It’s every actor’s nightmare — or at least 25 of them. Watch the video below to see 25 actors’ early, mostly embarrassing roles cut together in a three-minute torture reel. I would say Daniel Craig, Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger should be cringing. Also that Sarah Jessica Parker’s voice sounds exactly the same, and Sean Connery in Darby O’Gill and the Little People could have been the basis for hunky Gaston in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Tag: Sandra Bullock (21-30 of 43)
Happy Birthday Sandra Bullock! In your honor, we'll get sucked into 'The Proposal' every time it's on cable!
It’s hard to believe that Sandra Bullock is 47 today, isn’t it, PopWatchers? Never mind the fact that the gracious Oscar/Razzie winner has never looked better, but it seems like just yesterday — 1994, to be exact — that we met a talented up-and-comer with a knack for driving bomb-laden buses to safety. (Her only victim: Cans. They were just cans.)
So what better way to celebrate the star, who only seems to be getting better with age, than with a Sandra Bullock marathon? Lucky for us, at any give moment, While You Were Sleeping, Two Weeks Notice, The Proposal, or Miss Congeniality is on cable and we have zero qualms about watching them for the 139th time each. While the Internet (as seen in your 1995 classic The Net) has been happy to point out today that you’ve received something of a karmic birthday bonus, we just hope you have a nice day filled with well wishes, birthday cards (especially if they came from a magic, time-traveling mail box), and quality time with your insanely cute son.
Happy Birthday, Sandra Bullock!
What’s your favorite Sandra Bullock role, PopWatchers?
Looks like the Carrie Bradshaw effect is still going strong. Sarah Jessica Parker tied Angelina Jolie for top honors on Forbes’ 2010 Highest Paid Actresses List. More surprising, Parker bested Hollywood heavies like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Julia Roberts.
Jolie and Parker each took in $30 million in last year, but for very different reasons. The magazine credited Jolie’s success to her viability as an action star in films like Salt and The Tourist. On the other hand, Parker kept things decidedly girly, not only making bank on her leading role in the Sex and the City sequel but also with a designing gig at high-fashion house Halston and through her line of signature fragrances.

Promoting his new book, American Outlaw, Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James was on Good Morning America this morning, in clips from a taped interview with Vicki Mabrey that will air tonight on Nightline. Though he’s hard on himself, he also admits that “I can’t worry about [Bullock] anymore. I think I’ve spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her and what she thinks and what I should do and, like, you know, controlling all my movements and everything else. I think it’s time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse’s happy.”
James was crucified publicly for cheating on his famous wife, right after she’d won the Oscar for The Blind Side, so it will be interesting to see how people will react to his now saying that his devotion to his ex “controlled [his] movements and everything else” while he was simultaneously undermining their marriage.

Vanity Fair's Top 40 Hollywood earners include zero of this year's Oscar acting nominees: Are we surprised?
Check out the full list – limited to creative types (stars, directors, and producers) and the money they earned from movies — and tell us what you find interesting. It’s not really a surprise — we all know Oscar noms don’t typically align with blockbusters — but none of this year’s Oscar acting nominees make the cut.James Cameron tops Vanity Fair‘s carefully calculated list of Hollywood’s Top 40 earners in 2010, with an estimated $257 million (all but $4 million of it tied to Avatar, and that does not include $50 million of Avatar money from 2009). Johnny Depp comes in at No. 2 with an estimated $100 million comprised primarily of his paychecks for Alice in Wonderland, the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film, and The Tourist.
Barbara Walters has revealed eight of the 10 people on her Most Fascinating list, and as usual, it’s a puzzling mix. The list includes:
Justin Bieber: I really hope he sings a version of “Baby” in which he replaces the word “baby” with “Barbara.” Barbara, Barbara, Barbara, oooooh! That would indeed fascinate me.
Sandra Bullock: Agree! The whole first half of 2010 was Sandra Bullock time. Also, everyone loves her.
LeBron James: Was that ESPN special “fascinating” to you?
Jennifer Lopez: Hm.
Kate Middleton: Agree. A new, real-life princess. How fascinating.
Sarah Palin: This is her third year in a row on the list. For someone who despises the “mainstream media,” she sure gets a lot of coverage.
Betty White: It might seem like ages ago that Betty White hosted Saturday Night Live, but that was technically this year!
The cast of The Jersey Shore: Oy.
Usually ABC reveals nine people before the show airs, leaving just the numero uno most fascinating person a mystery, but I guess this year they want to build extra intrigue into the Dec. 9 airing.
So who does that leave us with? READ FULL STORY
Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep, and Oprah to co-star in home-shopping movie. Michael Patrick King, YOU get an awesome cast!
Charmed! Today came the announcement via Universal that Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep, and Oprah Winfrey would all co-star in Michael Patrick King’s untitled project about a home-shopping channel. Wait a tick — you’re telling me I can get Hollywood’s three wisest women for one easy payment of $12?! (Or, $17, if King decides to go the 3-D route.) Can they come with a bonus Slap Chop too?

Deadline.com first reported the story.) Currently in negotiations for the part after Natalie Portman dropped out due to scheduling issues, Bullock would star opposite Robert Downey, Jr. as an astronaut on a remote space station who survives a disaster and must fight to return home to her daughter. (Cuarón also wrote the screenplay with his grown son Jonas.)EW has confirmed that Sandra Bullock is within reach of snagging the lead in director Alfonso Cuarón’s sci-fi thriller Gravity, her first film since winning an Oscar for The Blind Side. (
The role is reportedly a massive one, with Bullock the only actor on screen for long stretches of the film. It’s a curious choice; Bullock hasn’t done straight-forward science fiction since 1993′s Demolition Man. She had been reputedly circling the action comedy Most Wanted with Ryan Reynolds, and the 9/11 drama Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close with Tom Hanks, two movies that seem more obviously in her wheelhouse. With this film, however, she appears to be heeding the advice of Paul Haggis, her director in 2005′s Crash, from EW’s recent cover story on Bullock’s career: “I think she should do whatever scares her, whatever makes her really uncomfortable.”
What do you make of this choice, PopWatchers? Would you rather Bullock stick to more familiar territory? Or are you intrigued by her attempt to branch out into a new genre?
