Just because Sandra Bullock walked away with an Oscar for her performance in The Blind Side doesn’t mean the actress felt she deserved it.
The star of director Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity was recently in attendance at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the sci-fi flick. During the Q&A session, someone asked Bullock to discuss her win at the 2010 Academy Awards.
“I think most people have that out of body experience when they win the Oscar. I had a little newborn at home so my body was already out of it’s element I think. I still haven’t gotten around to having my moment with it yet. Maybe one day it will come,” the actress said.
Sandra Bullock also revealed that she doesn’t feel “worthy” of the award. Even after having the trophy in her possession for over three years, the Heat star still doesn’t think she’s deserving of the prestigious honor.
“What [winning an Oscar] does do is it makes you realize how hard you have to work to earn it. I didn’t feel worthy of it when I got it, so I thought, ‘Okay, I’m going to spend the rest of my life earning it, but having a really good time in the process as well,’” she said.
The actress added, “So out of body experience completely, but it’s exhaustion I had as well.”
Sandra Bullock could find herself up for even more awards this season. Gravity is receiving nothing but rave reviews from critics. The general public will be able to see what all the fuss is about when the flick hits theaters on October 4.
The actress said filming the sci-fi movie was a little frightening since her movements were controlled by Alfonso Cuaron in order to simulate gravity.
“There was no improvising. The physical part was so scary. What was even scarier than that was the technology was being created on the spot,” she explained.
