article imageHow Sandra Bullock almost passed on 'The Blind Side' & the Oscar Special

By Earl Dittman     Mar 23, 2010 in Entertainment
Bullock was close to turning down the lead role in The Blind Side (now on DVD/BD), which would have meant no Oscar win. What changed her mind? This week, also check out Stargate: Atlantis, Toy Story, Mad Men, Prisoner, Carny, Damage & Brothers.
After taking a little time off from making movies, Sandra Bullock blasted back onto the Hollywood scene last summer with the box office hit The Proposal. With costars Ryan Reynolds and Betty White by her side, they were able to turn an unconventional little romantic comedy into one of the biggest movies of the summer. Bullock followed it up with the off-beat and modestly successful comedy, All About Steve (with The Hangover star Bradley Cooper). However the best was yet to come – for Bullock and her fans – in the form of The Blind Side, the true story about a homeless, black young man (Michael Oher) who is adopted by a well-to-do white, Southern family (Leigh Anne and Sean Touhy) whose faith in him helps him to become an All-American football star.
“The inspiring part of this movie is, here is this family that does this and didn’t do it because someone was writing a book or an article or making a movie,” Bullock explains. “They did it because that’s where their instincts said, ‘This is what we are going to do, and we are going to reach out a hand,' By doing that, so many people's life's were changed for the better.”

Teenager Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) is living on his own when he is spotted on the street by Leigh Anne Tuohy. Learning that the young man is one of her daughter's classmates, Leigh Anne invites him to stay at the Tuohy home for the night. What starts out as a gesture of kindness turns into something more as Michael becomes part of the Tuohy family despite the differences in their backgrounds. And as the family helps Michael fulfill his potential both on and off the football field, Michael leads them to some insightful self-discoveries.
Although Bullock wasn't sure the role of Leigh Anne Touhy was right for her, when director John Lee Hancock (The Rookie), took Sandra to meet Leigh Anne in Memphis, she began to consider the idea of signing on. “Leigh Anne is a one-of-a-kind human being, and I didn't know if I could do her justice, that was my main concern of mine,” Bullock recalls. “She's an incredible woman and I knew that playing her would be an incredible challenge. But it was just the kind of challenge I thought I needed at this time of my career. I would either pull it off or look like a fool doing it. Actually, though, I never really remember saying, 'Yes,'” she adds with a laugh.
As you probably know by now, Bullock's gut instincts paid off in ways she would have never imagined – winning both an Academy Award and Golden Globe for her Best Actress performance. “I think Sandy gave all she had into her performance, because she wanted to give the story the weight and importance it deserves,” explains her husband in the film,.part-time actor and full-time country music star Tim McGraw, months before she was even nominated. “She's an incredible actress, the work she does in The Blind Side only reinforces that fact.”
A few weeks before the film's release, Bullock, McGraw, Hancock and several of the other cast members, along with Leigh Anne and Sean Touhy themselves, gathered for a press day at the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills to talk about The Blind Side. Sandra Bullock discussed her early reservations about taking on the role, what it was like working with the real Leigh Anne and how she had unknowingly given the best performance of her career (which would be confirmed by her industry peers three months later).

Since you are playing a real-life person, but not somebody we are used to seeing all the time, how did you go about bringing Leigh-Anne Tuohy to life onscreen? Are you just trying to capture the spirit or her, imitate them or just bring the character forward? “That’s a tough one, because I think I do try to get as close -- I mean, you don’t need an energy like Leigh Anne’s, ever. She might not be famous here, but she’s known in other places. I felt a great sense of fear in trying to tackle that, the person she is, but also a great sense of obligation to be true to this wonderful dynamic, because John Lee (Hancock) could not explain Leigh Anne to save his life. But when I met Leigh Anne, I said, ‘Now I know why,’ because she is original. There is such a dynamic that exists between Leigh Anne, Sean and their children, that you wanted to pay homage to them. I wanted to, a close as I could. So, I did my best.”
What was it about the character of Leigh Anne, on the page, before you actually got to meet and work to her, that appealed to you as an actress? “Initially, when I was approached with the film, it’s a beautifully written story, you can see it play out, but I didn’t know how to play Leigh Anne. I didn’t know how approach it or what I could bring to it, so I just kept saying, ‘No, this is not going to work for me.’ And John said, ‘Well, why don’t you just come meet Leigh Anne.’ So, I met Leigh Anne for the whole day, and I left there completely exhausted because of the energy she has, but in love with this human being and who she is at this time on the planet, but I still didn’t know how to play her. I had no idea. I didn’t know how to bring that to life and be truthful and do a could job with it. I don’t know at what point I said ‘Yes.’”
So, how did you know when you ready to play her?“I don’t know when was that, I don’t recall. I don’t think I ever said, ‘Yes.’”

John Lee said it was after the trip to Memphis and that you called him up and said that the role terrified you, so you had to play it. “Yeah. But I don’t think I ever really agreed to do it.” (laughs)
What was it about this story that really resonated with you?“First of all, it’s a beautifully executed book, especially for someone who has been around football players her whole life and still knew nothing or cared anything about the game. I was in such awe of what it takes to be an athlete and what the coaches contribute to these children’s lives and how they support, push and inspire. I had a real sense of jealousy that they got to experience that and I never did – as an athlete or someone who is able to be part of that. Even though their intentions were to always lend a hand, everyone came and questioned them, of course, because we don’t trust anyone who does anything nice, that’s just the sad world we live in. But (the Tuohys) they didn’t care. They kept going, and it makes you feel like you need to step up your game. So, (I figured) whatever wonderful actress is going to play Leigh Anne Tuohy, it’s going to be an inspirational story, a true-life story, that we are capable of so much more than we think we are because we don’t live in a world that supports the good that we can do. They all want it to be something bad so that it can sell some papers or a news report.”
Sandra, what kind of impact did Leigh Anne, as a person, have on you or has had on you since doing the movie and playing her? Do you now think, “What would Leigh Anne do in this situation?” “You mean, WWLATDo? (laughs) That’s what I would say on set, ‘What would Leigh Anne Tuohy do?”
Do you ever hear her in your head? (Laughs) “The nice thing is that we get to play these people and get to experience lives that we would normally never come into contact with. The beauty of Leigh Anne was, one of my biggest questions was how people use their faith and beliefs as a banner, and then they don’t do the right thing. But they go, ‘I’m a good Christian and I go to church and this is the way you should live your life.’ And I told Leigh Anne in one of our live interviews, I said, ‘One of my largest concerns was at the end of this was that whole banner-holding.’ I said, ‘It scared me, because I’ve had experiences that haven’t been great. I don’t buy a lot of people who use that as their shield.’ And, she was so open and honest and forthright, and I said, ‘Wow, I finally met someone who practices but doesn’t preach.’ We are so quick to tell people how to live their lives, and I am so lucky that I have been able to stay on my path. Even though I have deviated sometimes, but I never felt like I was okay by it, one hundred percent and it didn’t really matter. But then you meet someone who blazes trails and they do it as a family and you feel validated for taking your trip rather than someone else’s. She said, ‘This is the last time I’m doing this. I’m not doing a press junket anymore. This is it. This is your thing.’ And, I said, ‘Sister, this is your story. This is not my story.’ But she has no idea of the path she’s begun in terms of adoption or foster care – it’s not been on the forefront of people’s minds. It is on the forefront on my mind, every day now when I get up, when I look around, I go, ‘Is he? Is she? What is their situation?’ And it’s because of this family, and I think what they are going to do for our country, in terms of being aware of that, I don’t think they realize the profound effect that they are going to have. So, I am happy that being me is great, for me. And with this family, they were being themselves for no other benefit other than they wanted to reach out, lend a hand and had no idea that they would get a son in return.”
What did you think of Leigh Anne’s wardrobe?“How about that wardrobe, Leigh Anne Tuoghy? (laughs) Everything I wore was what Leigh Anne wears. Every design label was what she wears, every make-up was from her palette, her watch was her watch, her nightgown was her nightgown. I remember one day asking John, ‘You got to email Leigh Anne and ask her what nightgown she wears.’ He knew what the response was going to be. All he got back from Leigh Anne was, ‘You all need to get a life.’ (laughs) So, I had a blessing of having my – not of restored faith – but I know have faith in those who say they represent a faith. Whereas, before, I was like, ‘Do not give me a lecture on how to live my life when I know that I am a pretty decent human being. I might not go to church every day, but I know I do the right thing, or I try to. You know, it’s like, ‘You’re going to church and you’re still sleeping around on your wife and spending a lot of everyone’s money. How are you better than I am?’ So I finally met people that walk the walk and it’s made me happy, really happy.”

You are experiencing this tremendous career resurgence. It started the summer hit The Proposal. Why do you think that movie clicked so well with audiences? Also, what do you look for in a movie role? “With The Proposal, from all the right people, the right elements being in the right place, I think nudity had a great deal to do with it. If I would have not that, I would have done it a long time ago. And the second part, in picking roles, my way of choosing them is vastly different now than it was a long time ago, because I can only be that way now because of what I learned from the past. So, I’m choosing now not to choose any work, because when you have had such a nice ride, unsuspected rides and fulfilling rides, you really don’t want to take a step backwards. It really made me satisfied in a way that I wasn’t looking for, but I was blessed with it and now I feel really full – in a good way, where I don’t need to rush out and go find something. I don’t want to.”
When exactly did you decide that you no longer have to rush out and look for roles?“The fact that I realized that I’m staring at a stack of scripts and I can’t bear to open them. I don’t want to step in that world right now, I want to enjoy where I am. So, I don’t know, I think it was over time, probably just having good life experiences that I was actually cognizant of, that I worked in and can remember and was very satisfied with, and I just want to enjoy the ride instead of blasting forward and trying to fill a void that doesn’t exist.”

The Prisoner
A reinterpretation of the 1960s cult classic by Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner tells the story of one man's desperate quest to find his way back to his former life and reclaim his freedom. Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellen, Ruth Wilson, Jamie Campbell- Bower, Lennie James, and Hayley Atwell star in this powerful 6-hour miniseries, which combines a wide range of genres -- from espionage to sci-fi -- into an adrenaline-pumping, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will ultimately make you question what you think is real. As The Prisoner begins, a man, (Jim Caviezel) wakes up in a mysterious place where all traces of his former life are renounced as delusions. You see, nobody resigns from Summakor. Once he had a name, a job with the mysterious spy-ops outfit Summakor and a life in New York. Now he has a number. He's called 6, and everything has changed since he quit the many-tentacled agency. Suddenly he lives in The Village, a too-perfect paradise wretched with conformity. A society where all names are numbers. Where secret eyes watch over hollow bliss. Where dissent is rare and whispered. Where 6 knows he has one option -- escape. Jim Caviezel portrays disoriented, determined 6 and Ian McKellen plays the serenely cunning Village overseer called 2 in a brilliantly reimagined, six-episode sci-fi riff on the Patrick McGoohan series of the 1960s. Are 6's experiences real? Happenings of a parallel universe? Imaginings of his own walled-in mind? You won't know until you enter The Village..Bonus Features: Unaired Scenes; Cast/Creator Commentaries; Beautiful Prison: The World of The Prisoner, A Six-Hour Film Shot in 92 Days: A Production Diary of The Prisoner and The Prisoner Comic Con Panel featurettes; Jamie Campbell-Bower Interviews Sir Ian McKellen and A Six-Part Look Inside The Prisoner.
