Actress Sandra Bullock is People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman but she is very upset over how women are attacked in the media because of their looks. The 50-year-old actress -- who will turn 51 on July 26 -- is also worried about how little girls are bullied in cyberspace.
"I feel like it's become open hunting season in how women are attacked and it's not because of who we are as people, it's because of how we look or our age," Bullock told E! Online in an interview. "I'm shocked -- and maybe I was just naïve, but I'm embarrassed by it,” she said, adding that she is worried about how she will raise her 5-year-old son Louis in a world where women are not treated well.
The “Gravity” actress wants Louis “to be a good man who values and appreciates women” but finds it tough since she does not see any end to the media attacks on women. She is also worried about young girls who have the “hardest time” facing Internet trolls.
"Little girls are having the hardest time with bullying and the Internet -- somebody with a very large hand and big voice needs to put a stop to it," said Bullock. But she is happy that women are supporting each other in their tough times. "You'd be surprised at the love that you have in our crazy industry," she told E!
"The women have bonded together and have sort of become this tribe of trying to take care of each other and be there for each other in a way, because the minute you step out it's an onslaught,” said the actress, adding that she had a good laugh when People magazine chose her as its Most Beautiful Woman.
She also talked about women she finds beautiful. She wanted to talk about women who “rise above and take care of business and do wonderful things, and take care of each other, then I'm more than honored to be on the cover of this." Meanwhile, the actress is playing a negative role for the first time in her career in her upcoming movie “Minions.”
“Minions” hits theaters July 10.
