Sandra Bullock's quotes

  • (on marital plans) I've always been very sceptical about marriage, because I only want to do it once; I want to do it the right way.
  • I remember sitting down in Joel Silver's office and Joel going, "Do you want to do this film?". I remember going, "I would like to do it, but I would love to talk about the character", and it was almost like I had said the biggest joke.
  • The only reason I haven't married yet, is because I take it too seriously.
  • Fame means when your computer modem is broken, the repair guy comes out to your house a little faster.
  • I have no desire to maintain a lifestyle. I am a horrible celebrity. If I am out in public, I dress like a pig.
  • The Acadamy Awards shouldn't even nominate Meryl Streep anymore. She should just be given an award every year. There should just be the Meryl Streep category.
  • Everyone told me to pass on Speed (1994) because it was a "bus movie".
  • I'd rather take risks than make something that's cookie cutter.
  • I don't like to talk about personal things. And by keeping it private, you have a better shot at a healthy relationship. I learned at a young age that there are certain things you just don't talk about.
  • I don't think there's ever what could be called a "chilled state" in my head.
  • My goal now is to remember every place I've been, only do things I love and not say yes when I don't mean it.
  • [on motherhood] If I'm blessed with that, I hope I am the best version of me that I can possibly be. (People magazine)
  • Why do you need one? I don't understand why there needs to be a love interest to make women go see a film. I think society sort of makes us feel that way - that if you don't have a guy, you're worthless.
  • On Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997): That was a mistake but, in retrospect, how are you supposed to know?
  • (On how it felt and what it said about life that she was nominated for a Razzie and an Oscar for Best Actress within two days in 2010): That life is perfectly balanced.
  • I used to be an optimist, but now I know that nothing is going to turn out as I expect.
  • [Contrasting highs in her professional life with lows in her private life] Whoever established the high road, and how high it was going to be, should be fired.
  • The sexiest man alive? My husband and then, Keanu!! (2006)
  • [on Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011), her film about 911] The story is about honoring people's grief, while giving them permission to have it. And I loved that it showed generations in pain, and how they healed each other by listening and talking.
  • [on being changed by motherhood] I cry at everything now... I've become more open to surprises and feelings.
  • What everyone needs is love, unconditionally.
