Sandra Bullock looks sublime in the November 2015 issue of Glamour, where she discusses her longtime friend George Clooney, son Louis and the pitfalls of fame.
The youthful-looking Sandra said she and George Clooney have known each other for decades, and credited him for helping her find a date once.
“I met George at a party where he was doing Buddy Hackett imitations!” Bullock told Glamour. “George was the reason the guy that I ended up dating dated me. He was like, ‘If you don’t get with her, I’m gonna get with her.’
“He was kidding, but sort of pushing. So we’ve known each other for umpteen-chillion years and have supported each other from afar.”
Like Clooney, Sandra has managed fame and fortune while remaining a down-to-earth person who has a reputation for being genuinely nice. Bullock said fame merely magnifies your personality.
“I don’t think your core changes [once you get famous],” said Sandra. “If you were an *sshole before you got in this business, you’re just a bigger a*hole. You are who you are. I didn’t get into [acting] until later in life. Who I am as a person hasn’t changed. I was already baked.”
Sandra, who adopted son Louis in 2010, said motherhood dramatically changed her perspective on life. “A child forces you to get your sh*t together,” said Bullock. “In the best way.”
Sandra is now dating former model Bryan Randall and has never been happier. At 51, Bullock looks unbelievable, thanks to an anti-aging fitness regimen that includes a low-carb diet, yoga, Pilates, weightlifting, kickboxing and circuit-training workouts, Examiner reported.
The 5-foot-7 brunette beauty does a combination of strength-training and cardio exercise to maintain her age-defying good looks.
“I do a lot of Pilates, kick-boxing and weight training in L.A., and when I’m in Austin [Texas], I run or ride a bike,” said Bullock.
Sandra, who has aged beautifully during the past 20 years, said staying in shape isn’t difficult because it’s her job to work out and look good. “People ask, ‘How do actresses do it [stay in shape]?’ ” Bullock said. “Um, they pay us to do this in order to look good on film.”
In recent years, Bullock has incorporated plyometrics and an hour-long routine that combines yoga, Pilates and fat-burning dance cardio workouts. The new regimen is clearly working, judging by her buff arms and toned torso.
Bullock’s trainer, Simone De La Rue, said Sandra’s super-fit physique is no accident: She works hard and is extremely disciplined. Sandra puts in an hour a day [at the gym], six times a week,” said De La Rue, author of Body by Simone. “She is extremely motivated and driven.”
Bullock’s anti-aging fitness secret also includes a healthy low-carb diet. Low-carb diets such as the Atkins, ketogenic and Atkins diets promote rapid weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
While she’s hailed for her age-defying beauty, Bullock is annoyed by the media obsession with aging.
“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,” said Sandra. “I’m shocked, and maybe I was just naive, but I’m embarrassed by it.”
