Sandra Bullock Praises Tom Hanks

Posted by Adam

SANDRA Bullock has heaped praise on Tom Hanks after the actor pulled out all the stops just to be heard as her screen husband.

The Proposal star says she was stunned by her fellow Oscar winner’s dedication while shooting 9/11 drama Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close after he turned up on set just to make a phone call.

“There’s a scene where I get a phone call from Thomas Schell, who’s played by Tom Hanks,” explains Sandra.

“It’s a scene that was all off-camera for him, he doesn’t have any camera time. I thought he would can call from the hotel but then at the crack of dawn, there shows Tom Hanks, in the lobby of this office building where we were shooting.

“He didn’t need to be there but showed up, sat in that room all day, adjusting his performance, giving something different each time. That’s why he’s the actor he is.”

Bullock recently revealed she’s planning to spoil her son Louis for Christmas.

“It’s gonna be a little ridiculous,” she said.

“I want the photo ops to be really great because he’s not going to remember it, but he’ll remember it by the photos and when he’s 16 and says, ‘I hate you — you’re a horrible mother,’ I’ll go, ‘Do you see this Christmas? Do you see that I got you that life-size lion? Shut up! Get in your room and do your homework. I was a good mother then.’

“And that’s what I’m going to use. That’s my ammunition.”
