If you are among the ones who think that Sandra Bullock is, in real life, like her characters you are very wrong.
Even if she’s adorable on screen, in real life she likes to be in control and she’s a really difficult person.
“I like to iron,” Bullock tells Parade magazine in its upcoming issue. “Ironing is comfort. It’s control. I’m a nutty person who likes to make sure everything is in its place. I am a big ball of high energy and organization and structure. Don’t forget, I’m half-German."
“Listen, I know I’m not easy to deal with. I’m controlling, and I want everything orderly, and I need lists. My mind goes a mile a minute. I’m difficult on every single level. I’m aware that I can be annoying.”
“I never did anything according to what anyone else wanted,” Bullock says of her unconventional nature. “That’s why I think I am happy. I do everything 100% — even my stupidest missteps. I know when I’m getting ready to mess up, I’m going to do it full-on. That’s the way I was as a kid.
“Even into adulthood, I look back at some things and go, ‘I can’t believe I did that.’ But I can also go back and say, ‘I did that, I know I’m responsible for that, and I can make amends,’ and we can all laugh at it, because it’s my mistake. I try not to blame it on anyone else unless I fully know it was their fault–and then I have no problem pointing the finger.
“I have to fight every single day to live my true life. I don’t ever want to come home saying, ‘I should have spoken my mind. I shouldn’t have let someone say something that I didn’t feel was right.’ [But] I have to remember that there’s a balance. I’m in the entertainment business. We’re here to entertain people, to make them laugh and forget.”
