"The Blindside" opens Nov. 20 in theaters. In it, Sandra Bullock plays Leigh Anne Tuohy, a wealthy wife and mother who takes in a homeless boy off the street. It is a real life story of the Baltimore Ravens player Michael Oher. There is already possible Oscar talk for Bullock in this role.
I've had some very memorable interviews with Sandra Bullock. I've given her an engagement ring (made out of candy), brought her the original Lollipop Kid from the "Wizard of Oz" to sing to her, and brought in Florence Henderson as my mom to grill her.
In anticipation of interviewing her for "The Blindside" I went through tons of possibilities which all fell through.
What you see is my feeble attempt to make her laugh as I attempt to look like her husband, biker Jesse James.
I think I look more like an old gang member wannabe.
This is a wonderful sweet funny movie and what marvelous family I am so impressed with the fact that this movie is based on facts I have called all of my family and friends and told them to go see it ,I hope they will find a way to continue this great story for us to share ,god bless this family all of them
My husband and I went to see Blindside this afternoon ,and let me tell you ..This is one of the best movies I have een in a long time ,I laughed I cried I smiled I got angry.It was truly a sweet story,and what made it even better was the fact that it is a true story,I am so happy to see that there are people that want to help people less fortunate than them ,but you know this movie tells so much more about the whole family ,there are too few people who are willing to open there hearts much less their homes to practical strangers Iwas so impressed with the fact that their was no need swearing or sexy scenes or excessive violence for it to be a really,really good movie,I don't watch football never really understood it but you know I may just may watch Michael play just so I can smile I would love to see the next chapter in all of their lives if this movie isn;t nominated for an award I will be very surprised and dissapointed
I might add that Sandra Bullock is just SMOKIN' hot in that movie, too!!!
OMC needs more of Gino.
Nobody interviews celebs with his passion to "Get it Right." His sense of humor is huge plus as well.
