Sandra Bullock: I will do comedy "until the day I die"
VENICE (REUTERS) - Sandra Bullock put in a call to the astronauts on the International Space Station for tips on how to play her latest role in space drama Gravity, but America's Miss Congeniality says she will never give up playing comic roles.
"I will do comedy until the day I die: inappropriate comedy, funny comedy, gender-bending, twisting comedy, whatever comedy is out there," Bullock said on Thursday in an interview with Reuters Television.
"Even a bad TV show - if that's where I have got to go at the end I will go there if it's comedy," she said the day after Gravity, in which she co-stars with George Clooney, got its world premiere at the Venice film event.
Bullock and Clooney reportedly were not Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron's first choices for the roles of space scientist Ryan Stone and her country music-loving mission commander Matt Kowalsky, but Bullock went at the part with a vengeance.
