Sandra Bullock Says She Nearly Quit Acting Because Of Hollywood Sexism

Why do I feel so (expletive)?

It was because of this upbringing Bullock, 53, had a hard time fitting in in Tinseltown, but it wasn't until later in her career that she understood why.

Sexism nearly chased the beloved Sandra Bullock out of Hollywood.

The 35-year-old actress chats on Thursday's edition of Ellen about the massive support she received from her famous co-stars in the ensemble film, in which she plays the role of Daphne Kluger.

The upcoming female-led Ocean's 8 is hitting theatres soon and the star-studded cast are making their rounds to promote the film. The decision to reboot the "Ocean's" franchise with actresses was met with far more excitement than what happened with Paul Feig's "Ghostbusters" reboot a couple years ago.

"And I, of course, was freaked out and loved it so much, and I was like, "Really?' and she goes, 'You got an ass like me".

'Sons of Anarchy' actor Alan O'Neill dies at 47
I'll personally miss knowing Alan isn't sharing the planet with us any longer, despite the miles between L.A. and Dublin. He also appeared in the United Kingdom crime drama Inspector George Gently in 2009.

Expounding a bit more on what the Rihanna aura is like, Bullock described her as "still".

Bullock then described that she had a "wake-up moment, where I was like, 'What is this feeling?"

In recent months, Hathaway has been vocal about her changing body size and the camaraderie among the "Ocean's 8" stars.

Name: Adriana LimaInstagram: adrianalimaWhat you know her from: One of the most recognizable Victoria's Secret Angels, Lima is one of the top models and has appeared in films, Super Bowl ads and campaigns for brands including Anna Sui Jeans, Gasoline and Mossimo. Can't we get these women a fresh concept instead of leaving them to try to reheat George Clooney and Brad Pitt's (and Frank Sinatra's) leftovers?

Ocean's 8 (M) opens in New Zealand cinemas on June 7. "We just wanna watch a f-kin" movie'". As sleekly constructed as Ocean's 8 is, it's not as artful in its execution as previous installments were. It's a poster, maybe even a trailer, but not a story, and not a movie.
