Sandra Bullock reveals her #MeToo story

Sandra BullockSandra Bullock opened up to InStyle magazine and got emotional as she talked about the #MeToo movement.

Having recently donated $500,000 to the movement, she said, “It’s easy to give money to people who are incredibly brave and outspoken.

“But Time’s Up is not just about the actors — it’s about the single mom who’s been abused, bullied, and sexually harassed… It’s our duty to do whatever we can to help. I can safely say there is not one person I know who hasn’t experienced some form of harassment or doesn’t know someone it’s happened to.”

She admitted that she has also been a victim, saying, “It happened to me when I was 16. And you’re paralyzed to a degree… Up until recently it was the victim [who] was shamed, not the perpetrator.”

Sandra is currently promoting her upcoming heist film Ocean’s 8, made up of a predominantly female cast. She revealed that the filmmakers initially didn’t think the women would all get along. But they were quite wrong.

“They thought we’d hate each other, but the exact opposite was true… with Sarah [Paulson], it’s like when you’re in school with that friend, and the teacher says ‘Stop talking,’ and you just start crying and laughing. It’s like a chemical imbalance. We’re each other’s little drug habit.” ~Marriska Fernandes

    What BS. Sandra and other actors have made millions of dollars by providing sexual favors to get parts. Isn’t that the definition of prostitution? Hollywood and it’s members are accomplices in keeping this type of business practice going. No wonder why Hollywood is dysfunctional and it’s movies are projections of that dysfunctionalality. There are some of the general public who looking to escape this dysfunctionalality rather than stay in it.
    Hollywood and it’s members have lost all credibility as being our moral compass.

    Bill. Talk to the women in your family and ask about their experiences. You will be shocked and amazed. Most women have been on the receiving end of inappropriate behaviour. Doesn’t matter whether they work in Hollywood or the local diner. It has happened to most of us. Please don’t dismiss this as b.s…..it’s not.

    I’m having trouble believing that anyone would drop this beautiful woman both inside & out for a tattoo queen he must of been out of his freakin mind! & bill it is people like you & Mr.Trump the reason why these women have not come forward along time ago knowing that people like you would do everything in your power to discredit them & make them look like liars! & the only reason they all have just come forward now is because Mr.Trump said that what he had said he does was just locker-room talk & nothing more – so they just said enough of that as they knew it wasn’t just locker-room talk & that he actually took advantage of his position as a Celebrity to take advantage of them! Of course Mr.Trump now wants to say it wasn’t his voice on the tape that it was a fake like everything else that is true about him fake news – what a very sick man he is! & you sound like you would do the same thing if you were in this position! So that is why this me-too movement has taken form & is going to take many people down – The Bible says be sure your sin will find you out so if they are lying then that too will come to their own down fall!

    Way to victim blame there Bill. That’s like saying a prostitute can’t be raped. You are part of the problem

    Bill – you are so wrong hon. I’m sorry, but that’s true. It happened to me in high school. A teacher I trusted groomed and befriended me in 1987, then started a sexual relationship after telling me he loved me. Everything he said turned out to be completely untrue. I wound up the victim being blamed and told I was a slut, when in truth he was the slut. I wasn’t his first victim, but when the truth came out, he had all the athletes say they had slept with me, too. So unfair, none of them ever touched me. I had relations at obviously different times with two men up to that point, so no where near a slut! As a result, my senior year was extremely miserable with the school believing me yet I had to have a tutor, that bastard still got to teach. I did not walk with my graduating class and my picture was removed from the yearbook after it was submitted earlier that year. I was made out to be this horrible person and he was commemorated. 2018 marks 30 years since graduation.

    What? Was that even english? I applaud sandra for opening up. I too thought I was a victim but I hate that word. Im a survivor of sexual abuse and ive learned it wasnt my fault. It was his.

    Maria are you drunk??

  10. Steph • May 6, 2018 @ 8:26 AM

    Hug your sons, love them. Daily! Instruct them on how to be compassionate, loving. Role model to them kindness, carefulness. Correct them with love when they are not. Talk to them about the moral and legal rules of proper courtship. Be available to them with an open heart and non judgemental attitude. Help them to feel good about themselves. Etc etc etc. … cross your fingers and pray to God you did your best. One more… Instruct them to be at home by ten. Lastly…limit them watching that shit from Hollywood. Those people produce some of the most immoral acts of human existence, imaginary and real.

    Hey John Plum….shove it! Trump may have talked locker-room….no worse than some of the waitresses I used to work with. His predecessors were a serial rapist and a gay bath-house denizen who put a dude in a dress and passed it off as the 1st Lady(boy). Both of them…and Hitlery…made numerous trips to child-sex-slave islands. You’re upset about a little foul language? Clearly your head isn’t in the right place! (be sure to give your prostate a good exam while it’s up there!)

    Maybe if Bill learned how to spell those big words he’s using people could begin to take him seriously.

  13. kerry • May 13, 2018 @ 10:30 AM

    This is a serious subject. Yes Bill you are correct when you state that hollywood and the majority of the people working there should be the last to pretend to be moral but at least someone is trying to shed light upon the horror that many people have had to grow up with especially when they are abused by the very people that are supposed to protect them. Very sad!!!!!

    I think its about time that men also start a movement #ustoo!!!

    We have lost track of humanity in general and are so god damn perplexed with #metoo movement. Come on seriously we going to get gender biased here and also when talking about feminism. Most men don’t get equal pay due to favoritism so should us men start a movement called Anti-Favoritism!!

    Lets all try to be humans first before we get so high strung up on gender!

    P.S – I am sure many men get used my women in power and get harassed; time to start #ustoo!
