Cast of Oceans 8 turn the red carpet into a runway

Sandra Bullock Said She Once Considered Bailing On Her Hollywood Dreams Because Of Rampant Sexism

When speaking with the journalists, Sandra explained that her mother always raised her to be her own woman; to be strong, independent, and forging her own path to success. Why do I feel so (expletive)?

Cape Town - Sandra Bullock revealed in an interview that she almost left Hollywood because of the sexism.

Ocean's 8 hits theaters Friday. So it was a big "wake-up moment" when she arrived in Hollywood, which is infamous for its boisterous boys' clubs.

Additionally, Cate Blanchett, who worked alongside Sandra in the Ocean's 8 film, explained to the publication that she was almost driven out of the entertainment industry for the same reason. "I was like, "What is this feeling?"

Theresa May discusses Northern Ireland abortion laws with Tory MPs
Tuesday's debate comes ahead of the Supreme Court considering whether Northern Ireland's laws breach human rights legislation. MPs have won permission for an emergency debate on the abortion law in Northern Ireland.

Bullock did not get into specifics about the sexist behaviour she was subjected to, though she said it's had a lasting effect.

She added that she felt treated a certain way because she was female, and that was hard for her to cope with.

"That was a hard pill to swallow". 'And the director [Gary Ross] told me, "That's great, we have eight women in this movie and need to have as many body types as we can"'. "Maybe I need to do something else for a living.' And that was in the middle of when I was getting work - I didn't want to be a part of that world where there was that experience". But in the case of Cate Blanchett and Sarah Paulson's Tuesday morning Today Show interview, it was anything but.

During the chat with USA Today, she said she never thought about her gender and sex until those higher in power than her denied her access to opportunities. "You know what the poster's going to look like, and you're not being paid the same as the person you've got equal billing and screen time with, and you think, 'Actually, that's not right'".
