A most excellent lesson in self-defense à la Agent Gracie Hart.
Friendly reminder that Miss Congeniality featured a practical self-defense lesson in the middle of a Hollywood movie while also dealing with with issues of sexual assault and victim blaming, dismantling the myth that all feminists need to look and act a certain way, featuring women of color in the pageant without it being any kind of issue, and bringing in an awesome female villain because women can be any kind of character thank you very much.
Rock on, Gracie Lou.

Sandra Bullock on Charlie Rose Show - Feb. 4th
So I thought maybe it would be a nice, fun approach to this evening to maybe do something different. So I Googled myself and I read the comments section, thinking I would get some tidbits of what people really think of me, and you know, share them with you for, you know, humorous purposes. Sidenote, no human being should ever, ever read the comment section, or Google one’s self at any time. But I did learn a lot about myself, I did. Some things I was already very well aware of. Let’s see, “Sandra Bullock is over 40” came up a lot. I know – I know that. “Sandra Bullock is way past 40”. Yeah, I know that, too. Oh and apparently, Julia, you and I are in a dispute over George Clooney. We talked about this right? It’s just – it’s shared custody and we’re both fine with it. I don’t know why people keep drumming it up. Lots and lots of comment about who I’ve dated, some are true, some I’ll never admit to. And there was a run of comments on people who didn’t understand why I was in this business. You know, funny things like, I quote anonymous, “I mean there is absolutely nothing special about her acting”, “She’s not particularly attractive”, “I can’t stand her”, “She’s mediocre”, “She’s over 40”.
lmao this award show is such a mess.
