphor here? Let go, and go to food. It will get you awards. I do think you need to get away from this town to where your art can exist. I become things I shouldn't be. I go to where I can be myself and be more clear. I'm just really lucky because the performances this year — I don't know how you can choose."
  • On how to top this year: "I don't want to top it. I've always said I was really happy before all this because I found what my happiness was. I didn't want to leave home. I was so happy at home and I'd never had that before, so leaving that – it had to be amazing."
  • On the double standard between men and women over 40: "It's still a little bit different, but it's gotten so much better. I look back at my year and I say wow, I had such great successes and they were written by men — The Proposal and The Blind Side. I just feel that if you write it, they will come. But you also need to get a studio to finance it, there are so many variables. You look at what Sarah Jessica Parker [5] has done, Meryl Streep [6] — I mean, women do pull in some money."
