Bullock Fires Back At Million Dollar Baby Reports

Subscribe to Sandra Bullock alerts

LATEST: Sandra Bullock is upset by reports she turned down the chance to star in OSCAR-winning movie MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE - because she tried to get the film made for years.

The actress calls rumours she snubbed Clint Eastwood "total rubbish," insisting instead that gossips have got their facts wrong.

She explains, "We had Million Dollar Baby with someone else for a while, trying to get it made. I couldn't get it made. We tried and tried and tried.

"(They were like) Female boxing movies don't sell. I was like, 'This is the most incredible piece.'

"I then started doing Miss Congeniality 2 and they got HILARY (SWANK) and they got Clint."

But Bullock insists she's not bitter about the fact the film went on to net Swank a Best Actress Oscar - in the role she wanted to play: "When things like that happen, that's the way they're supposed to be."
