Sandra Bullock Revealed The One Movie
Sandra Bullock's been in tons of movies, Of course, no one has a perfect track record when it comes to, well, anything and it turns out there's one movie Sandra regrets doing.
Sandra Bullock still 'embarrassed' she made this movie
Sandra Bullock has starred in plenty of hit movies, but there's one project she wishes she passed on.
The actress appeared with her "The Lost City" costar Daniel Radcliffe on TooFab where they were asked about a project in their past that embarrassed them.
Bullock mentioned the 1997 sequel to "Speed," saying it was basically a bore.
"You stumped me with the fans coming around later on (part of the question)," she said. "I have one no one came around to and I'm still embarrassed I was in. It's called 'Speed 2.' (I've) been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island."
She even added she wished she wouldn't have done it.
"That's one I wished I hadn't done and no fans came around, that I know of," she said.
The film does have a cult following though, which Bullock called "quiet."
"Very quiet," she said. "Like, almost, five people. Him and the other four 12-year-olds that were watching the slow boat going towards the tiny island."
"Speed 2: Cruise Control" follows Bullock's character, Annie, who tries to rescue everyone when when the cruise she's on is hijacked. Her "Speed" costar Keanu Reeves did not return for the sequel.
Sandra Bullock says she regrets making this movie
The 'Lost City' actress said this one particular film from her decades-long career in Hollywood still makes 'no sense', According to Sandra Bullock, there’s one movie from her decades-long career in Hollywood that still makes "no sense."
The actress recently sat down with her co-star Daniel Radcliffe to discuss their new film "The Lost City." When the pair was asked if there are any movies they were initially "embarrassed" to do, but "came around to" for their fans, the actress was quick to respond.
"I have one [that] no one came around to, and I’m still embarrassed I was in," the 57-year-old told TooFab. "It’s called ‘Speed 2.’ I’ve been very vocal about it. Makes no sense. Slow boat. Slowly going towards an island."
"That’s one I wished I hadn’t done, and no fans came around that I know of, except for you," Bullock told the interviewer, who insisted he loved watching the movie as a teenager.
"I feel like it had a kind of cult love as well," Radcliffe chimed.
"Very quiet!" Bullock quipped. "Like five people. Him and the other four 12-year-olds who were watching the slow boat going towards the tiny island."
The 1997 film told the story of Annie (Bullock) who is vacationing on a Caribbean cruise with her boyfriend. However, the couple must stop the boat from crashing into an oil tanker.
Keanu Reeves starred alongside Bullock in the original 1994 film. However, he didn’t return to reprise his role as Jack Traven for the sequel. Instead, Bullock was paired with Jason Patric. Both films were directed by Jan de Bont.
Back in 2019, Reeves claimed that his decision not to do the sequel prompted the studio to put him in "movie jail" for 10 years.
"Well, I decided not to be in that," he told GQ at the time. "I loved working with Jan de Bont and Sandra, of course. It was just a situation in life where I got the script and I read the script and I was like, 'Ugh.' It was about a cruise ship, and I was thinking, 'A bus, a cruise ship… Speed, bus, but then a cruise ship is even slower than a bus, and I was like, 'I love you guys, but I just can't do it.'"
Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum find a chemistry that’s off the charts
‘The Lost City’ Movie review:
How charming is “The Lost City”? So charming that the villain is played by Daniel Radcliffe. So charming that it leaves you wondering why nobody has asked Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum to host the Oscars, or make an “Ocean’s 8” sequel in which he’s the mark, or team up for a series of PSAs in which they just banter for 30 seconds and make everyone feel better. So charming that the popcorn I was holding simply vanished, with no memory of it having ever existed. So charming that Brad Pitt, who pops by for an extended cameo, is not even the most charming person in it — and that, my friends, is a lot of charm.
“The Lost City,” directed by brothers Aaron Nee and Adam Nee, is no masterpiece; you sense that in the hands of a lesser cast, it might even have been a bit of a slog. Its story feels both ridiculous and predictable: Loretta Sage (Bullock), the reclusive author of bestselling romantic adventure novels, gets kidnapped while wearing a purple sequined jumpsuit (this is an important detail) by an eccentric rich dude (Radcliffe) who hopes she can lead him to a lost treasure in an ancient city alluded to in her recent book. Alan (Tatum), the absurdly handsome cover model for her book series, takes it upon himself to rescue her. Lots of running about in the jungle ensues, along with other “Romancing the Stone”-ish complications that you can likely figure out for yourself.
But Bullock and Tatum take hold of the material and turn it into an enchanted screwball. These two characters, we learn, don’t initially like each other very much: Loretta complains to her long-suffering agent (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) that “he’s always glistening all over the place”; Alan calls Loretta a “human mummy,” only to be reminded that mummies are human. (Alan is not the brightest bulb in the box, something Tatum plays with a sweetly masterful deadpan; referring to Loretta as a “word writer extra ordinary.”) After the kidnapping, Alan engages the services of a contractor skilled in jungle rescue (a grinning Pitt, having a ball) but insists on coming along on the mission, “for backup and awesomeness.” I cannot begin to describe how perfectly Tatum delivers that line, and I would like to get it as a ringtone.
The comic chemistry between these two is off the charts, and it’s such a pleasure to see Bullock, who’s been taking a detour into heavy drama lately (“Bird Box,” “The Unforgivable”), reminding us that she’s both the most likable of stars and a brilliant comedian. Watch her variety of funny walks; note how Loretta’s posture changes in that jumpsuit (it’s as if she’s apologizing for it); and listen as both she and Tatum mutter asides to each other that feel entirely spontaneous. Maybe they are? Here’s hoping these two team up again, immediately; we need them.
Channing Tatum’s improvised The Lost City lines were cut because Sandra Bullock
‘The directors had Channing ad-lib lines to us, and none of his lines were used because I was laughing so hard,’ Bullock said, Sandra Bullock has revealed that some of Channing Tatum’s ad-libbed lines in their new movie The Lost City ended up on the cutting room floor, because she couldn’t keep a straight face.

The actor made the revelation about Tatum’s lost contributions to the film while speaking to reporters at the SXSW red-carpet premiere for the film in Austin, Texas.
She explained that her co-star, who plays the novel’s cover model Alan Caprison in the film, was asked by the directors to improvise some lines during a scene where he and Pitt’s character rescue Bullock from the billionaire’s jungle lair.
"There's a scene where they have to get me to a car. He and that other actor — I can never remember his name, he's got blond hair," Bullock joked in reference to Pitt, Insider report
