Premieres are meant to be the most festive and friendly byproduct of the Hollywood publicity machine, a benign formality wherein stars are slathered with red carpet media attention, and in return the celebrities oblige their probing and frivolous inquiries. But not every exchange goes smoothly, as evidenced when Sandra Bullock recently lost her shit when a reporter dared to turn to the subject of baby bumps:
Sandra Bullock lost her temper at the premiere of Infamous when a reporter from one of the beloved celebrity weeklies asked if she has a baby on the way.
Bullock whipped around, got right in the reporter's face, and pointing her finger, yelled: "Oh my god that is just a disgusting question. And you know what? What if I couldn't have kids? You know what? That's the way you make women feel when you ask them that question."
It would be entirely presumptuous to assume that Bullock's defensive diatribe on behalf of the global sisterhood of barren women somehow inferred that the actress is harboring any sterility-related hang-ups of her own. Still, her impassioned response does raise the question, particularly when just minutes later she responded to an usher's polite offer to show her to her seat by snapping, "Thanks, but last time I checked, having stagnant ovaries doesn't make you go blind."
