Sandra Bullock may be receiving rave reviews for the outer space thriller Gravity, but the actress still has her sights set on the world of comedy.
The Hope Floats star loves the genre so much that she’s even willing to accept a role on a really lame sitcom to get her fix. Never mind the awards she won for The Blind Side — Bullock wants nothing more than to make you laugh.
“I will do comedy until the day I die: inappropriate comedy, funny comedy, gender-bending, twisting comedy, whatever comedy is out there. Even a bad TV show — if that’s where I have got to go at the end I will go there if it’s comedy,” she told Reuters Television.
Sandra Bullock is definitely no stranger to the world of comedy. She appeared alongside Melissa McCarthy in this year’s box office hit The Heat. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig’s latest cinematic endeavor grossed approximately $209 million worldwide.
The actress’ other efforts include The Proposal, Miss Congeniality, Two Weeks Notice, and the critically-panned All About Steve. While her attempts at comedy might be hit and miss, she seems to love the genre with a passion.
Bullock is currently busy promoting director Alfonso Cuaron’s acclaimed drama Gravity. The film recently debut at the Venice Film Festival to thunderous applause and kudos. She has also received rave reviews for her performance as Dr. Ryan Stone.
Although the Sandra Bullock loves a good joke, the actress told Collider that she and co-star George Clooney put their pranks on the back burner while filming the sci-fi flick. Given the intensity of the material, both decided to keep things as serious as possible.
“This film was so hard. Pranks had no place. There was never down time. How are you going to prank someone who’s hanging from a scaffolding with 12 wires, rigged up all day, and so we. So, we had a truce at the very get-go because that just wasn’t the appropriate place to prank someone,” she said.
Sandra Bullock fans can catch Gravity in theaters beginning October 4.
