Bullock believes “everyone wanted us to be pulling each other’s hair out.”
Ocean’s 8 hit theaters earlier this month, and the all-female cast did an amazing job of winning over critics and fans of the franchise. The soft-reboot of the heist series has been set up as a trilogy by the powers that be, even if they have yet to announce it. Think about it, Ocean’s 8 can complete a trilogy much like the George Clooney films did. A second and third film, Ocean’s 9 and 10, can be released without messing with the continuity of Ocean’s 11 through 13. Then, a box set of 8-13 can be sold to fans once everything is completed. Brilliant.
Sandra Bullock, who plays Debbie Ocean the sister to George Clooney’s Danny Ocean, recently sat down with her castmates on The Graham Norton Show and revealed that the press attempted to pit her against her co-stars. “We were expected not to get on,” Sandra explains. “My publicist got an email from a tabloid saying they had heard I wasn’t getting on with everyone else on set, and I really took it personally until I found out each one of us had got the exact same email.”
“Everyone wanted us to be pulling each other’s hair out, but it’s just not true,” she continued. “They wanted the cliché of a group of women not getting on, but we didn’t live up to it,” added Helena Bonham Carter. During the interview, which included Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, and Cate Blanchett, the ladies get along beautifully, and their chemistry is what makes Ocean’s 8 a must watch.
