Sandra Bullock says she has "no desire to go to space"

Director Alfonso Cuaron, screenwriter Jonas Cuaron, producer David Heyman, and crowd-favourite Sandra Bullock (wearing quite the hot pink Roland Mouret dress) sat down this morning to talk all things Gravity. Cuaron dismissed rumours that Bullock wasn’t his first choice for the role, saying, “There were people we talked to seriously throughout the process, but we weren’t ready to make the film. We were having serious conversations about making the film two years ago, and that’s when Sandra and I met.”

While she’s been getting rave reviews for her performance, Bullock claims she has no desire to visit space in real life, “[I have] no desire to go to space, unless when I’m 80 my son says, ‘Mom I want to go to space with you.’” She also said that acting in the film was “more like being a part of Cirque du Soleil” than anything else, referring to some of the hydraulic devices they used to achieve the Gravity‘s spectacular special effects. “The discipline in Sandra is really scary… maybe it’s her German side,” joked Cuaron.
