Sandra Bullock, All-Round Hero, Slams People For Attacking Women On Their Looks

Sandra Bullock's taking-down of the criticism women face about their looks has received a resounding 'whoop' from the entire female population. This is what she has to say...

Sandra Bullock is one of those celebs that we don't hear of that often — the promo tour for her new film Minions aside, obvs — but whenever we do, she always managed to make us fall in love with her that little bit more. And this latest news is certainly no exception. 

After being named the world's most beautiful woman earlier this year, you'd expect that the 50-year-old actress would have no qualms with how she's interpreted by the media. However, as her latest interview proves, she's far from happy about the immense pressure that she, and every other female on the planet, have to face everyday. 

Speaking candidly about the negative vibes women face in regards to their appearance, Sandra made it clear to E! News that it's something that, for the lack of a better term, really pisses her off. Take it away, Sandy... 

'I feel like it's become hunting season in how women are attacked,' she said. 'And it's not because of who we are as people, it's because of how we look, or our age.' However, she was just getting started.

Clearly, this is a subject that Sandra's devoted a lot of time thinking about it, and she's worried about the repercussions it could have in her own family unit — her adopted son Louis in particular. Illustrating the struggle, she continued to say: 'I'm embarrassed about it, because my son's getting ready to grow up in this world, and I'm trying to raise a good man who values and appreciates women.'

Of course, the conversation turned to when People asked her to be on their cover this year after the publication announced her as the most beautiful woman in the world, she said she laughed, but felt she could use the global platform for good. 'I said if I could talk about the amazing women that I find beautiful, which are these women who rise above and take care of business and do wonderful things and take care of each other, then I'm more than honoured to be on the cover of this.' Whatta' woman...

Going on to talk about the women who inspire her, the Blind Side Oscar-winner revealed, rather surprisingly, the comradery she and her fellow stars have for one another in Hollywood. On the subject of her colleagues, she said: 'You'd be surprised at the love that you have. In our crazy industry, the women have bonded together, and it has sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out it is an onslaught.'

So, while the film industry may not be up with the feminism times, it's refreshing to know that the celebrities themselves are championing their fellow women. We can only hope the rest of the world follows suit.
